A frequent complaint from some, new to NN (neural net) backgammon programs is "the program cheats". No, it does not cheat. If you are not convinced of this, try one of the NN programs (gnubg, jellyfish) that offer a "manual dice" feature. You will find that they win just as well you roll the dice or not. The perception that a skilled opponent is always incredibly lucky is a due to a combination of human nature..we remember our bad luck and forget the good rolls, and an ignorance of the subtle methods that experienced players use to maximize their chances.

    Many different levels of AI. Lots of options and it keeps track of dice statistics. I'm tried a lot of backgammon apps and this is by far the best free one.

    I want to play on Fibs. However I want to play more than just one point matches. Is there a way to set the match length to more than one point? Just want to add I would be happy to donate if you added more features to online play such as the ability to set the length of matches. Your reply is disappointing. I used to play on Fibs with the Odesys backgammon on my old nokia. You could set match len
