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.

    After learning backgammon strategy on gnu backgammon, this is the only app with an AI that can challenge. Seems cpu intensive. Phone hearts up and battery drains fast when playing.

    This app is ludicrous,,,you will have to be the luckiest person in the world to win two games in a row..the rolls that the CPU gets are laughable...am having problems getting this one sided app off my device. Do not recommend.Rating -10

    If you advance the AI it just gives them lucky rolls. There is no strategic change. The rolls are ridiculous. I have played several other backgammon apps and this is the only one I found that seems to give convenient rolls to AI. NO FUN!! I ENJOY STRATEGIC PLAY NOT SET UP

    I love the app but one annoying flaw is when bearing home from the left side sometimes the pieces will not respond to legal moves. I agree with others that the program seems to be insanely lucky with the dice although I known it is just random generated rolls.

    Best android client. Love the ability to export games for analysis. Would be five stars if could play longer than one point on fibs and tigergammon. Good that source code is on github. I tried to donate but that feature didn't work from my phone.
