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.

    This is yet another of those online games that freeze the board just when you're winning. Wish there was a reset button or something.

    Good ui and gameplay, but absolutely,positively, needs statistics so you can easily metric the "randomness" of these dice. The harder the level you play, the more I question this as your opponent nearly always rolls multiple doubles when behind in pip count at the end of games. Opponent also seems to get very fortuitous rolls when you have blots in your home row, while you almost never can hit o

    The dice roll is totally fixed, you need to add a randomness to the rolls
