Backgammon is a simple race game. The object is to move the pieces around the board towards your inner table. Once all 15 of your pieces have arrived in the inner table, they can be removed from the board. The first player to remove all his pieces from the board is the winner. Although the play is highly skilful, the fact that the moves rely on the roll of the dice introduces an element of luck allowing even a novice to win the odd game against a world champion.

    I agree with josh, its amazing that no matter how you say it the dice for computer will majicly get the exact roll it needs over 90% of the time. Its a total waste of time and there is no way I would pay for this app even if the cost was a penny
