an essential timekiller

It plays well enough to be entertaining even to a seasoned player. A good way to learn too. Does it cheat? Not during the game but it does win 4 out of 5 opening throws. Against a good player, I would not like that at all. However, this application is a bit timid with opening moves and it does not "know" how to defend agaist a backgamme so I don't mind: I still beat it,

AI doesn't cheat?!?! Thats like saying you dont lie about doubles... Installing.

has bugs that prevents legal moves and definitely gives more doubles to CPU. they claim the dice rolls are random, but if that is true they are using a rubish random number generator. shame because I liked it.

Great game I am a backgammon enthusiast. I have studied backgammon and know that it's about strategy and understanding dice rolls. Good AI looks at the law of average dice rolls. I believe the algorithm for this game does not cheat. It's based on intelligent statistics.
