User reviews of Backgammon Free
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.

Cheats! I know you guys say you don't cheat but come on! Perfect numbers every time....plays a close game on first 4 levels but then on level 5...all fair play is out and the computer BRUTALLY BEATS YOU PRETTY MUCH EVERY HAND!!! Gets twice as many doubles, never rolls a bad number... Come on! Cheating at its best!

Too easy and backwards Used the app for the first time, agreed with another writer about rookie mistakes, I shouldn't have backgammoned it so easily, also when I choose to play black, the board stayed the same and forced me to play backwards.
