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.

Fibs I want to play on Fibs. However I want to play more than just one point matches. Is there a way to set the match length to more than one point? Just want to add I would be happy to donate if you added more features to online play such as the ability to set the length of matches.

Grand master level, 93.65% computer wins in 9563 games, incredible in a coin toss game of luck.

Give me stats or give me death! Good ui and gameplay, but yet another example of an online BG app where the difficulty is managed through fortuitous dice rolls rather than the AI. 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 one of theirs in the converse situation. I've been playing backgammon for years and have never been this "unlucky" on a board with a dice cup. Players deserve stats to keep the developer honest.

Seriously? You can't even enjoy a good game because the computer cheats so bad u hardly win . The computer gets all the double rolls while u get the crappy ones .
