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.

Why pseudo-random dice? Why use PRNG algorithms rather than /dev/urandom ?

laughable This app is ludicrous,,,you will have to be the luckiest person in the world to win two games in a row..the rolls that the CPU gets are laughable...am having problems getting this one sided app off my device. Do not recommend.Rating -10

Dont waste your time If you advance the AI it just gives them lucky rolls. There is no strategic change. The rolls are ridiculous. I have played several other backgammon apps and this is the only one I found that seems to give convenient rolls to AI. NO FUN!! I ENJOY STRATEGIC PLAY NOT SET UP

Cheats This game cheats. The AI always seems to get very conveniently lucky rolls. Also, way more doubles for both AI and human than any real life game. Nonsense automatic resignation acceptance. Sometimes the incorrect value is assigned for the end game (ie no pieces off may count as regular rather than gammon). Also, the computer arbitrarily decides the value of a game resignation as gammon or regular regardless of board position. It is stupid to only allow 1-point FIBS matches. I want my IAP money back.
