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 bother? Absolutely no point playing, you can be home taking counters off, whilst the computer is still trapped in your base, then the game asks if you want to double? Hit yes and just watch it, first set of dice makes you leave yourself open, then OBVIOUSLY it takes you, you then cannot get back in until it has taken all its counters home and got at least half of them off. Pure cheating, dont waste your time.

Gnu backgammon on android After learning backgammon strategy on gnu backgammon, this is the only app with an AI that can challenge. Seems cpu intensive. Phone hearts up and battery drains fast when playing.

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
