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.

Backgammon This is by far the best Android backgammon game I have found.

Cheating cheating cheating; also battery issues The developer is a damned liar when he says the dice is truly random. At higher skills, the AI gets exactly the dice it needs every single bloody time, and the human player is nearly always stymied. It almost seems as if the difference between the skill levels is the amount of fortuitous rolls and not actual ply. The resignation system is broken too. The app is also quite the battery hog. Unless you're doing multiplayer also, stay away!

great version but... I live this version off the game. the levels the get very challenging. There is one problem though, once in a while it will get to a spot where it busy won't let me nice my pieces . I have perfectly legal moves but it won't allow me to make any of them The only way to get by this annoyance is to save the game, exit, and then reload it. Also it sometimes resigns what should be a gammon but it only counts as a single. When I am in the same situation it counts double.

One of the worse I don't think the developer bothered to even write a random number generator subroutine; instead they used a simple function to generate the numbers that will always allow the CPU to hit you. I tried to play it for one day and saw the similar CPU behaviour at all levels. Horrible HORRIBLE HORRIBLE.
