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.

World class Having played thousands of games against gnubg on the PC, it's great to have the same level of play available on android now. I hope enough good players can submit 5-star reviews to outweigh the sadly mistaken folks who think that it cheats just because it's so good. Still, like many beginners, I remember thinking I knew how to play backgammon until I started playing the AI. I had to try the manual dice option many times to finally convince myself it was legit. It is. You want to beat it? Get better.

Excellent! As promised, uses a very good AI. I have learned a lot about backgammon by playing against the excellent gnubg. Has ads, but you can turn them off (and optionally leave a donation). Appears to be open-source software. One warning: the app will play sound when you open it. This can be embarassing if you're in a quiet place and there are others around you. You can turn sounds off in the settings.

Top notch Great app and nice to have as worthy an opponent as gnubg on the mobile. It's a shame you'll always get low ratings from idiots who don't understand that the dice are random so if they are losing regularly it's because they play poorly. A few minor bugs in the game play
