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.

One of the very best backgammon apps I've seen, certainly. However highest difficulty settings are not that challenging and the post-Crawford doubling strategy for the AI is just incorrect (AI should double immediately every time, doesn't).

Best android backgammon app! I rate GNU backgammon and this definitely doesn't cheat in my opinion. Unlike all the other backgammon apps who assure you they don't. Completely addicted!

Nice GUI good experience What else can I say? The developer solved its issues while playing with FIBS, so Alca: well done, good app. We may only miss the possibility of multipoint games, but that is not so important to achieve. Thx Alca.
