Same as our "Backgammon Free", but no Ads.

Backgammon is a game of skill and strategy and one of the world's classic parlour games, played for recreation and as a gambling game. Like Mahjong, this is a game that is played in social groups in coffee houses and bars. Historically variants of this game are believed to have originated in Egypt over 3000 years ago, but was picked up by the Romans and then later to India. It also spread to east Asia, but was then largely replaced by Xiangqi (Chinese chess). It is now very popular in the west.

Featuring:
-- User friendly interface
-- Strong Backgammon AI
-- 3 Boards and piece sets
-- Full match play + doubling cube
-- Hints, 2 player hotseat and stats
-- Designed for both Tablet and Phone

*Does the Backgammon engine cheat? See "CPU Strategy" page + Manual Dice option (use real-world dice) to prove to yourself that it doesn't*

User reviews of Backgammon
Great look & feel. Quite challenging (could be more so). Would like to see four things if possible in future releases: 1. Auto bear-off option 2. Auto-play forced moves option 3. That the dice aren't rolled when a player has a counter on the bar and all spike are occupied (wastes too much time). 4. (This'll never happen but) The program utilized the Jellyfish neural net engine.

Meh. Weak AI. Probably wouldn't get more than a 500-750 rating on the hardest level. My biggest issue is the auto play after your move instead of requiring a dice pickup to indicate the end of your move.

Cheats. No amount of bs that you publish can convince me that the rolls are random. Don't know why you can't figure it out but you are not alone. It is still entertaining however.

Really like this game. Hard to beat at level 5 because it isn't very forgiving but if you make good dedecisions and moves you can win.
