Last Roll for Backgammon


This is a training application for backgammon.

One of the most important numbers to remember in backgammon is the last roll position.
The shortest way to be a strong player is to memorize them,
so that you need not count in time-pressured matches.

This application shows the positions of just 2 checkers or 1,
in a sequential way or in a random way, as you tap the screen.
Enjoy remembering the last roll numbers and refine your skill in the final scene of the game!!

Useful Good way to learn these common positions. Would be incredible if the opponents position was updated ands well then we could see if it's a double /redouble, drop/take. Then, the value of this app to improving your game would be immense. Updated to include different opponent positions. I just randomly discovered however that if you push on the left side of the screen under the diagram you get equity info for double take, pass and no double. This isn't clear as the is no button but this is a great feature
