XG Mobile Backgammon


XG Mobile is the portable version of the acclaimed program "eXtreme Gammon" for PC. You can now have the power and accuracy of eXtreme Gammon in the palm of your hands.
XG Mobile is for all strength of players:
• You are a beginner? Do not worry, XG Mobile will let you know when you make a mistake. That’s a fun and efficient way to improve your skills
• You are an expert player? You can practice against a world class opponent (stronger than the best player in the world).

Here is what some experts say about XG Mobile and eXtreme Gammon:
- ★ - NEIL KAZAROSS (5 times American Backgammon Tour Winner, Backgammon Giant #3): "I can now state that XG is stronger than its competitors on equivalent settings as well as at least several times faster on those settings."

- ★ - MOCHIZUKI MASAYUKI (2009 World Champion, Backgammon Giant #2): "I like eXtreme Gammon very much. I truly believe this program is the strongest bot in the world."

- ★ - MICHIHITO KAGEYAMA (Runner up in the 2012 World Championship, Backgammon Giant #4): "[...] this time I took only my iPad at the Backgammon World Championship 2012. I often checked some positions by using XG mobile. It's really fast and easy because iPad starts up in a few seconds, and I can arrange checkers by using touch screen"

- ★ - CHRIS BRAY (Author, Backgammon Correspondent for The Independent): "My strong recommendation is to invest in XG Mobile. Like the PC version it will quickly become the de facto standard for the game"

Best Portable Backgammon Bot I'd give X2 Mobile 5 stars if program saved player's moves for analysis. Also would prefer an exit button. But if one is looking to hone their skills on the road, this is the app to purchase!

Program cheats Initially I loved it but it became clear quite quickly that the computer cheats. For example when hit in his home area it often becomes impossible to throw the right number to get out. The program meanwhile happily continues to throw a lot of doubles! This sort of scenario happens A LOT. To the point where I was so frustrated that I uninstalled it!

Good app -but it still seizes .dice suspect Still seizes. .latest version better, but seizes still Plus now "settings" don't hold. Its miraculous dice all the time is a joke. It hits any open blot I have about 95% of the time. How many times you seen it dance on a four or five point board, never goes beyond three. It's on 1st or 2nd go forget the constant dancing I get every time. Once it got in first go on a five point board 6 times in a row.yep 6. I hit each time and it just came in. Does it all the time on 5 pt board . Too suss

Pretty good, but question the tutor. I love the game. Fairly user friendly, but 75% of the time when I take the tutor's advice I get knocked off. The computer just "happens" to roll the exact numbers needed to do that....hmmmm. Very frustrating for trying to learn the finer points of the game. And it gets doubles often when needed to pull ahead. I do like the app. The best I have seen so far, but may not play with the tutor mode often.
