Cpu wins start throw and normally covers. Me, 5+1. Cpu always gets on after being taken and second dice takes an open counter if there is one. Im a piece off it throws doubles. Strangely lucky.
Rhiannon Smyth review Rhiannon Smyth
The game is obviously programmed for cpu to win the majority of times. I have played hundreds of games and for you to say this game is random is to say the players are idiots. Cpu wins 70% first rolls, gets 50-80% more doubles, and never fails to roll the number it needs to either hit my piece of cover its own piece. And I mean never fails. If I have one open piece it will get hit every time without fail, but the cpu can have four open pieces and I will never or rarely hit any. Nothing is that random. It is pointless denying the obvious. That being said, I still enjoy the challenge of trying to beat something that's unbeatable!

Randomness is relative
After test driving this app for several months, considering my experience, and reading other comments, I am not insane. First, there is no such thing as perfect randomness so stop touting your game as such. The seed determines degree of randomness, not your consistent message. The ratio of games won to doubles is off-the-chart non-random. I experienced 2-4 double rolls in a row many times. And I also experienced a high percentage of doubles on the last roll. Stick a fork in me. I'm done.

Love it! Best game I've downloaded in a long while. So far I'm beating the computer. Will see how it goes but so far addictive :)

CPU Gets Perfect Dice
As you go up in levels, the CPU does not make better moves, it rolls the perfect dice all the time. Judging by the number of reviews that see the same thing, that is the way it's coded... not buying their claims of random dice.

Your staff says it don't cheat that it's just luck that allows the cpu to roll 4 box cars in a row to avoid a loss

Game cheats, period
I'm not a sore loser, but I believe in fair play... and contrary to what the publisher says, rolls are NOT based on anything random when it comes to the outcome. CPU rolled 5 doubles in the first 8 tosses. Meanwhile, I get rolls of 3 (1 +2), and it's throwing double sixes to finish the game. Good game, but totally biased in the house's favor.

Great app fast and easy to use pretty much idiot proof. It can also teach you how to play the game very quickly. Much better now with additional features to stores it up, faster dice rolling

Poor opponent - Türkseniz indirmeyin bile...
Hardest is not even close to a starter level player. Only one way to play, very poor analyze by algorithm. Also not possible to drag and drop... Good effort but has so much room to improve. Also, way too many doubles...
DK Yard review DK Yard
Has a habit of pulling off some extremely lucky moves based on multiple doubles. Some would call it cheating. Generally though it's good practice fun. T

Great game but the dice are loaded!
This is an excellent game however I've also played thousands of games both in person and against computers (Jellyfish) but this app constantly and consistantly rolls the perfect throw when the odds are against me. Conversly, I've just played a game where I threw a double 4, 5 times in a row.. That's not normal or random. I've read all the other reviews about the dice and it definately makes me think somethings up regardless of what the developers say. Overall a good app though.
Cindy Sealy review Cindy Sealy
I've had this game installed on my phones for years. It's the only backgammon app that I liked. I just recently installed it on my new phone and there are changes! On my other phones, I won at least 75% of the games on level 5...on the new phone, I'm not even winning 50%! Regardless of what the developer says, the dice are no longer random...they are definitely loaded in favour of the CPU. Still a good game, but I think I'll be using my older phones to play...

Can't find better
I've played this game app for over three years. Over the hundreds of games CPU and I have played, the stats indicate a real world balance of first rolls, doubles, and hits. I've tried other apps, only to be awarded consistent gammons/backgammons If you play the top level you can expect a lot of opponent doubles, perfectly needed rolls, and unbelievable good luck bearing off. The reason is to make you a better player when the odds are against you. Overall I stay ahead by a slim margin, but I work for it.
Don Darby review Don Darby
I've been playing Gammon for more than 40yrs. I can agree with the die seem to,and do,roll doubles a lot more frequently than us mear humans do...any way if you know how, and do play well you can and will win. I just played a game where the cpu had 6 sets of doubles,got off the bar 1st roll, I won a gammon. Learn from the 'take back' cup will keep their rolls, you try others and learn strategic moves. Play well and enjoy PS. Play was level 3,I normally play 4-5

Strategies to win - Love it!
You'll find that the doubling cube can control your winning strategy. As soon as you double the computer works harder. Play with the difficulty levels and number of games to the match to find what suits you for each session. Warm up at easy level and work up! No super intrusive advertising interrupting your game. Yahoo! Dice doubles sometimes are better for opponent but next game reverses. Enjoy! Excellent game!
