Description

If you liked the popular Windows version of this classic board game, then you must give this iPhone/iPod/iPad version a try.

Play against the AI at four levels of difficulty, or play against another player (on the same device). REPLAY the most recent opponent's move. Get a HINT from AI to help you with your next move, or UNDO your most recent move. ROLL your dice with a shake, or with a single tap. AUTO COMPLETE a move with a single tap on your stone.

Use the SETTINGS menu to select board style, enable or disable sounds, control speed of the stone animations, and more. Use the HELP screens to learn about the game.

A quote from http://www.65cubes.com/windows-shopping-backgammon.html:

"Backgammon, by George is one of those which gambling players consider as an ancient backgammon program... But do not laugh at it. Some of the most successful gambling players confess that they have started humbly by practicing backgammon with Backgammon by George."

Art by Miguel. Programming by George!

What's New in Version 1.01

A bug was fixed, so now one can properly change the stone speed; doubling is done correctly, and the AI is slightly smarter at the highest level of difficulty.

Perfect!!

:
I had originally got the previous version of this game and thought "what moron wrote this program?". This updated version has great AI and is completely realistic. Apparently less Bong smoking during the writing of this masterpiece. Great Job!!!

5/5 stars

Best Backgammon game by far

:
I love this app. The graphics are clean and simple and don't detract from the purpose of the game. The AI is challenging but fair, and the interface works perfectly. Five stars!

2/5 stars

Nice but needs some tweaking

:
Really like a lot about this game -BUT...two complaints
1) AI seems to roll a lot of doubles at crucial junctures (am playing at the hard level)
2) no way to reset score unless you delete & reinstall app
