Play one of the oldest board games in the world...Backgammon! Remove all of your pieces from the board before your opponent. Backgammon requires you to move your checkers after a roll of two dice. The number of dots on each die dictate your options. For example, if you roll a five and a one, you must move a checker five points forward, and a second checker one point forward.

Even with an auto-roll they can still stall on the move. And why do players whine about others being runners when half the players who beat me don't offer me a rematch - I don't either any more if the other player plays mind games or doesn't even say hi or gg, one of the two at least. If they delay, I delay more than they do, see how they like it. Sometimes this works.

I wish players wouldn't play mind games with the timer, taking up almost all the time to make an automatic move, in order to irritate their opponent. It's rude. Those players go on my blacklist. I won't be playing them again.

I can never find people to play with me I am a fairly or I might say a real good player .      Worse part is when they say they are avalable so you go the their table and they wait for you to move and quit and you think they are there and they are not ,          not only are they gone so are my points .      I am going to go look for players this minute   some of the folks i like a lot .

Glad to see this is still a useless freaking joke. Force you to watch an ad tp play a fixed game. That is if it doesn't just freeze up on you. How come your freaking ads never freeze up?

this game is set up to cheat the players, in other words when your partner is losing something happens so that your partner wins the game even though your winning against that player this is some bull. The dice changed when I was winning from a double three to a 4 and 6. The next thing I know is that the game is over. And the loser becomes the winner. Taking your points with them. Points don't really matter to me it playing a fair game this game needs to be removed from the site!

@puckadoosaskia because masque is a crappy company that REFUSES to fix the innumerable problems with this game.  It never has despite hundreds of complaints.

@boubou.mini  Oh....after the roll.  Can't answer that one.  As far as the "running" goes, that could be a variety of reasons.  I like to play within a certain range of my own rating; if 1 win or 1 loss takes that player out of my range, I may leave.  It depends on the speed of the game, if we're sharing conversation, or whether or not they attempt to cheat.  The program favors high rated players with the dice.  If someone 200 points higher than me wants me to play, I pass on it.  They're just looking for a cheap and easy win.  If you do mange to win a game like this, it's best to find a different opponent.  Why?  Because in a second game, the program will babysit them and allow them to completely dominate the game.......if you don't care about your rating, it's funny to watch, though.

@boubou.mini  ......hey, mini, I'm glad to hear I'm not the only one this crap upsets......those players stall the time clock before they roll at strategic times to manipulate the dice, either to get doubles or get exactly what they need to get off the bar or a blot hit.  I used to curse them for it but it does no good, then I used to do it right back to them............now I don't even bother, and yes, I also refuse to play them regardless of how our ratings match-up.  I have my own way of countering anyone who stalls the clock on me before or after the roll, and its effective.........unfortunately there's not much else you can do about those who play clock games.  You can "double" them to force an auto-roll, but if they don't "re-double", the auto-roll goes to you but not them.  Masque needs to do many things to improve the site, but for starters they should go to an automatic auto-roll for each player every game.

@Jana J The solution to your problem : If the game starts, no matter who moves first, and your opponent abandons the game room, just let his timer run out, and wait for the computer to tell you the game is over. That way, you lose no points. And if you made the first move and your opponent bails, the computer might even award you points for the game. So let them bail. But write down their usernames and don't play them again.

yep..he's kind of lazy, i guess cheating is hard work. Eveadam, nemati, ghazal..whatever his name is, this guy is a sick person...don't worry about him, the real leaders are the players below him.

@michael.todd_dsm @boubou.mini  Its completely wrong that this happens. A game is a game what on earth is wrong with these fools that makes them think they so good. Noooooooot Noooooooot

boubou.mini

@dsm_michael.todd @boubou.mini Even with an auto-roll, they still have 44 seconds to move so they can still stall you. If they stall me once, I stall them on an automatic move, to get on their nerves. Or I use up all the time both on the roll and the move. This works......sometimes. I wonder what your  way is of getting back.....I was looking at the leaderboad, and I've played one of the names, a real *** who plays mind games. And I keep seeing players whine about other players who are runners, but these same players beat me and don't offer me a rematch. It's happened to me so often that now , if I win, I don't offer a rematch if the player doesn't even say hi, or delays or plays mind games.See how they like it.

@Dice Man @Jana J .......  i ask  royal games why doesn't the game   play by the correct  rules?    &   here's what they wrote back , " The game does not necessarily follow the standard rules of backgammon, but modified King.com version of backgammon"...

@just4theinternet @ZZTop @just4theinternet, you are correct, but you can play it all day long and will not find the flaws that this site has. They few and far. It is a superior site than this one. Which one do you like???

dsm.michael_todd
dsm.michael_todd

@boubou.mini @dsm_michael.todd  if one who is ranked way higher than you gets a cheap win off you, they'll run, especially if it was a close game............just try to avoid the players that give you trouble.  The next time we have a private chat, I'll share with you how to counter the clock-stallers without stalling the clock yourself.

@Dice Man @just4theinternet @ZZTop   thanks ,  but i like this site the best.. for these reasons... the move rules  here are at least correct   & i dont have to drag every piece ..  there site the move rules are way off in certain situations  ....  what i dont like here is that the dice are not accurate , ads are to many and to long & there is to much time to move or forfeit,  so players stall .. their site once you hit 192 points thats it  & no one ever looses any points...

Dice Man

@just4theinternet @Dice Man @ZZTop ... It just records how many games you played, not how many games you win. The dice are accurate 99% of the time  and you do not run into the double problem like you do here. It is fair backgammon as opposed to rigged backgammon..
