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.
As a new player I have to say there is something SERIOUSLY wrong with this game. Is it just me, or does it make any logical sense that the "computer" gets the right roll EVERY SINGLE TIME and the human ALWAYS loses? WHAT is going on with this program?
I am fairly new to this game but would like to play real person. How does that happen? It would be nice if experienced players were curteous enough to respond since I see others have asked this question.
what a cheat game - controls are good if your playing another person but when playing the computer the "dice roles" are not random, the computer always gets whatever number it needs and you never can. I got frustrated never going first onetime and kept restarting just to see if I could win the inital roll against the computer, it took 13 tries to win just 1 starting roll, hardly the 50/50 a random die roll would result in!
Has this happened to anyone else?: Finish a series of games, exit to the lobby just long enough to bring up some music, come back and have 21 less points than what I went to the lobby with? Anyone know how this happens?
noh my golly gosh just seen a player in top ten offering me a splendid opportunity of a game. Simply had to refuse game as so wery worried their points had simply gone 40000 to 20000 in seconds gosh how bloody unfortunate.
@RWFinFW u just got to play this site though. to take the piss out of the peops that always win . watch for people in top ten that have 4000 plus points. on same night they come on to play with lot less points than that
@michael.todd_dsm ... Yes and it ticks me off. Also very annoying when I'm thrashing the computer, only to have it say 'reconnect to server' and yet I know there's no connection problem this end. When you click on the 'ok' connect to server button it starts a new game entirely, again more points deducted. Very bloody annoying.
I can't get anywhere to play the game online. What is this? I signed up and can't find the game rooms where i could play the game.. Please. Someone .. Anyone help me. Walk me through .. Step by step. Thanks.
