I've been playing with David's Backgammon over ten years.
now. Great experience, no complaints.
Absolute BG (same developer) is even better and support 64 bit structure which DB is not.
Customer service is great, although you don't need much. David the owner/developer is quick to answer and always on top of everything.

Ditto on Maylbu's comments on Absolute BG. I downloaded ver 7.5.2 and it screams on my Macbook Air. It's a great fun product and my skill ego gets pumped up at the "Club Champ" level.

I just don't understand all the rave reviews. I find the play absurdly uneven. The computer rolls about 5 times as many doubles; never, I mean never, misses a blot; always covers its blots on next roll; and just gets the perfect roll 95% of the time. Yawn.

The dice rolls are random. The game keeps track of doubles for each player so you can know his comments are not true. Also, there is a feature to have a set of dice rolls, for a game, to be created at the start of the game so you can know that the dice are not being created to fit the situation as he insists. You can view them to see that the game is using them. Still think the dice are better for the computer player then you can select to use its dice.Alan must not have found these features and statistics.


He's been saying this for years. At least the developer is consistent!!

I love Absolute Backgammon, it is very straight forward, has different options for you to get suggested moves. I like the way the dice is rolled, different board styles. It is a great value for money!

Absolutely absorbing! Most enjoyable game, with excellent graphics, several boards each with matching men and dice, several languages, and several skill levels. What more could you ask for? Absolute Backgamon is very keenly priced and the reply service is one to which others aspire. Well done.

I have never been happier since I started playing backgammon with real people again. That's the way to go. In fact, it's really the main attraction, the banter and human interaction, the click of the dice (real dice). Not a bad game if you can take the flames.

I have used this since 2008, just now updated. No frills to speak of, but it remains a good, clean, straightforward backgammon app and the customer service is absolutely excellent.

It's good enough to beat me (a very average player) about half the time. If I had one request it would be for an additional, higher skill level.

Absolute Backgammon has been a challenging and fun diversion for years. David keeps updating it, making it even more challenging and enjoyable. It also should be noted that David's customer support is second to none, responding almost immediately for questions and help. This awesome game is a must!!!
