I bought this program to help me learn to play backgammon and it's been perfect. Different levels of difficulty, suggested best moves, lots of game analysis and recording tools and the capability to go up to the highest levels of play as I get better. Very satisfied; great value for what you get.

This is Supposed to be version 6.2.2 but it is 6.2.1.
I had to go to the Developer's site to get 6.2.2.

I use to play this game, years ago. Does it still have 1989 graphics? Looks like it.

Game play was always excellent though.

Why are all Backgammon games nonfree games? Strange. However, I downloaded every single one available and this is the best.

I obviously know of David's Backgammon as it's been around for quite a few years. But why would anybody pay for Backgammon when you can get CocoaFIBS for free and get to play people at all skill levels from any country online at any time?

I've been playing David's Backgammon on my Mac for more than a decade and no other computer backgammon even comes close. It is the best in its class -- online or offline. Of course, nothing beats playing a live opponent but the 5 levels of play match anyone's skill. Backgammon has been my favorite game since I learned to play at age 11 (over 40 years ago). David's Backgammon always revives my love for the game.

It may be worthwhile to scroll down some comments, read Espiridon's, and check which ratings are not the only ones and written on the day of registration.
2 out of 4 or 5 in some years would still be cheating.

Great Backgammon game. Works perfectly in Mac OS 10.6, and I really like that it looks like a real backgammon set. Nothing flashy, just a good solid backgammon game.

Have always liked this version of the game, which I first bought nine years ago. Finally upgraded and so glad I did as many of the newer features are awesome. My only negative would be that I beat the opponent more often than my skill level warrants - maybe it is too slow to offer the cube? Or maybe I have just been having hot dice. I have never had a problem with the opponent's cheating (doubt it is possible) or anything else. Thanks David for a great game with great support at an affordable price.
