Absolute Backgammon overview

Absolute Backgammon is a backgammon game that has superb graphics (more than 32 board styles to pick from), sound effects, speech, and many options and features including 5 skill levels for a fun game of backgammon. Easy to use, even for a beginner. Has a Tutor mode to help you improve your skills. You can also play using just your voice.

It supports game play in English, Spanish, German, French, Italian, and Dutch. Many gameboard designs are available here.

You don't have to concerned about the game being fair. The dice rolls are random and do not favor either player in any situation except by luck. All of the dice rolls, to the used in the game, can be selected to be saved to a file at the start of a new game. These can be viewed to see that the game is actually using them. You can also select to use the computer's dice rolls if you feel it is luckier than you. Also, the stats, kept by the game, will show that the rolling of doubles is statistically correct for both players.

I just rolled 2-2 (Double 2s) four times in a row. Last game I rolled 5-5 three times in a row. I rolled 5-5 six times over the course of the game. I play a lot of backgammon in real life. It's possible to roll the same roll four times in a row, but no one would believe it, The odds of rolling doubles are 6-1 against. Rolling specific doubles are 36-1 against. The odds of rolling the same specific doubles are 1296-1 against. A third iteration 46,656-1 against. A fourth iteration 1,679,616-1. In a previous game, I rolled 5-5 three times in a row. The seven ensuing rolls all included a 5 and another number. Getting doubles is great, but getting the same roll over and over makes play impossible. I can't believe someone hasn't figured out how to create reasonably realistic dice.

It's ok. but slow from perspective of forced moves, especially during bearing off. when game is impossible to win during bearing off, it should just finish the game and declare winner.

This game is as rigged and as genuine as a 3 dollar bill. The computer is waay too lucky with the dice. You win occasionaly but I would say, do not waste your time and money on this crap piece of software...

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.
