How is this product still on the market? It's been years since the switch from the old MacOS (when this was a really good piece of software) to OS X, and this buggy kluge crashes repeatedly. This company and these programmers have had a lot of time to get it right, but it is still floundering. How hard can it be to get it working properly? Do they not know what they're doing, or do they not care? This is what happens when a company buys a software product and doesn't support it with the necessary resources. Either fix it or get off the pot. Feature set is OK, but low marks for stability and obviously a poor value. Stay away from this till they put some heart back into it.

There is NO way that this game is not cheating somehow. All rolls may very well be random, but that does preclude not the possibility of cheating, e.g. if the computer generates the random number file then the computer knows all rolls in advance. The only sure way to eliminate this possibility is to include an option where values from actual, physical dice rolls could be entered during the entire game and then compare the outcomes of these "manual" games to those where all rolls are computer generated. Often the computer will land on my piece 4-5 times in a row. It takes me 5 rolls to get off the bar with only one space open, while the computer will roll the number it needs after 1-2 rolls, repeatedly.
It crashes with something like "555" and "array out of bounds" errors.
Also, if the doubling cube can, according to backgammon rules, be doubled by either player "AT ANY TIME" then why not include this as a feature?
