"Excellent backgammon game for computer."

January 25, 2014  |  By tpt1000

 |  Version: Absolute Backgammon 8.1

Pros

Skill levels for any player, from beginner to advanced.
Great preference options for sound, speed and move options to tailor to your specific taste.
Good visual layout.

Cons

One minor thing, I would like a bit more color distinction between the pieces and board.

Summary

Lots of fun to play.

"I am sorry that I ever paid for this app"

November 19, 2013  |  By DickBurke2014

 |  Version: Absolute Backgammon 8.1

Pros

None that I can find

Cons

Dice roll for computer is highly favored for the computer. I have 10 pieces on the board and the computer rolls doubles four or five times in a row. When I tried to load new boards the screen expands and I can not get it back to usable size.

"Great game! Nice presentation"

December 03, 2012  |  By Malc1961

 |  Version: Absolute Backgammon 7.7.7

Pros

Nice to play a game which doesn't appear to be using loaded dice! Also like the presentation and statistics feature.

Cons

The board is fairly small on my computer (13" Macbook Air). More the computers fault as it has a small screen. I'm also very new to Mac so it could be me.

Summary

I have only had the game for 2 days so far but I'm impressed.

"Excellent game"

January 30, 2012  |  By ToSeek

 |  Version: Absolute Backgammon 7.5.6

Pros

Attractive graphics, comfortable user interface.

Cons

Probably an illusion, but you do sometimes get the impression that the computer is manipulating its rolls to succeed.

Summary

I've spent far too many hours playing this game, but it's so easy to play just one more.
