"Nice Graphics Good Play"

April 08, 2015  |  By Mike98

 |  Version: BGBlitz 2.6.2


No error(s) and no problem(s) with install.


There are no cons.


If you want to play backgammon against the computer, then BGBlitz is the best choice, because there are no problems with this software. I bought the player version for $23.00 for continuous play. You can also play for free.

"I am disgusted!"

Good graphics


I purchased this game years ago. Of course I have changed Mac's a few times since. I am asked to upgrade every time I try to play. It burns me up. In addition the trial version doesn't is miserable and doesn't work.

Very good Backgammon implementation! The KI is extremely strong and plays better than every human. The tutor will help you to find the best move and improve your skills.

Any other app without an artificial intelligence plays only at a beginner or intermediate level.

What's new in version 2.6.2
It is a bug fix release. Several errors are fixed:
  • Drag&Drop support was broken in 2.6.0
  • An error in the match database introduced in 2.6.0 is fixed. Additionally BGBlitz recognizes the broken databases and repairs them at the start.
  • some bugs in the presentation of the rollout results were fixed, especially ASCII and HTML export.
  • I reduced the playing strength of the weaker levels. There was feedback that they are still far to strong for casual players. One user told me that an analyse he made says that even "Beginner" is still at world class level. Surely not what I intended.
  • some smaller bugfixes
