    "Not like real game"

    February 6, 2011  |   By ladyfish8

    Pros

    The interface was the clearest I have seen. I find those fake wood on the backgammon sites distratcting. There were several settings that were higher constrast too.

    Cons

    The game requires you to play your higher die roll first sometimes. So where there is a blot 3 points away, and you roll a 3, 4 - unless you can play the 4 somewhere else, you don't get to hit the blot.

    Summary

    I wouldn't buy it because it makes you play the higher die first and that wouldn't happen in real play. I don't quite understnd the reasoning behind that, as it is not a rule in any backgammon game I have ever played.

    If you want to play the smaller number first, you need to

    RIGHT CLICK. Right click is for smaller number.
