    Smile [Backgammon] by Adikus iphone player cheats ?

    I really enjoy Backgammon by Adikus, so I donated to have the full set of features.
    Now that I've been playing for some weeks, I decided to jump to the next level of difficulty, so now Im on level 2

    Is it me? or the only difficulty in this level is playing against a rigged pair of dices?
    I see no improvement in strategy, but a I clearly see an improvement in luck for the iphone player.

    Is this real, or its just sour grapes for not winning as often?

    I doubt this is the case. It would take a lot of work to predict what roll would be good, I doubt the author went to that much trouble. It's probably your impression because the computer is playing better.

    Ok, so I gave it a shot at level 2. Result?


    Then again, I've been practicing for many years

    Didn't notice anything strange about the dice, if anything the computer was a little unlucky.

    I've been playing level 3 for quite awhile and haven't noticed anything unusual. Yes, there have been games where the computer was shockingly "lucky" with the dice rolls, but there have been games where I was as well, just like in real life games.

    I've been playing backgammon for many years and I have a little saying: "The dice don't know a damn thing about odds."

    Well it seems Im not alone... at being a lousy player!

    Maybe I'm not counting the times I do have luck, dunno... I also noticed that having a piece waiting to reenter the board is a magnet for unusable doubles dices...

    I know I know... sour grapes

    I have been playing Backgammon for thirty years, and to a very, very high level, and I am utterly convinced after playing this game for a while that it cheats somehow. The dice rolls it gets are beyond probability by a very large margin. I played a game yesterday when I had to get a 5 or a 2 to get my piece back on the board, and it was EIGHTEEN throws before I got either a 5 or a 2. Meanwhile, the computer was managing to get itself out of a VERY sticky situation. This sort of thing happens too often. It also seems that if you are way ahead of the computer, you will get a very disproportionate amount of very low dice rolls, 1 and a 2 being all too common.

    I have since taken this game off my iPhone - I don't like playing cheats in any game.

    I just got back from a trip where I played quite a few games against the phone. I have to agree with cpives2003, that there were some very spooky circumstances where the phone rolled double-sixes and double-fours several times in a row, while I rolled 2 - 1 over and over. Also, where we each had checkers bumped to the bar, and I had 3 slots to get in, it often took 4 or 5 rolls to re-enter the board. The phone, on the other hand, virtually ALWAYS got in on the first roll, even with only 1 space open.

    Impossible that it's random? No. Highly unlikely though. Still, I won the majority of games, so if it's cheating, it's not very good at it.
