Okay, before you start wondering what the heck ‘Backgammon’ actually is, I’ll explain it very briefly for you. Essentially it’s a lot like checkers, except you roll dice to move your pieces around the board, to collect and roll them out the opposite side, while being able to land on your opponents’ markers, thus slowing them down from winning. That’s about it…with a bunch of rules on how exactly to do that.
You’re in luck though, because this Android app knows the rules, all you need to do is hit ‘roll dice’ and tap where you want your pieces moved, as the app shows available open moves. OK, there’s more strategy to it than that, but you’ll get the hang of it. The Backgammon app has different levels of play from beginner to expert difficulty settings, as well as the usual sound on or off options, and colors.
Seriously, this game is a lot of fun, and I encourage you to try it out before mocking me for writing this review and possibly mocking your parents or Grandparents for playing it!
