Is It Any Good?

BACKGAMMON HD is an impressive implementation of the classic board game. With a variety of options to customize the game, depending on your preferences, it's a great app for backgammon fans. There are also included instructions for the different variants. The app has great graphics, even on the small screen, but would be easier to see on an iPad.

For novice backgammon players, the wealth of options may be intimidating at first, but it is fairly easy to start up a new game, and the option to play a two-player game on a single device is a good one. However, in order to play online you must sign in to the Plus+ network and add friends; it would be nice to have a Quick Play option to quickly find an online opponent.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
