Not much fun when you can never win.

Sorry, this has not been one of my better purchases.

As noted by other reviewers, there are some definite problems with this product that need to be addressed in subsequent models. First, it needs a backlight or some way to illuminate the game. I have a brand new game with top of the line new lithium batteries and still could not see the board well enough to make any moves. In addition, when I turned on the game, the icons appeared to be burned into the screen, and, consequently, I could not figure out when I made a move or the computer opponent made a move. These are serious technical problems that prevent anyone from playing the game at all.

Incidentally, I do have other games from Excalibur, which do not share these problems. I think this particular model of backgammon needs to be removed from circulation and replaced with a product that has been field tested with a broad base of consumers with differing levels of skill and experience, both with backgammon and with electronic games.

This game is virtually unplayable without a backlight. If you can't see the board, you can't play the game.

I wanted a backgammon game I could take with me when I travel. Not much fun when you can never win. Game does some strange stuff. Several of my men (which are always white) could not be seen and sometimes I couldn't make the moves I wanted. Computer always gets the good rolls. It sometimes makes moves I didn't want to make. What a rip off.

I purchased this as a gift for my husband and had to return. The display is so dark you can hardly see the game. The picture shows a white background, but it is really grey. If you had a Nintendo DS, look into Clubhouse Games as backgammon is on it and it is easy to see and pay.

Received as gift. Screen too dull to see and play. Company phone always busy and never responded to repeated emails. If I could give less than one star, I would. Amazon should drop all products from this company.

This is very limited backgammon. There is no doubling cube, the computer always goes first (no first roll). There is no way to adjust the contrast. It's also very easy to make a move you did not intend - and it doesn't allow you to back up. This company's non-touch screen version, which is bigger, but controlled by buttons - was much better.
