Backgammon King Review

Backgammon King is one of many social backgammon apps on the market. Without any revolutionary features, it is a nice platform to have a quick game of backgammon at home or on the go. Let’s see what makes it an interesting choice.


Presentation of Backgammon King

You can play Backgammon King from their Facebook page or by downloading their apps for Android and iOS. This platform is like many other social Facebook game. To play you have to register with your FB account or play as a guest, but if you do so, you obviously won’t have access to all the features. The game wants you to register with FB so it can have access to your friends list, because you will collect coins for every friend you are referring to the app.

Every game you play on Backgammon King is worth a number of coins. The more you play and win coins, the more you can access games with higher stakes. The platform also offers the possibility to create a private game with your friends and to participate in daily challenges and tournaments. The app doesn’t offer the possibility to have a match play or to use the doubling cube. This is a flaw that I would like to see fix, not only on Backgammon King but on many other social backgammon.

If you are a successful player, you will increase your position on the ranking and thus gain access to more challenges.

If you are short in coins, you can buy some for few dollars, or watch commercial video in order to get some. Be aware that having a lot of coins won’t make you rich because you have no way to change them back for real money. You will just have the pride to be the richest player on the platform.

Graphically, Backgammon King is pleasant but not as good as other social games like Lord of the board or Backgammon Ace. For what I saw, there is only one kind of board available and I find the checkers movements a bit stiff compared to other backgammon platforms an apps.


Our opinion on Backgammon King

Backgammon King is just an average social backgammon game like many others. It has the same flaws as the other one, but don’t really bring anything new or special on the table. It is definitely not my first choice to play recreational backgammon online.
