Graphically, the game is one of the most beautiful you can find online. Playing a game is a real pleasure for the eyes, especially if you play on a tablet.

  1. Are you an individual working for Lord of the Board? Or perhaps you are one of those people who manipulate the game using robotic players that have been infiltrated throughout to ALWAYS win and make real people lose, ALL THE TIME. Have you read the reviews about how the dice are rigged? Everyone is having the same experience. Anyone with some knowledge of statistics knows that the chances of getting doubles in NON-RIGGED DICE is very low, however, it happens VERY frequently with this game, and only to ensure that real people – who have bought coins – will lose, to buy more, of course! This is illegal and the online gaming industry should have legislature to penalize these games that collect money and then steal it.

    1. Hi,
      No I am not working for Lord of the board or any of the platforms I reviewed on this website. I just give my opinion concerning the gameplay, the graphics and the features. I find Lord of the board to be a nice platform to play with my facebook friends. Like I said in my review, I haven’t noticed more suspicious dice playing LOTB that I already saw live, playing with real dice. That said, I wouldn’t buy coins on this game or any other social backgammon app. Not because I think it is rigged, but because I don’t see the point or spending real money for a virtual one.

    2. i have TODAY BEEN RIPPED OFF FOR 210,000 points by lordy of this board that totals 1,210 ,000 points And rating of 40 and 44 that takes thousands of games to accumulate. it’s not frustrating it’s aggravating with no recourse just plain and simple stealing ! so these corporate axe people have ruined the very nature of the game it’s RANDOMNESS . it’s not supposed to be PREDICTABLE AND THE NUMBERS OF CONSECUTIVE DOUBLES TO SUDDENLY WIN A GAME AND THE ROLLS TO HIT THAT THE. ODDS AGAINST ARE COMPLETELY UNREALISTIC THEY DEFY THE REALITY OF THE SITUATION WITH THE ODDS. BEING AROUND 5% and the hitting around 100% it’s just ludicrous to think that lordy of the boardy isn’t pandering to their customers who are spending MONEY MONEY MONEY

  2. This game is such a ripoff. I just played a game where the bot won the entire game and I had only 5 discs in home base. The bot got 4 sets of doubles in a row. EVERY roll was perfect for the bot. It got all of the discs in from THE ENTIRE BACK ARE OF THE BOARD WITHOUT A PROBLEM! I actually thought the bot was the only one playing. And when you try and contact “The Promised Land”, you can’t reach the game makers.! I will bad mouth this game every chance I get on several social media sites!!!!

  3. This game sucks their IT dept must be real stupid they cant stop people from hacking it to win and also it is rigged anybody that says this game is a good one is just as stupid as the creator of the game

  4. Hi David,

    Another one here feeling ripped off by Lord of the Board. I suggest you spend a bit more time on the app before leading others unwittingly into a scam.

    Initially LOTB will match you with other live players, before delivering you into a pit of bots which systematically empty your pockets.

    They are easy to spot, usually coins no more than $7k, highest win $100k up to millions, some even have real names & photos – LOTB goes to some lengths to conceal that they are automated players.

    They all have the same style of play: unless you get your back chequers out right at the offset, and leave none vulnerable during play, you will lose by a landslide, and even if you adjust your strategy accordingly, you will only win 1 game in 10. The game allows players to communicate via emojis, but the bots do not respond to any amount of stalling and sending emojis – they will invite you for a rematch on a $200 (min wager) game if you lose, even if you allow the allotted 110sec to tick down, instead of letting them take their last roll – no live player would intiate a rematch after that 😀

    T’s&C’s are not available anywhere that I can find, but the game is unethically designed. Please do further due diligence before deciding whether this is something you want to endorse. Yes, the platform is nice but it is not entertaining to be cynically duped like this – hopefully regulators wipe this out eventually.

  5. Very true. This game is rigged as a mofo! Fake opponents with perfect rolls, every time. It’s extremely obvious. I’m done with this game. Don’t waste your time or your money. This should be removed from the list. It’s a scam

  6. this game is rigged. you will find out quickly. when the game starts the server finds out who should win. you can start out nice with doubles and big punches. but as soon as you double, it changes. or just as soon as you have all your pieces in the last 6 places. then you start throwing 1 and 2 – 2 and 3 – 1 and 3 because you must not win. (It can also happen to the opponent.) The blows are not random. maybe to start with, but later in the game it’s not random anymore. at the playoffs, the one destined to win will throw doubles. you get the 3 lowest dice —– to start the game you have to click at least 7 times to shut down a lot of commercials. it’s incredible. if one wants to buy chips, one could do so at first advertising. but that is not enough. between each game, double-click to shut down a ridiculous commercial that you just shut down. Overall, I would give the game 2 out of 5 stars. i would give it one but get 2. if it was out of 10 stars i would also give it 2 stars. because it is rigged

  7. I have played Backgammon for 50 years. I have read books on the game & dice odds. The dice in Lord of the Board are manipulated so that the loser is given a chance during the game to catch up, given a chance to make the outcome more exciting, to promote a closer game & to encourage the potential loser to purchase more chips without feelings of inadequacy. How wonderful this game would be if dice manipulation is stopped.

  8. Like other backgammon games it is rigged so as a new player U win win win , then lose to the point where u need to buy more, which i will not, some of the dice roles r ridiculous ie 5/6 doubles in a row. I shall delete it.it is a pity as backgammon is a brilliant game ruined by greedy companies

  9. I HATE THIS GAME. It has (at least) two MAJOR flaws:

    1) Dice are rigged. I’ve played for over 4 decades, so I know a little about dice throws… I have lost dozens of games by being doubled out by 3-4 dbls IN A ROW for my adversary. It is SO FRUSTRATING to be 20, even 30 pips head, yet loose 4/5 games. Also, (dice-wise) I’ve tracked who starts each game: I’ve received the opening rool twice per Ten games, and when I do, it’s almost always 2-1, 5-1, etc. My opponents consistently toll 3-1, 6-6, 6-1 to open.

    2) Idiots who open by doubling the cube…I HATE THAT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Oh wait, I said 2…..

    3) The game allows those with little to no money to enter into a match with higher stakes: e.g. As I have accumulated close to 100K (which is can’t seem to get past…keep loosing), I play the 1000$ board. 3/4 times out of 10 someone with 150$, 0$, whatever is allowed to challenge me.. so these idiots have nothing to loose! Of course, mos of them immediately double. Do the math: if I win, I reap 1-200$, but they get my $2000 if they win..which they do a LOT.

    So, AVOID this one, it’s hands down the worst, most crooked game online.
