Backgammon PlayGem HD for iPhone & iPad

By  | 

Backgammon is one of the most addictive board games around. Unlike a few other board games, backgammon is easy to pick up but can be challenging to master. There are plenty of backgammon apps that let you play against a computer. Backgammon PlayGem HD happens to be a fun application that allows you to play against your friends online (Facebook). The game combines decent graphics with social play to keep you entertained.

We found the game to be easy to get started with. You can login with Facebook but also have the option to play as a guest. The app allows you to join a room and start playing against random players. We liked the fact that our first try was on the house, and we didn’t lose anything after making mistakes. The game has 7 boards for you to try (with their own theme and music).


Backgammon PlayGem HD lets you battle decent players in no time. As you play and win, you get to unlock achievements, and climb the leader boards. The game is available for free but you have the option to buy chips. I do encourage you to get a good understanding of what backgammon is all about before burning chips trying to learn.

Backgammon PlayGem HD was stable and responsive. We didn’t have to do a whole lot to get started. This is a universal app and looks good on iPhone and iPad.
