    Become a Blitz master

    Student? Veteran? Whatever your level, Backgammon Blitz is both a faithful adaptation of the classic board game and an updated tactical battle.

    Race against a rival player to clear the board of your own checkers first, and then tackle the arcade-style Blitz mode for the chance to really show off your skill. And, thanks to Cross-Play, you can even take on PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita players, too.

    An accomplished adaptation of one of history's most timeless board games, Backgammon Blitz just falls short of being the definitive version of the game on account of its lack of cross-save functionality and redundant Blitz mode.

    I signed up for a metacritic account just to warn people to stay away from this pathetic version of backgammon. The AI is so bad even onI signed up for a metacritic account just to warn people to stay away from this pathetic version of backgammon. The AI is so bad even on expert and unless you really luck out then you will win everytime. When you roll the dice it selects the piece you don't want to use then when you finally pick the correct nip will select a place to move not even the worst noob would move to. Multiplayer seems to be invite only so if you have no friends to play with you will have to spam people on the leaderboards to get a game. I regret buying this game and wish I stuck to playing on my web browser instead Expand
