Let me tell you something Mr. Kiture. "Hard" doesn't mean CHEATS to compensate for bad strategy. It means plays competently. That means the computer doesn't generate dice rolls that are beneficial to itself while deliberately playing badly and it doesn't mean skipping past barriers of my pieces as seen HERE:

Frigging cheater gave itself doubles practically every roll on top of that! And for 5 rolls in a row, with the 2, 3 and 5 columns blocked up, it gave me dice rolls comprised of 2, 3 and 5 only. The odds of that are 1 in 1024. Meanwhile when I've got all but 1 column blocked off, you can be sure the computer will give itself whatever it needs right away. Like in the first game I had the 1, 2, 3, 4 and 6 blocked off and it IMMEDIATELY gave itself double 5's. I call bullshit. And then to REALLY troll me, it played badly when it came to the actual strategy - SO badly it simply HAD to be deliberate in the programming. When it got down to the nitties and the gritties, at the very end, it was giving itself double 1's and 2's over and over again to get its pieces off the board - did it actually UTILIZE those rolls properly? Nope. It had a bunch of pieces 1 and 2 spaces away, and did it move THOSE off the board? Hell no, it moved the pieces that were 3 and 4 and 5 spaces away CLOSER to the end instead. No doubt sympathy, for having CHEATED so much earlier. I feel the computer's telling me "you suck so bad I'll deliberately suck even harder, just to show you that's the only reason you won this game".

ALSO, you do NOT get to mandate the order I use the dice values at the end. To add further insult, I had a piece that was 2 away and a piece that was 4 away, and I rolled a 5 and a 3. Guess what it did. Did it let me use the 3 to move the one that was 2 away and the the 5 to move the one that was 4 away, to win the rotten game, the way it should have? NO! It made me use the 3 on the 4, putting it 1 away, and then the 5 on the 2, thus stalling me for an extra move at the end. More CHEATING! It's even more aggravating than the rotten backgammon program on yahoo games.

This is not my idea of a grand old time, folks.

Classic and simple. But I think, that after that moment in game that you can't longer harm each other, enemy should change strategy and forget about making walls - change his priority to get all marbles home as quick as possible. Also, I think that there should be some noise for that moment. Like a gong or something. Then the experience would be full. I like many versions of this game. This one is pretty fine.

It was perfect before, its perfect now

You took one of the most popular boardgames and made perfection out of it.
