    "Backgammon live is a complete scam, it's rigged to soak coins (which you buy for real $) off of players. Avoid. I was playing on Facebook, which automatically links to your paypal or credit card. Often my opponents would roll doubles 10 times in a game, or three in a row, or I'd lose 20 games in a row. Avoid!"

    "A very simple game site to play with others. The graphics are primitive and it's very much a no frills experience, but it does the job it promises to do, so no real complaints. There's plenty of opponents, usually, so worth a look. "
