SimplyBG.com uses Web-services provided by www.2IBS.com for complete game match and tournament play management. All dice rolls are produced by www.Random.Org. Board display, animations, play and player interaction management uses built-in browser technologies.
The design of the platform is one that considers all potential instabilities computers, Internet and technology in general may have. With that consideration, SimplyBG.com and 2IBS.com are solid-state in that these systems guarantee play management, dice roll management, game rules management, and player turn management flawlessly.
In addition to using www.Random.Org for dice rolls, a queue management system ensures the distribution of the rolls are never duplicated or missed. As well, an early detection system is in place to detect any failures before game play is effected.
Game states are maintained and locked-in at the moment a player performs a roll, a move, a double challenge or offers a resign. Once an action is taken in a game, it is committed and safe.
