As we dicussed in the last article, Backgammon is a casino game of ability and good luck. The aim is to shift your checkers safely around the board to your inside board and at the same time your opponent moves their checkers toward their inside board in the opposing direction. With opposing player pieces shifting in opposing directions there is bound to be conflict and the requirement for specific techniques at specific instances. Here are the two final Backgammon tactics to finish off your game.

The Priming Game Strategy

If the aim of the blocking strategy is to hamper the opponents ability to move their chips, the Priming Game plan is to absolutely barricade any activity of the opponent by assembling a prime – ideally 6 points in a row. The competitor’s pieces will either get bumped, or result a bad position if she at all attempts to leave the wall. The ambush of the prime can be setup anywhere between point 2 and point eleven in your board. After you’ve successfully constructed the prime to prevent the activity of the competitor, the competitor does not even get a chance to toss the dice, and you shift your checkers and roll the dice again. You will be a winner for sure.

The Back Game Technique

The goals of the Back Game strategy and the Blocking Game plan are very similar – to hinder your competitor’s positions hoping to boost your chances of winning, however the Back Game technique uses different techniques to do that. The Back Game tactic is commonly used when you’re far behind your competitor. To compete in Backgammon with this plan, you have to hold two or more points in table, and to hit a blot (a single checker) late in the game. This strategy is more challenging than others to play in Backgammon because it requires careful movement of your checkers and how the pieces are moved is partially the outcome of the dice toss.
