As we have dicussed in the previous article, Backgammon is a casino game of ability and pure luck. The aim is to shift your pieces carefully around the game board to your inside board and at the same time your opposition shifts their pieces toward their home board in the opposing direction. With opposing player pieces moving in opposing directions there is going to be conflict and the requirement for specific tactics at particular instances. Here are the 2 final Backgammon techniques to round out your game.

The Priming Game Strategy

If the goal of the blocking tactic is to slow down the opponent to move her chips, the Priming Game strategy is to absolutely stop any activity of the opponent by creating a prime – ideally 6 points in a row. The opponent’s pieces will either get bumped, or end up in a bad position if he/she ever attempts to leave the wall. The ambush of the prime can be setup anyplace between point two and point 11 in your game board. As soon as you have successfully constructed the prime to prevent the activity of the opponent, the opponent does not even get a chance to toss the dice, that means you shift your chips and roll the dice yet again. You will win the game for sure.

The Back Game Strategy

The objectives of the Back Game strategy and the Blocking Game technique are similar – to hinder your competitor’s positions in hope to better your chances of succeeding, but the Back Game strategy relies on alternate tactics to do that. The Back Game tactic is generally utilized when you are far behind your opponent. To play Backgammon with this technique, you need to hold two or more points in table, and to hit a blot (a single checker) late in the game. This plan is more complex than others to play in Backgammon because it requires careful movement of your chips and how the checkers are moved is partially the result of the dice roll.
