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 opposition shifts their pieces toward their inner board in the opposing direction. With opposing player checkers heading in opposing directions there is bound to be conflict and the need for specific techniques at specific times. Here are the 2 final Backgammon techniques to round out your game.

The Priming Game Tactic

If the purpose of the blocking tactic is to hamper the opponents ability to shift their checkers, the Priming Game tactic is to completely block any movement of the opposing player by building a prime – ideally 6 points in a row. The competitor’s checkers will either get bumped, or result a bad position if he/she ever attempts to escape the wall. The trap of the prime can be established anywhere between point 2 and point eleven in your half of the board. Once you have successfully built the prime to prevent the movement of your competitor, the competitor doesn’t even get to toss the dice, that means you move your checkers and toss the dice again. You’ll be a winner for sure.

The Back Game Technique

The aims of the Back Game plan and the Blocking Game strategy are similar – to harm your opponent’s positions with hope to boost your odds of winning, but the Back Game technique relies on alternate techniques to do that. The Back Game strategy is often utilized when you are far behind your competitor. To compete in Backgammon with this plan, you need to control 2 or more points in table, and to hit a blot late in the game. This tactic is more challenging than others to use in Backgammon because it needs careful movement of your pieces and how the chips are moved is partly the outcome of the dice roll.
