The Essential Facts of Backgammon Tactics – Part Two
January 8th, 2016 by Princess

As we have dicussed in the last article, Backgammon is a casino game of skill and luck. The aim is to shift your chips safely around the game board to your inner board and at the same time your opponent shifts their checkers toward their inside board in the opposite direction. With opposing player pieces moving in opposite directions there is going to be conflict and the need for particular techniques at specific instances. Here are the last 2 Backgammon plans to complete your game.

The Priming Game Tactic

If the purpose of the blocking strategy is to slow down the opponent to shift her pieces, the Priming Game tactic is to completely block any activity of the opposing player 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 at all attempts to leave the wall. The ambush of the prime can be setup anywhere between point two and point 11 in your board. As soon as you have successfully assembled the prime to block the movement of the opponent, the opponent does not even get to toss the dice, that means you move your chips and roll the dice again. You will be a winner for sure.

The Back Game Tactic

The aims of the Back Game technique and the Blocking Game technique are similar – to hinder your competitor’s positions hoping to better your odds of winning, but the Back Game technique uses alternate techniques to achieve that. The Back Game strategy is frequently used when you are far behind your competitor. To play Backgammon with this technique, you need to hold 2 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 needs careful movement of your chips and how the pieces are moved is partially the outcome of the dice roll.
