As we dicussed in the previous article, Backgammon is a casino game of skill and good luck. The goal is to move your checkers safely around the board to your inner board while at the same time your opposing player moves their chips toward their home board in the opposite direction. With opposing player checkers shifting in opposite directions there is bound to be conflict and the requirement for specific tactics at specific instances. Here are the last two 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 shift their pieces, the Priming Game plan is to completely block any movement of the opposing player by creating a prime – ideally 6 points in a row. The opponent’s checkers will either get bumped, or end up in a battered position if she ever tries to leave the wall. The ambush of the prime can be built anyplace between point 2 and point eleven in your game board. As soon as you have successfully built the prime to stop the activity of your opponent, the competitor does not even get a chance to toss the dice, that means you move your pieces and toss the dice yet again. You’ll win the game for sure.

The Back Game Tactic

The objectives of the Back Game tactic and the Blocking Game plan are very similar – to hurt your competitor’s positions hoping to better your odds of succeeding, however the Back Game strategy utilizes different tactics to do that. The Back Game plan is commonly employed when you are far behind your competitor. To participate in Backgammon with this tactic, you need to control 2 or more points in table, and to hit a blot (a single piece) late in the game. This technique is more challenging than others to play in Backgammon because it requires careful movement of your pieces and how the chips are moved is partially the outcome of the dice roll.
