As we dicussed in the last article, Backgammon is a casino game of ability and good luck. The goal is to shift your pieces carefully around the game board to your inner board and at the same time your opposition shifts their pieces toward their home board in the opposing direction. With opposing player pieces shifting in opposite directions there is bound to be conflict and the need for particular tactics at particular instances. Here are the 2 final Backgammon strategies to complete your game.

The Priming Game Tactic

If the aim of the blocking tactic is to slow down the opponent to move his pieces, the Priming Game tactic is to absolutely barricade any activity of the opponent by constructing a prime – ideally 6 points in a row. The competitor’s pieces will either get bumped, or result a bad position if he at all attempts to leave the wall. The ambush of the prime can be established anywhere between point two and point eleven in your board. After you have successfully assembled the prime to stop the movement of the opponent, the opponent does not even get a chance to toss the dice, that means you shift your chips and toss the dice yet again. You will win the game for sure.

The Back Game Technique

The goals of the Back Game strategy and the Blocking Game strategy are similar – to hurt your competitor’s positions in hope to better your chances of succeeding, but the Back Game plan relies on seperate tactics to do that. The Back Game tactic is generally employed when you are far behind your competitor. To compete in Backgammon with this technique, you have to hold 2 or more points in table, and to hit a blot late in the game. This tactic is more challenging than others to play in Backgammon because it requires careful movement of your chips and how the pieces are relocated is partly the outcome of the dice toss.
