As we have dicussed in the last article, Backgammon is a casino game of talent and pure luck. The aim is to move your chips carefully around the board to your inner board and at the same time your opposition moves their chips toward their inner board in the opposite direction. With opposing player checkers moving in opposite directions there is bound to be conflict and the need for particular strategies at specific times. Here are the two final Backgammon tactics to round out your game.

The Priming Game Strategy

If the goal of the blocking strategy is to hamper the opponents ability to shift her pieces, the Priming Game plan is to absolutely barricade any activity of the opposing player by assembling a prime – ideally 6 points in a row. The opponent’s pieces will either get hit, or result a battered 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 game board. After you’ve successfully assembled the prime to block the activity of the competitor, your opponent doesn’t even get a chance to roll the dice, that means you shift your pieces and roll the dice yet again. You’ll be a winner for sure.

The Back Game Technique

The aims of the Back Game technique and the Blocking Game strategy are similar – to harm your competitor’s positions hoping to boost your chances of winning, but the Back Game tactic utilizes alternate techniques to achieve that. The Back Game strategy is frequently used when you are far behind your opponent. 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 strategy is more challenging than others to use in Backgammon because it needs careful movement of your chips and how the pieces are moved is partly the outcome of the dice toss.
