As we have dicussed in the last article, Backgammon is a casino game of ability and pure luck. The aim is to move your chips safely around the game board to your inside board while at the same time your opposition shifts their chips toward their inner board in the opposite direction. With competing player checkers heading in opposite directions there is going to be conflict and the need for specific techniques at particular instances. Here are the last 2 Backgammon tactics to round out your game.

The Priming Game Strategy

If the aim of the blocking plan is to slow down the opponent to shift his chips, the Priming Game plan is to completely block any activity of the opponent by creating a prime – ideally 6 points in a row. The opponent’s checkers will either get bumped, or result a damaged position if he ever tries to escape the wall. The trap of the prime can be established anyplace between point 2 and point eleven in your board. After you’ve successfully constructed the prime to block the activity of the competitor, the competitor doesn’t even get to roll the dice, and you move your chips and toss the dice again. You will be a winner for sure.

The Back Game Strategy

The objectives of the Back Game tactic and the Blocking Game plan are similar – to hinder your opponent’s positions with hope to boost your chances of succeeding, but the Back Game technique uses alternate techniques to do that. The Back Game tactic is commonly used when you are far behind your opponent. To compete in Backgammon with this tactic, you need to hold two or more points in table, and to hit a blot (a single piece) late in the game. This tactic is more difficult than others to employ in Backgammon because it requires careful movement of your pieces and how the pieces are relocated is partly the result of the dice roll.
