The Basics of Backgammon Strategies – Part Two
December 16th, 2016 by Princess

As we have dicussed in the previous article, Backgammon is a casino game of ability and good luck. The aim is to move your pieces safely around the board to your home board while at the same time your opposing player moves their chips toward their inside board in the opposing direction. With competing player checkers moving in opposite directions there is bound to be conflict and the requirement for particular strategies at specific instances. Here are the last 2 Backgammon strategies to finish off your game.

The Priming Game Strategy

If the goal of the blocking strategy is to slow down the opponent to move their pieces, the Priming Game strategy is to absolutely block any movement of the opposing player by assembling a prime – ideally 6 points in a row. The opponent’s pieces will either get bumped, or result a battered position if he/she ever attempts to escape the wall. The ambush of the prime can be established anyplace between point 2 and point eleven in your half of the board. As soon as you’ve successfully assembled the prime to prevent the movement of your opponent, your competitor does not even get to toss the dice, and you move your pieces and toss the dice again. You will win the game for sure.

The Back Game Plan

The objectives of the Back Game strategy and the Blocking Game plan are similar – to harm your opponent’s positions with hope to better your odds of succeeding, but the Back Game tactic relies on different tactics to do that. The Back Game plan is generally used when you are far behind your opponent. To participate in Backgammon with this plan, you need to hold two or more points in table, and to hit a blot late in the game. This tactic is more challenging than others to employ in Backgammon because it requires careful movement of your pieces and how the pieces are relocated is partly the outcome of the dice roll.
