As we dicussed in the last article, Backgammon is a casino game of skill and good luck. The aim is to shift your pieces carefully around the board to your inside board and at the same time your opponent shifts their chips toward their home board in the opposing direction. With competing player checkers heading in opposing directions there is going to be conflict and the need for particular techniques at specific times. Here are the last 2 Backgammon techniques to round out your game.

The Priming Game Tactic

If the aim of the blocking plan is to hamper the opponents ability to shift her checkers, the Priming Game tactic is to absolutely stop any activity of the opposing player by constructing a prime – ideally 6 points in a row. The competitor’s pieces will either get hit, or result a damaged position if he/she ever attempts to escape the wall. The trap of the prime can be established anyplace between point 2 and point eleven in your game board. After you’ve successfully assembled the prime to stop the movement of your competitor, your competitor doesn’t even get a chance to roll the dice, and you move your pieces and toss the dice yet again. You will win the game for sure.

The Back Game Technique

The objectives of the Back Game technique and the Blocking Game plan are similar – to hinder your competitor’s positions in hope to boost your odds of winning, however the Back Game tactic relies on different tactics to do that. The Back Game strategy is often employed when you’re far behind your opponent. To compete in Backgammon with this technique, you have to hold two or more points in table, and to hit a blot (a single piece) late in the game. This tactic is more complex than others to use in Backgammon seeing as it needs careful movement of your chips and how the chips are relocated is partly the result of the dice roll.
