As we have dicussed in the previous article, Backgammon is a game of skill and luck. The goal is to shift your chips safely around the game board to your home board while at the same time your opponent moves their checkers toward their inner board in the opposite direction. With opposing player chips moving in opposite directions there is going to be conflict and the requirement for particular techniques at particular instances. Here are the last 2 Backgammon techniques to finish off your game.

The Priming Game Tactic

If the aim of the blocking tactic is to hamper the opponents ability to move their checkers, the Priming Game strategy is to absolutely block any movement of the opposing player by creating a prime – ideally 6 points in a row. The opponent’s pieces will either get hit, or end up in a battered position if he at all attempts to escape the wall. The ambush of the prime can be built anyplace between point two and point eleven in your half of the board. As soon as you have successfully assembled the prime to prevent the movement of the competitor, your competitor does not even get a chance to roll the dice, that means you move your pieces and toss the dice again. You’ll be a winner for sure.

The Back Game Tactic

The objectives of the Back Game plan and the Blocking Game strategy are very similar – to harm your competitor’s positions in hope to improve your chances of succeeding, however the Back Game strategy utilizes alternate techniques to achieve that. The Back Game tactic is often utilized when you are far behind your opponent. To play Backgammon with this technique, you need to hold two or more points in table, and to hit a blot late in the game. This technique is more complex than others to play in Backgammon because it needs careful movement of your pieces and how the checkers are relocated is partly the outcome of the dice roll.
