As we have dicussed in the previous article, Backgammon is a game of talent and luck. The aim is to shift your pieces carefully around the game board to your inner board while at the same time your opposition shifts their chips toward their inner board in the opposing direction. With competing player chips heading in opposing directions there is going to be conflict and the requirement for particular techniques at particular instances. Here are the last two Backgammon techniques to finish off your game.

The Priming Game Tactic

If the goal of the blocking tactic is to slow down the opponent to shift his pieces, 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 chips will either get bumped, or end up in a battered position if he at all attempts to escape the wall. The trap of the prime can be built anyplace between point 2 and point eleven in your half of the board. As soon as you’ve successfully constructed the prime to block the movement of the competitor, the competitor doesn’t even get a chance to roll the dice, and you shift your chips and toss the dice yet again. You’ll win the game for sure.

The Back Game Strategy

The aims of the Back Game tactic and the Blocking Game tactic are similar – to harm your competitor’s positions in hope to improve your odds of succeeding, but the Back Game plan uses seperate tactics to achieve that. The Back Game plan is often employed when you are far behind your competitor. To play Backgammon with this tactic, you have 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 chips and how the chips are moved is partly the outcome of the dice toss.
