September 25th, 2017 by Princess

As we have dicussed in the last article, Backgammon is a game of skill and good luck. The aim is to shift your pieces safely around the board to your home board and at the same time your opposing player moves their checkers toward their home board in the opposing direction. With opposing player chips moving in opposing directions there is bound to be conflict and the requirement for particular techniques at specific times. Here are the last 2 Backgammon tactics to complete your game.

The Priming Game Strategy

If the goal of the blocking tactic is to hamper the opponents ability to shift her pieces, the Priming Game tactic is to absolutely stop 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 bad position if he at all tries to leave the wall. The trap of the prime can be established anyplace between point two and point 11 in your board. Once you have successfully assembled the prime to stop the activity of the opponent, the opponent doesn’t even get to toss the dice, that means you shift your checkers and toss the dice yet again. You’ll win the game for sure.

The Back Game Tactic

The goals of the Back Game plan and the Blocking Game technique are very similar – to hinder your competitor’s positions with hope to boost your odds of winning, however the Back Game tactic relies on different tactics to achieve that. The Back Game strategy is frequently employed when you are far behind your opponent. To compete in Backgammon with this strategy, you have to control 2 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 seeing as it requires careful movement of your chips and how the checkers are moved is partly the outcome of the dice toss.
