The Essential Facts of Backgammon Game Plans – Part Two
July 1st, 2018 by Princess

As we have dicussed in the previous article, Backgammon is a casino game of skill and pure luck. The goal is to shift your chips safely around the board to your inside board and at the same time your opponent shifts their checkers toward their home board in the opposite direction. With competing player chips moving in opposing directions there is bound to be conflict and the need for specific techniques at particular instances. Here are the 2 final Backgammon strategies to round out your game.

The Priming Game Plan

If the purpose of the blocking tactic is to slow down the opponent to move his chips, the Priming Game tactic is to completely block any movement of the opponent by creating a prime – ideally 6 points in a row. The opponent’s chips will either get bumped, or result a battered position if she at all attempts to escape the wall. The ambush of the prime can be established anywhere between point two and point 11 in your game board. Once you have successfully assembled the prime to stop the movement of the competitor, the competitor doesn’t even get to roll the dice, and you shift your pieces and roll the dice again. You will win the game for sure.

The Back Game Plan

The goals of the Back Game strategy and the Blocking Game plan are similar – to harm your competitor’s positions hoping to boost your odds of succeeding, however the Back Game plan uses seperate techniques to do that. The Back Game plan is commonly employed when you are far behind your competitor. To compete in Backgammon with this strategy, you need to control 2 or more points in table, and to hit a blot late in the game. This plan is more challenging than others to play in Backgammon because it requires careful movement of your chips and how the checkers are moved is partly the outcome of the dice toss.
