The Essential Basics of Backgammon Game Plans – Part Two
April 22nd, 2019 by Princess

As we have dicussed in the previous article, Backgammon is a casino game of skill and good luck. The goal is to move your chips carefully around the game board to your home board while at the same time your opponent moves their chips toward their inside board in the opposite direction. With opposing player chips moving in opposing directions there is bound to be conflict and the requirement for specific tactics at specific instances. Here are the last two Backgammon techniques to complete your game.

The Priming Game Strategy

If the goal of the blocking strategy is to hamper the opponents ability to shift their chips, the Priming Game strategy is to completely barricade any movement of the opposing player by creating a prime – ideally 6 points in a row. The opponent’s pieces 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 setup anywhere between point two and point eleven in your board. After you’ve successfully built the prime to block the activity of the competitor, the opponent doesn’t even get to roll the dice, and you move your pieces and roll the dice yet again. You’ll win the game for sure.

The Back Game Strategy

The objectives of the Back Game tactic and the Blocking Game tactic are very similar – to hurt your competitor’s positions hoping to improve your chances of succeeding, but the Back Game plan uses seperate tactics to do that. The Back Game technique is commonly used when you’re far behind your opponent. To play Backgammon with this plan, you have to control two or more points in table, and to hit a blot (a single piece) late in the game. This technique is more challenging than others to use in Backgammon seeing as it needs careful movement of your checkers and how the pieces are moved is partly the result of the dice toss.
