As we dicussed in the last article, Backgammon is a casino game of talent and pure luck. The goal is to shift your pieces safely around the board to your inner board while at the same time your opposing player moves their pieces toward their home board in the opposing direction. With competing player checkers heading in opposing directions there is bound to be conflict and the requirement for particular tactics at particular times. Here are the last 2 Backgammon strategies to round out your game.

The Priming Game Strategy

If the goal of the blocking tactic is to slow down the opponent to shift her pieces, the Priming Game strategy is to completely block 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 end up in a damaged position if he at all tries to escape the wall. The ambush of the prime can be established anywhere between point 2 and point 11 in your game board. Once you’ve successfully constructed the prime to block the movement of your opponent, your competitor doesn’t even get a chance to toss the dice, that means you move your chips and roll the dice yet again. You’ll win the game for sure.

The Back Game Plan

The objectives of the Back Game technique and the Blocking Game plan are similar – to harm your competitor’s positions in hope to boost your chances of winning, however the Back Game technique uses seperate techniques to achieve that. The Back Game tactic is often used when you are far behind your opponent. To play Backgammon with this technique, you need to hold 2 or more points in table, and to hit a blot late in the game. This technique is more difficult than others to employ in Backgammon because it requires careful movement of your chips and how the chips are relocated is partially the outcome of the dice roll.
