The Basics of Backgammon Tactics – Part 2
April 11th, 2021 by Princess

As we dicussed in the last article, Backgammon is a casino game of ability and good luck. The goal is to shift your checkers carefully around the game board to your inner board while at the same time your opponent shifts their pieces toward their inner board in the opposing direction. With opposing player chips moving in opposing directions there is going to be conflict and the requirement for particular techniques at particular instances. Here are the last two Backgammon plans to round out your game.

The Priming Game Tactic

If the aim of the blocking tactic is to slow down the opponent to shift her chips, the Priming Game tactic is to completely stop any activity of the opponent by constructing a prime – ideally 6 points in a row. The opponent’s checkers will either get bumped, or end up in a damaged position if he at all attempts to leave the wall. The ambush of the prime can be built anywhere between point 2 and point eleven in your board. As soon as you’ve successfully built the prime to block the activity of the opponent, the competitor doesn’t even get to roll the dice, and you shift your chips and toss the dice yet again. You will be a winner for sure.

The Back Game Tactic

The goals of the Back Game tactic and the Blocking Game tactic are similar – to hurt your opponent’s positions in hope to improve your chances of succeeding, but the Back Game technique uses alternate tactics to do that. The Back Game plan is commonly utilized when you’re far behind your opponent. To play Backgammon with this strategy, you need 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 use in Backgammon seeing as it needs careful movement of your checkers and how the pieces are relocated is partly the result of the dice toss.
