The Essential Details of Backgammon Tactics – Part Two
April 24th, 2021 by Princess

As we dicussed in the last article, Backgammon is a casino game of skill and luck. The goal is to move your chips carefully around the board to your inner board and at the same time your opposition shifts their checkers toward their inside board in the opposing direction. With competing player pieces shifting in opposite directions there is bound to be conflict and the need for particular strategies at specific times. Here are the last two Backgammon tactics to finish off your game.

The Priming Game Plan

If the purpose of the blocking strategy is to hamper the opponents ability to shift her chips, the Priming Game strategy is to completely stop any movement of the opponent by creating a prime – ideally 6 points in a row. The opponent’s chips will either get hit, or result a damaged position if he at all attempts to leave the wall. The ambush of the prime can be setup anywhere between point two and point eleven in your board. As soon as you have successfully constructed the prime to stop the activity of your opponent, the competitor doesn’t even get to roll the dice, and you shift your chips and roll the dice again. You’ll be a winner for sure.

The Back Game Plan

The goals of the Back Game tactic and the Blocking Game tactic are very similar – to hurt your opponent’s positions hoping to better your chances of winning, but the Back Game tactic relies on alternate tactics to achieve that. The Back Game technique is frequently utilized when you’re far behind your opponent. To play Backgammon with this plan, you have to hold 2 or more points in table, and to hit a blot (a single piece) late in the game. This plan is more difficult than others to employ in Backgammon because it needs careful movement of your checkers and how the pieces are relocated is partially the result of the dice toss.
