June 1st, 2021 by Princess

As we dicussed in the last article, Backgammon is a game of talent and luck. The goal is to shift your pieces carefully around the board to your inner board and at the same time your opposing player shifts their chips toward their inside board in the opposing direction. With opposing player chips shifting in opposing directions there is bound to be conflict and the requirement for specific strategies at particular times. Here are the two final Backgammon tactics to complete your game.

The Priming Game Strategy

If the goal of the blocking tactic is to hamper the opponents ability to shift her pieces, the Priming Game plan is to completely block any activity of the opponent by creating 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/she at all attempts to leave the wall. The trap of the prime can be established anyplace between point two and point eleven in your half of the board. Once you have successfully constructed the prime to stop the movement of the competitor, your competitor does not even get a chance to toss the dice, and you shift your chips and roll the dice again. You’ll be a winner for sure.

The Back Game Technique

The objectives of the Back Game strategy and the Blocking Game tactic are similar – to hurt your competitor’s positions in hope to boost your chances of winning, but the Back Game tactic uses alternate tactics to achieve that. The Back Game technique is often utilized when you are far behind your opponent. To play Backgammon with this strategy, you need to hold 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 seeing as it requires careful movement of your checkers and how the chips are relocated is partly the result of the dice toss.
