As we have dicussed in the previous article, Backgammon is a casino game of skill and good luck. The goal is to move your checkers safely around the board to your inner board while at the same time your opposition moves their checkers toward their inside board in the opposite direction. With opposing player pieces heading in opposing directions there is bound to be conflict and the need for particular tactics at particular times. Here are the 2 final Backgammon techniques to round out your game.

The Priming Game Strategy

If the purpose of the blocking plan is to slow down the opponent to shift his checkers, the Priming Game strategy is to absolutely stop any activity of the opponent by building a prime – ideally 6 points in a row. The opponent’s pieces will either get hit, or result a battered position if he/she ever tries to escape the wall. The ambush of the prime can be established anywhere between point two and point 11 in your half of the board. As soon as you have successfully assembled the prime to stop the activity of the competitor, your competitor does not even get a chance to roll the dice, that means you move your checkers and roll the dice yet again. You’ll be a winner for sure.

The Back Game Plan

The objectives of the Back Game tactic and the Blocking Game plan are similar – to hurt your competitor’s positions hoping to boost your odds of winning, but the Back Game plan relies on different tactics to achieve that. The Back Game tactic is generally utilized when you are far behind your opponent. To play Backgammon with this plan, you need to control 2 or more points in table, and to hit a blot (a single checker) late in the game. This tactic is more challenging than others to use in Backgammon seeing as it requires careful movement of your chips and how the pieces are moved is partially the outcome of the dice toss.
