As we have dicussed in the previous article, Backgammon is a game of talent and good luck. The goal is to move your checkers safely around the game board to your inside board and at the same time your opposition moves their chips toward their inside board in the opposing direction. With competing player chips heading in opposing directions there is going to be conflict and the need for particular tactics at specific instances. Here are the 2 final Backgammon strategies to complete your game.

The Priming Game Plan

If the goal of the blocking plan is to hamper the opponents ability to shift her checkers, the Priming Game strategy is to completely barricade any activity of the opposing player by constructing a prime – ideally 6 points in a row. The competitor’s chips will either get bumped, or result a damaged position if she ever tries to escape the wall. The ambush of the prime can be established anyplace between point 2 and point eleven in your half of the board. Once you have successfully constructed the prime to prevent the movement of the opponent, the opponent doesn’t even get to toss the dice, and you shift your checkers and roll the dice again. You’ll be a winner for sure.

The Back Game Technique

The aims of the Back Game strategy and the Blocking Game strategy are very similar – to harm your competitor’s positions with hope to improve your odds of succeeding, however the Back Game tactic relies on alternate techniques to achieve that. The Back Game plan is generally used when you are far behind your competitor. To play Backgammon with this tactic, you have to control 2 or more points in table, and to hit a blot late in the game. This plan is more difficult than others to employ in Backgammon seeing as it needs careful movement of your checkers and how the checkers are relocated is partly the result of the dice toss.
