The Essential Basics of Backgammon Game Plans – Part Two
December 3rd, 2022 by Princess

As we dicussed in the previous article, Backgammon is a casino game of ability and pure luck. The goal is to move your chips carefully around the board to your inside board and at the same time your opposing player moves their pieces toward their inner board in the opposing direction. With competing player chips moving in opposing directions there is going to be conflict and the requirement for specific techniques at particular times. Here are the last 2 Backgammon plans to round out your game.

The Priming Game Tactic

If the purpose of the blocking strategy is to hamper the opponents ability to move their pieces, the Priming Game plan is to absolutely stop any movement of the opposing player by building a prime – ideally 6 points in a row. The opponent’s pieces will either get bumped, or end up in a battered position if he ever attempts to escape the wall. The trap of the prime can be established anywhere between point two and point 11 in your board. After you have successfully constructed the prime to stop the movement of your opponent, the competitor does not even get a chance to toss the dice, and you move your checkers and toss the dice again. You’ll be a winner for sure.

The Back Game Strategy

The goals of the Back Game strategy and the Blocking Game strategy are very similar – to harm your competitor’s positions with hope to boost your odds of winning, but the Back Game strategy uses seperate techniques to achieve that. The Back Game tactic is commonly employed when you’re far behind your opponent. To participate in Backgammon with this plan, you have to hold two or more points in table, and to hit a blot late in the game. This strategy is more challenging than others to play in Backgammon because it requires careful movement of your pieces and how the checkers are relocated is partly the result of the dice toss.
