As we dicussed in the last article, Backgammon is a game of talent and pure luck. The aim is to move your pieces carefully around the game board to your inner board while at the same time your opposition shifts their chips toward their inside board in the opposite direction. With opposing player pieces moving in opposing directions there is bound to be conflict and the need for specific techniques at specific instances. Here are the 2 final Backgammon techniques to complete your game.

The Priming Game Plan

If the goal of the blocking strategy is to slow down the opponent to move their chips, the Priming Game strategy is to completely barricade any movement of the opponent by assembling a prime – ideally 6 points in a row. The competitor’s pieces will either get hit, or result a battered position if he at all tries to leave the wall. The ambush of the prime can be setup anyplace between point 2 and point eleven in your half of the board. As soon as you’ve successfully built the prime to block the activity of your competitor, your opponent does not even get a chance to toss the dice, and you shift your checkers and toss the dice yet again. You’ll win the game for sure.

The Back Game Tactic

The objectives of the Back Game strategy and the Blocking Game technique are similar – to hinder your opponent’s positions hoping to better your chances of succeeding, but the Back Game tactic relies on seperate techniques to do that. The Back Game strategy is commonly employed when you’re far behind your competitor. To play Backgammon with this tactic, you need to hold 2 or more points in table, and to hit a blot late in the game. This tactic is more difficult than others to play in Backgammon seeing as it requires careful movement of your pieces and how the pieces are relocated is partially the result of the dice toss.
