As we have dicussed in the previous article, Backgammon is a game of talent and pure luck. The aim is to move your checkers safely around the board to your inside board and at the same time your opposing player moves their chips toward their home 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 specific instances. Here are the 2 final Backgammon techniques to round out your game.

The Priming Game Tactic

If the purpose of the blocking plan is to slow down the opponent to shift his pieces, the Priming Game plan is to completely barricade any activity of the opposing player by assembling a prime – ideally 6 points in a row. The opponent’s pieces will either get bumped, or result a battered position if he/she ever tries to escape the wall. The ambush of the prime can be setup anyplace between point 2 and point eleven in your half of the board. Once you’ve successfully constructed the prime to block the movement of the competitor, the opponent doesn’t even get a chance to roll the dice, that means you move your chips and roll the dice yet again. You will win the game for sure.

The Back Game Tactic

The goals of the Back Game plan and the Blocking Game strategy are similar – to harm your opponent’s positions with hope to improve your chances of succeeding, however the Back Game strategy relies on different tactics to achieve that. The Back Game strategy is generally utilized when you’re far behind your competitor. To play Backgammon with this technique, you have to control 2 or more points in table, and to hit a blot late in the game. This strategy is more challenging than others to employ in Backgammon because it needs careful movement of your pieces and how the checkers are relocated is partially the result of the dice toss.
