February 1st, 2024 by Princess

As we have dicussed in the last article, Backgammon is a casino game of ability and luck. The aim is to shift your pieces carefully around the board to your inside board and at the same time your opposition shifts their checkers toward their home board in the opposite direction. With competing player pieces moving in opposite directions there is bound to be conflict and the need for specific tactics at specific times. Here are the last 2 Backgammon strategies to round out your game.

The Priming Game Plan

If the purpose of the blocking strategy is to slow down the opponent to move his pieces, the Priming Game plan is to absolutely block any activity of the opposing player by building a prime – ideally 6 points in a row. The opponent’s checkers will either get hit, or end up in a damaged position if she ever attempts to escape the wall. The trap of the prime can be established anywhere between point 2 and point eleven in your half of the board. As soon as you have successfully assembled the prime to block the movement of the opponent, your competitor doesn’t even get a chance to toss the dice, that means you shift your chips and roll the dice yet again. You’ll win the game for sure.

The Back Game Plan

The goals of the Back Game technique and the Blocking Game technique are similar – to harm your opponent’s positions with hope to better your odds of succeeding, but the Back Game tactic utilizes seperate techniques to achieve that. The Back Game plan is generally utilized when you are far behind your competitor. To compete in Backgammon with this plan, you have to control 2 or more points in table, and to hit a blot late in the game. This technique is more challenging than others to employ in Backgammon because it needs careful movement of your chips and how the chips are moved is partly the outcome of the dice toss.
