March 16th, 2024 by Princess

As we dicussed in the previous article, Backgammon is a casino game of skill and good luck. The aim is to move your pieces safely around the game board to your inside board and at the same time your opponent moves their chips toward their home board in the opposing direction. With competing player pieces heading in opposite directions there is bound to be conflict and the requirement for particular strategies at particular instances. Here are the two final Backgammon plans to finish off your game.

The Priming Game Plan

If the purpose of the blocking plan is to hamper the opponents ability to move her chips, the Priming Game strategy is to completely block any movement of the opposing player by constructing a prime – ideally 6 points in a row. The competitor’s chips will either get hit, or result a battered position if he at all tries to leave the wall. The trap of the prime can be built anyplace between point two and point 11 in your board. As soon as you’ve successfully built the prime to stop the activity of your competitor, your opponent does not even get to toss the dice, that means you shift your pieces and toss the dice yet again. You’ll be a winner for sure.

The Back Game Tactic

The objectives of the Back Game plan and the Blocking Game strategy are very similar – to hinder your competitor’s positions with hope to boost your chances of winning, however the Back Game technique relies on alternate tactics to achieve that. The Back Game strategy is often used when you are far behind your competitor. To participate in Backgammon with this strategy, you need to control 2 or more points in table, and to hit a blot (a single piece) late in the game. This plan is more difficult than others to employ in Backgammon because it needs careful movement of your chips and how the checkers are relocated is partially the result of the dice toss.
