The Essential Basics of Backgammon Strategies – Part 2
May 4th, 2024 by Princess

As we have dicussed in the previous article, Backgammon is a game of talent and pure luck. The aim is to shift your checkers carefully around the board to your home board while at the same time your opposing player shifts their pieces toward their inside board in the opposite direction. With opposing player checkers shifting in opposing directions there is bound to be conflict and the need for specific tactics at specific times. Here are the last two Backgammon tactics to round out your game.

The Priming Game Strategy

If the goal of the blocking strategy is to slow down the opponent to shift her checkers, the Priming Game plan is to completely block any activity of the opponent by building a prime – ideally 6 points in a row. The opponent’s chips 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 established anywhere between point 2 and point eleven in your game board. Once you have successfully assembled the prime to stop the movement of your opponent, your competitor does not even get to toss the dice, and you shift your pieces and toss the dice again. You’ll be a winner for sure.

The Back Game Technique

The objectives of the Back Game technique and the Blocking Game plan are very similar – to hinder your competitor’s positions with hope to improve your odds of winning, however the Back Game plan relies on seperate tactics to achieve that. The Back Game technique is frequently utilized when you’re far behind your competitor. To play Backgammon with this tactic, you need to control two or more points in table, and to hit a blot (a single piece) late in the game. This strategy is more complex than others to play in Backgammon seeing as it needs careful movement of your chips and how the chips are relocated is partially the result of the dice toss.
