The Essential Details of Backgammon Tactics – Part Two

[ English ]

As we dicussed in the last article, Backgammon is a game of talent and luck. The goal is to move your checkers safely around the board to your inner board and at the same time your opposing player moves their chips toward their inside board in the opposite direction. With opposing player chips heading in opposite directions there is going to be conflict and the requirement for specific strategies at particular instances. Here are the last two Backgammon strategies to complete your game.

The Priming Game Strategy

If the aim of the blocking tactic is to hamper the opponents ability to move her pieces, the Priming Game plan is to completely stop any activity of the opponent 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 at all tries to escape the wall. The ambush of the prime can be built anywhere between point two and point 11 in your game board. After you have successfully assembled the prime to stop the activity of your competitor, the competitor does not even get a chance to roll the dice, that means you move your checkers and toss the dice yet again. You will win the game for sure.

The Back Game Strategy

The objectives of the Back Game technique and the Blocking Game strategy are similar – to harm your opponent’s positions in hope to better your chances of winning, but the Back Game strategy uses different techniques to do that. The Back Game tactic is frequently used when you’re far behind your competitor. To compete in Backgammon with this plan, you need to control two or more points in table, and to hit a blot late in the game. This technique is more difficult than others to use in Backgammon because it requires careful movement of your pieces and how the chips are relocated is partly the outcome of the dice roll.
