[ English ]

As we have dicussed in the last article, Backgammon is a casino game of ability and good luck. The goal is to move your checkers safely around the game board to your inside board while at the same time your opponent moves their chips toward their inside board in the opposite direction. With opposing player checkers moving in opposite directions there is bound to be conflict and the requirement for particular tactics at particular times. Here are the 2 final Backgammon strategies to complete your game.

The Priming Game Tactic

If the aim of the blocking plan is to hamper the opponents ability to move his checkers, the Priming Game strategy is to completely block any activity of the opponent by assembling a prime – ideally 6 points in a row. The competitor’s chips will either get hit, or result a battered position if she ever attempts to leave the wall. The ambush of the prime can be built anywhere between point two and point eleven in your game board. After you have successfully built the prime to prevent the activity of your competitor, the competitor does not even get a chance to roll the dice, that means you move your pieces and toss the dice again. You’ll be a winner for sure.

The Back Game Tactic

The objectives of the Back Game strategy and the Blocking Game strategy are very similar – to hurt your opponent’s positions in hope to better your odds of succeeding, but the Back Game tactic utilizes seperate tactics to do that. The Back Game technique is often utilized when you’re far behind your competitor. To participate in Backgammon with this plan, you have to hold 2 or more points in table, and to hit a blot (a single checker) late in the game. This plan is more challenging than others to employ in Backgammon seeing as it requires careful movement of your checkers and how the checkers are relocated is partly the result of the dice roll.
