The Essential Details of Backgammon Tactics – Part Two

As we have dicussed in the previous article, Backgammon is a casino game of ability and pure luck. The aim is to shift your chips carefully around the game board to your home board and at the same time your opposing player moves their pieces toward their inner board in the opposing direction. With opposing player chips shifting in opposing directions there is going to be conflict and the requirement for particular tactics at specific times. Here are the two final Backgammon techniques to round out your game.

The Priming Game Plan

If the purpose of the blocking plan is to slow down the opponent to move their chips, the Priming Game plan is to completely block any movement of the opposing player by creating a prime – ideally 6 points in a row. The opponent’s checkers will either get bumped, or end up in a bad position if she ever tries to escape the wall. The trap of the prime can be established anyplace between point 2 and point eleven in your board. As soon as you have successfully built the prime to prevent the activity of your competitor, the opponent does not even get a chance to toss the dice, that means you shift your chips and toss the dice yet again. You’ll be a winner for sure.

The Back Game Tactic

The aims of the Back Game plan and the Blocking Game technique are very similar – to hinder your competitor’s positions in hope to improve your chances of winning, but the Back Game technique utilizes seperate tactics to do that. The Back Game technique is often utilized when you are far behind your competitor. To compete in Backgammon with this technique, you need to hold two or more points in table, and to hit a blot (a single piece) late in the game. This technique is more challenging than others to play in Backgammon because it requires careful movement of your checkers and how the checkers are moved is partially the outcome of the dice roll.
