The Essential Basics of Backgammon Tactics – Part 2

As we dicussed in the previous article, Backgammon is a casino game of ability and good luck. The goal is to shift your checkers carefully around the game board to your inside board and at the same time your opposing player shifts their checkers toward their inner board in the opposing direction. With competing player checkers moving in opposing directions there is going to be conflict and the need for particular strategies at specific times. Here are the last 2 Backgammon tactics to finish off your game.

The Priming Game Tactic

If the purpose of the blocking tactic is to slow down the opponent to shift their pieces, the Priming Game strategy is to absolutely stop any movement of the opposing player by creating a prime – ideally 6 points in a row. The competitor’s chips will either get hit, or end up in a damaged position if she ever tries to leave the wall. The trap of the prime can be built anyplace between point two and point 11 in your game board. After you have successfully constructed the prime to block the activity of your competitor, your opponent doesn’t even get to toss the dice, that means you shift your chips and toss the dice yet again. You will win the game for sure.

The Back Game Plan

The aims of the Back Game tactic and the Blocking Game plan are similar – to hinder your competitor’s positions hoping to improve your chances of winning, however the Back Game technique relies on alternate techniques to achieve that. The Back Game plan is generally utilized when you’re far behind your opponent. To compete in Backgammon with this strategy, you have to control 2 or more points in table, and to hit a blot late in the game. This plan is more difficult than others to employ in Backgammon seeing as it needs careful movement of your pieces and how the pieces are moved is partly the outcome of the dice toss.
