The Essential Details of Backgammon Tactics – Part Two

As we dicussed in the previous article, Backgammon is a casino game of skill and pure luck. The goal is to move your checkers carefully around the board to your home board while at the same time your opponent shifts their chips toward their home board in the opposing direction. With opposing player pieces shifting in opposing directions there is bound to be conflict and the requirement for particular strategies at specific times. Here are the 2 final Backgammon strategies to finish off your game.

The Priming Game Tactic

If the purpose of the blocking plan is to hamper the opponents ability to move her chips, the Priming Game tactic is to absolutely barricade any movement of the opposing player by assembling a prime – ideally 6 points in a row. The opponent’s checkers will either get bumped, or result a damaged position if she ever attempts to escape the wall. The ambush of the prime can be built anywhere between point two and point eleven in your half of the board. Once you have successfully built the prime to block the movement of the opponent, the opponent doesn’t even get a chance to roll the dice, and you move your chips and roll the dice yet again. You will win the game for sure.

The Back Game Strategy

The goals of the Back Game tactic and the Blocking Game plan are similar – to harm your opponent’s positions with hope to improve your odds of succeeding, but the Back Game strategy relies on seperate techniques to achieve that. The Back Game plan is frequently used when you are far behind your opponent. To compete in Backgammon with this strategy, you need to control 2 or more points in table, and to hit a blot (a single piece) late in the game. This tactic is more challenging than others to play in Backgammon because it needs careful movement of your chips and how the checkers are relocated is partially the result of the dice toss.
