The Essential Details of Backgammon Strategies – Part 2

As we have dicussed in the previous article, Backgammon is a casino game of skill and good luck. The aim is to shift your chips safely around the board to your inside board and at the same time your opposition shifts their checkers toward their inside board in the opposite direction. With competing player chips shifting in opposite directions there is going to be conflict and the requirement for particular strategies at specific times. Here are the 2 final Backgammon techniques to finish off your game.

The Priming Game Tactic

If the purpose of the blocking plan is to slow down the opponent to shift his chips, the Priming Game strategy is to absolutely barricade any movement of the opposing player by building a prime – ideally 6 points in a row. The competitor’s chips will either get hit, or end up in a battered position if he ever tries to escape the wall. The trap of the prime can be established anyplace between point two and point eleven in your half of the board. After you have successfully assembled the prime to block the movement of the competitor, the competitor does not even get to roll the dice, and you shift your chips and toss the dice again. You will win the game for sure.

The Back Game Tactic

The objectives of the Back Game strategy and the Blocking Game plan are very similar – to hurt your opponent’s positions in hope to boost your chances of winning, but the Back Game strategy uses alternate techniques to do that. The Back Game technique is frequently utilized when you are far behind your opponent. To participate in Backgammon with this technique, you need to hold 2 or more points in table, and to hit a blot (a single checker) late in the game. This plan is more difficult than others to play in Backgammon because it needs careful movement of your checkers and how the checkers are relocated is partly the result of the dice roll.
