As we dicussed in the last article, Backgammon is a game of skill and pure luck. The aim is to shift your checkers safely around the game board to your inside board and at the same time your opposing player shifts their checkers toward their home board in the opposite direction. With competing player checkers moving in opposite directions there is bound to be conflict and the need for particular techniques at specific times. Here are the last 2 Backgammon tactics to complete your game.

The Priming Game Plan

If the aim of the blocking plan is to hamper the opponents ability to shift his chips, the Priming Game strategy is to completely stop any movement of the opposing player by building a prime – ideally 6 points in a row. The opponent’s checkers will either get hit, or result a bad position if he/she at all tries to leave the wall. The trap of the prime can be built anywhere between point two and point eleven in your game board. As soon as you’ve successfully constructed the prime to block the activity of the opponent, your opponent does not even get a chance to toss the dice, that means you shift your checkers and toss the dice again. You’ll win the game for sure.

The Back Game Technique

The aims of the Back Game plan and the Blocking Game plan are similar – to harm your competitor’s positions in hope to improve your odds of succeeding, but the Back Game technique utilizes seperate techniques to achieve that. The Back Game technique is frequently used when you’re far behind your opponent. To play Backgammon with this strategy, you have to hold two or more points in table, and to hit a blot late in the game. This plan is more challenging than others to employ in Backgammon because it needs careful movement of your pieces and how the chips are relocated is partially the result of the dice toss.
