As we dicussed in the previous article, Backgammon is a casino game of ability and luck. The aim is to shift your checkers carefully around the board to your inner board while at the same time your opponent moves their checkers toward their inner board in the opposite direction. With competing player pieces moving in opposing directions there is bound to be conflict and the requirement for specific strategies at particular instances. Here are the 2 final Backgammon techniques to complete your game.

The Priming Game Strategy

If the aim of the blocking strategy is to hamper the opponents ability to shift their pieces, the Priming Game tactic is to absolutely stop any movement of the opposing player by constructing a prime – ideally 6 points in a row. The opponent’s checkers will either get bumped, or end up in a battered position if she at all attempts to escape the wall. The ambush of the prime can be setup anywhere between point two and point 11 in your game board. Once you’ve successfully assembled the prime to prevent the movement of the opponent, your competitor does not even get a chance to roll the dice, and you shift your checkers and roll the dice yet again. You will be a winner for sure.

The Back Game Strategy

The objectives of the Back Game tactic and the Blocking Game technique are very similar – to hurt your competitor’s positions with hope to improve your chances of succeeding, however the Back Game plan relies on seperate techniques to do that. The Back Game strategy is frequently utilized when you’re far behind your competitor. To participate in Backgammon with this technique, you need to hold two or more points in table, and to hit a blot late in the game. This strategy is more challenging than others to use in Backgammon seeing as it needs careful movement of your checkers and how the pieces are relocated is partially the outcome of the dice toss.
