As we dicussed in the previous article, Backgammon is a game of skill and good luck. The goal is to move your pieces safely around the game board to your inner board and at the same time your opposing player shifts their chips toward their inside board in the opposing direction. With competing player pieces shifting in opposite directions there is going to be conflict and the requirement for particular strategies at particular times. Here are the 2 final Backgammon strategies to complete your game.

The Priming Game Strategy

If the aim of the blocking plan is to slow down the opponent to move his chips, the Priming Game tactic is to absolutely block any activity of the opponent by assembling a prime – ideally 6 points in a row. The opponent’s pieces will either get hit, or result a damaged position if he/she at all tries to leave the wall. The trap of the prime can be established anyplace between point 2 and point 11 in your game board. Once you have successfully built the prime to block the activity of the opponent, the opponent does not even get a chance to roll the dice, and you move your chips and toss the dice again. You will be a winner for sure.

The Back Game Technique

The aims of the Back Game plan and the Blocking Game tactic are similar – to harm your competitor’s positions hoping to boost your odds of succeeding, however the Back Game plan relies on seperate techniques to do that. The Back Game strategy is frequently used when you are far behind your opponent. To play Backgammon with this plan, you have to control 2 or more points in table, and to hit a blot late in the game. This plan is more complex than others to employ in Backgammon because it requires careful movement of your chips and how the chips are moved is partly the result of the dice roll.
