As we have dicussed in the previous article, Backgammon is a casino game of ability and luck. The aim is to shift your pieces safely around the board to your inside board while at the same time your opposing player shifts their checkers toward their inside board in the opposite direction. With competing player checkers heading in opposite directions there is going to be conflict and the need for particular tactics at particular times. Here are the last 2 Backgammon techniques to complete your game.

The Priming Game Strategy

If the goal of the blocking strategy is to slow down the opponent to move her pieces, the Priming Game strategy is to completely block any activity of the opponent by building a prime – ideally 6 points in a row. The opponent’s chips will either get bumped, or end up in a battered position if she at all attempts to leave the wall. The trap of the prime can be built anyplace between point two and point eleven in your game board. After you have successfully constructed the prime to prevent the activity of your opponent, the competitor does not even get to toss the dice, and you move your pieces and roll the dice again. You will be a winner for sure.

The Back Game Technique

The objectives of the Back Game strategy and the Blocking Game technique are similar – to harm your opponent’s positions hoping to better your odds of succeeding, however the Back Game plan utilizes alternate techniques to achieve that. The Back Game technique is commonly employed when you’re far behind your competitor. To participate in Backgammon with this plan, you have to hold 2 or more points in table, and to hit a blot late in the game. This strategy is more complex than others to employ in Backgammon seeing as it needs careful movement of your pieces and how the checkers are relocated is partially the result of the dice toss.
