As we dicussed in the previous article, Backgammon is a game of talent and good luck. The aim is to move your checkers safely around the game board to your inner board and at the same time your opposing player moves their pieces toward their inside board in the opposite direction. With opposing player chips heading in opposite directions there is going to be conflict and the need for particular strategies at specific instances. Here are the last 2 Backgammon strategies to complete your game.

The Priming Game Strategy

If the purpose of the blocking strategy is to hamper the opponents ability to shift their pieces, the Priming Game strategy is to absolutely stop any activity of the opponent by building a prime – ideally 6 points in a row. The opponent’s pieces will either get hit, or end up in a bad position if he ever attempts to escape the wall. The trap of the prime can be built anyplace between point two and point 11 in your game board. Once you’ve successfully built the prime to block the movement of your opponent, your opponent does not even get a chance to toss the dice, and you shift your pieces and toss the dice yet again. You will be a winner for sure.

The Back Game Strategy

The aims of the Back Game technique and the Blocking Game plan are similar – to harm your competitor’s positions in hope to better your odds of succeeding, however the Back Game plan utilizes different tactics to do that. The Back Game strategy is often used when you’re far behind your opponent. To participate in Backgammon with this strategy, you need to control two or more points in table, and to hit a blot late in the game. This tactic is more difficult than others to use in Backgammon because it requires careful movement of your chips and how the chips are relocated is partially the result of the dice toss.
