As we dicussed in the previous article, Backgammon is a casino game of skill and luck. The aim is to shift your checkers carefully around the board to your inside board and at the same time your opposing player moves their pieces toward their home board in the opposing direction. With competing player checkers shifting in opposing directions there is going to be conflict and the need for specific techniques at specific instances. Here are the last two Backgammon plans to complete your game.

The Priming Game Tactic

If the aim of the blocking tactic is to slow down the opponent to shift her chips, the Priming Game plan is to absolutely stop any movement of the opponent by constructing a prime – ideally 6 points in a row. The competitor’s pieces will either get hit, or end up in a bad position if he ever attempts to leave the wall. The trap of the prime can be setup anyplace between point two and point eleven in your board. Once you’ve successfully built the prime to prevent the movement of the opponent, your opponent does not even get to roll the dice, that means you move your chips and toss the dice yet again. You will win the game for sure.

The Back Game Technique

The objectives of the Back Game strategy and the Blocking Game technique are similar – to hinder your competitor’s positions hoping to boost your odds of succeeding, but the Back Game technique relies on different techniques to do that. The Back Game strategy is generally employed when you are far behind your competitor. To compete in Backgammon with this tactic, you have to control two or more points in table, and to hit a blot (a single piece) late in the game. This strategy is more complex than others to use in Backgammon seeing as it requires careful movement of your chips and how the checkers are relocated is partially the outcome of the dice roll.
