As we have dicussed in the previous article, Backgammon is a casino game of talent and good luck. The goal is to shift your pieces safely around the board to your inner board and at the same time your opposing player moves their pieces toward their inner board in the opposite direction. With opposing player checkers heading in opposite directions there is bound to be conflict and the need for specific strategies at specific instances. Here are the 2 final Backgammon techniques to finish off your game.

The Priming Game Tactic

If the goal of the blocking strategy is to slow down the opponent to shift her pieces, the Priming Game plan is to absolutely stop any activity of the opposing player by building a prime – ideally 6 points in a row. The opponent’s chips will either get hit, or end up in a bad position if he/she ever attempts to escape the wall. The trap of the prime can be built anywhere between point 2 and point 11 in your game board. Once you’ve successfully built the prime to stop the movement of the competitor, the competitor does not even get to toss the dice, and you shift your chips and toss the dice yet again. You will be a winner for sure.

The Back Game Tactic

The objectives of the Back Game technique and the Blocking Game strategy are similar – to harm your opponent’s positions with hope to better your chances of succeeding, but the Back Game plan relies on alternate tactics to achieve that. The Back Game technique is generally utilized when you’re far behind your competitor. To compete in Backgammon with this technique, you have to hold 2 or more points in table, and to hit a blot late in the game. This tactic is more complex than others to use in Backgammon because it requires careful movement of your pieces and how the checkers are relocated is partially the result of the dice toss.
