As we dicussed in the previous article, Backgammon is a game of ability and good luck. The aim is to move your chips carefully around the game board to your inside board while at the same time your opponent shifts their checkers toward their inner board in the opposite direction. With competing player checkers heading in opposing directions there is going to be conflict and the requirement for particular strategies at specific times. Here are the last 2 Backgammon techniques to complete your game.

The Priming Game Strategy

If the purpose of the blocking tactic is to slow down the opponent to move her pieces, the Priming Game tactic is to completely block any movement of the opposing player by creating a prime – ideally 6 points in a row. The competitor’s checkers will either get bumped, or result a bad position if he ever attempts to leave the wall. The trap of the prime can be established anyplace between point two and point 11 in your board. Once you have successfully constructed the prime to prevent the movement of your competitor, the competitor does not even get to roll the dice, and you move your chips and toss the dice again. You will win the game for sure.

The Back Game Plan

The aims of the Back Game technique and the Blocking Game technique are similar – to hurt your opponent’s positions with hope to improve your chances of winning, but the Back Game strategy uses alternate tactics to achieve that. The Back Game technique is generally employed when you are far behind your competitor. 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 strategy is more complex than others to employ in Backgammon because it needs careful movement of your pieces and how the pieces are relocated is partially the result of the dice roll.
