The Essential Details of Backgammon Strategies – Part Two
Aug 13th, 2017 by Claudia

As we dicussed in the previous article, Backgammon is a game of talent and luck. The aim is to shift your chips carefully around the game board to your inside board while at the same time your opposing player moves their pieces toward their inner board in the opposing direction. With opposing player chips shifting in opposing directions there is bound to be conflict and the requirement for specific strategies at specific times. Here are the two final Backgammon plans to finish off your game.

The Priming Game Strategy

If the purpose of the blocking plan is to hamper the opponents ability to shift his chips, the Priming Game plan is to completely barricade any movement of the opposing player by creating a prime – ideally 6 points in a row. The opponent’s checkers will either get hit, or end up in a bad position if he/she ever tries to leave the wall. The ambush of the prime can be built anywhere between point 2 and point eleven in your game board. Once you have successfully built the prime to block the activity of the competitor, your opponent does not even get a chance to roll the dice, that means you move your pieces and toss the dice yet again. You will be a winner for sure.

The Back Game Strategy

The objectives of the Back Game plan and the Blocking Game technique are very similar – to hurt your competitor’s positions hoping to boost your odds of succeeding, however the Back Game strategy utilizes alternate tactics to do that. The Back Game tactic is frequently employed when you are far behind your opponent. To play Backgammon with this plan, you need 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 use in Backgammon seeing as it needs careful movement of your pieces and how the pieces are relocated is partially the result of the dice toss.
