As we dicussed in the last article, Backgammon is a casino game of talent and luck. The aim is to move your pieces safely around the game board to your inner board while at the same time your opponent moves their pieces toward their inner board in the opposing direction. With opposing player checkers shifting in opposing directions there is going to be conflict and the need for specific tactics at particular instances. Here are the last 2 Backgammon tactics to round out 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 block any movement of the opponent by assembling a prime – ideally 6 points in a row. The competitor’s checkers will either get bumped, or result a battered position if he/she ever tries to leave the wall. The trap of the prime can be setup anywhere between point two and point eleven in your half of the board. As soon as you’ve successfully assembled the prime to prevent the activity of your competitor, the competitor doesn’t even get a chance to roll the dice, that means you move your chips and roll the dice again. You will be a winner for sure.

The Back Game Technique

The objectives of the Back Game technique and the Blocking Game tactic are very similar – to hurt your opponent’s positions in hope to boost your odds of succeeding, however the Back Game strategy utilizes seperate tactics to do that. The Back Game technique is generally utilized when you are far behind your opponent. To compete in Backgammon with this tactic, you need to hold two or more points in table, and to hit a blot (a single piece) late in the game. This tactic is more complex than others to employ in Backgammon because it needs careful movement of your checkers and how the checkers are relocated is partly the result of the dice roll.
