As we have dicussed in the previous article, Backgammon is a casino game of talent and luck. The goal is to shift your chips carefully around the game board to your inside board while at the same time your opposition moves their chips toward their home board in the opposite direction. With opposing player chips heading in opposing directions there is going to be conflict and the requirement for specific strategies at specific times. Here are the two final 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 barricade any activity of the opposing player by assembling a prime – ideally 6 points in a row. The competitor’s chips will either get hit, or end up in a battered position if she ever tries to leave the wall. The trap of the prime can be built anywhere between point 2 and point 11 in your game board. Once you have successfully assembled the prime to prevent the activity of the opponent, the opponent does not even get to roll the dice, and you shift your pieces and roll the dice yet again. You will win the game for sure.

The Back Game Strategy

The aims of the Back Game tactic and the Blocking Game strategy are very similar – to harm your competitor’s positions in hope to better your odds of winning, however the Back Game tactic utilizes alternate techniques to do that. The Back Game plan is often used when you’re far behind your opponent. To play Backgammon with this technique, you have to hold 2 or more points in table, and to hit a blot (a single checker) late in the game. This technique is more complex than others to use in Backgammon because it needs careful movement of your pieces and how the checkers are relocated is partly the result of the dice roll.
