As we dicussed in the previous article, Backgammon is a game of ability and pure luck. The goal is to shift your pieces safely around the board to your inside board and at the same time your opposition moves their pieces toward their inner board in the opposite direction. With competing player chips heading in opposite directions there is going to be conflict and the requirement for particular tactics at particular times. Here are the last 2 Backgammon strategies to round out your game.

The Priming Game Plan

If the goal of the blocking plan is to slow down the opponent to move their pieces, the Priming Game strategy is to completely block any movement of the opponent by assembling a prime – ideally 6 points in a row. The opponent’s checkers will either get hit, or result a damaged position if he/she ever attempts to escape the wall. The ambush of the prime can be built anyplace between point 2 and point 11 in your half of the board. After you have successfully built the prime to block the activity of the competitor, your competitor doesn’t even get a chance to toss the dice, that means you shift your checkers and toss the dice yet again. You’ll win the game for sure.

The Back Game Tactic

The aims of the Back Game strategy and the Blocking Game plan are similar – to harm your opponent’s positions in hope to better your odds of winning, but the Back Game technique uses different tactics to do that. The Back Game strategy is frequently used when you’re far behind your opponent. To play Backgammon with this technique, you need to hold two or more points in table, and to hit a blot (a single piece) 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 partly the result of the dice toss.
