As we have dicussed in the last article, Backgammon is a game of skill and good luck. The aim is to shift your pieces safely around the game board to your inner board and at the same time your opposition moves their pieces toward their inner board in the opposite direction. With opposing player checkers moving in opposing directions there is going to be conflict and the requirement for particular tactics at specific instances. Here are the last 2 Backgammon techniques to finish off your game.

The Priming Game Plan

If the aim of the blocking strategy is to slow down the opponent to shift their checkers, the Priming Game strategy is to absolutely block any movement of the opposing player by assembling a prime – ideally 6 points in a row. The opponent’s pieces will either get bumped, or end up in a battered position if she ever tries to escape the wall. The trap of the prime can be built anywhere between point 2 and point eleven in your board. After you have successfully assembled the prime to stop the movement of the opponent, the opponent doesn’t even get to roll the dice, that means you shift your checkers and roll the dice again. You will be a winner for sure.

The Back Game Technique

The aims of the Back Game tactic and the Blocking Game technique are similar – to hinder your opponent’s positions hoping to boost your odds of succeeding, but the Back Game technique relies on seperate techniques to do that. The Back Game plan is commonly used when you are far behind your competitor. To play Backgammon with this strategy, you have to hold 2 or more points in table, and to hit a blot (a single checker) late in the game. This strategy is more difficult than others to play in Backgammon because it requires careful movement of your checkers and how the pieces are moved is partly the outcome of the dice roll.
