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

The Priming Game Tactic

If the purpose of the blocking plan is to slow down the opponent to move her pieces, the Priming Game tactic is to completely barricade any activity of the opposing player by building a prime – ideally 6 points in a row. The opponent’s pieces will either get bumped, or end up in a battered position if he ever attempts to leave the wall. The ambush of the prime can be established anyplace between point 2 and point 11 in your half of the board. After you have successfully built the prime to stop the activity of the competitor, your competitor doesn’t even get a chance to toss the dice, that means you move your pieces and roll the dice yet again. You will win the game for sure.

The Back Game Plan

The objectives of the Back Game technique and the Blocking Game tactic are very similar – to hurt your opponent’s positions hoping to improve your chances of succeeding, but the Back Game technique relies on alternate tactics to achieve that. The Back Game strategy is generally utilized when you’re far behind your competitor. To play Backgammon with this plan, you have to control two or more points in table, and to hit a blot late in the game. This technique is more difficult than others to employ in Backgammon seeing as it requires careful movement of your chips and how the pieces are relocated is partially the result of the dice roll.
