The Essential Details of Backgammon Strategies – Part Two
November 5th, 2021 by Claudia

As we dicussed in the last article, Backgammon is a casino game of ability and good luck. The aim is to move your checkers safely around the board to your inner board while at the same time your opposition shifts their chips toward their inside board in the opposing direction. With opposing player chips moving in opposite directions there is bound to be conflict and the requirement for specific techniques at specific times. Here are the 2 final Backgammon tactics to finish off your game.

The Priming Game Plan

If the purpose of the blocking tactic is to hamper the opponents ability to move their checkers, the Priming Game tactic is to completely barricade any activity of the opposing player by constructing a prime – ideally 6 points in a row. The competitor’s pieces will either get bumped, or end up in a battered position if he/she ever tries to leave the wall. The trap of the prime can be built anywhere between point two and point 11 in your half of the board. As soon as you’ve successfully built the prime to stop the activity of the competitor, your opponent doesn’t even get a chance to roll the dice, that means you move your chips and roll the dice yet again. You will be a winner for sure.

The Back Game Strategy

The aims of the Back Game plan and the Blocking Game plan are similar – to harm your opponent’s positions hoping to improve your chances of winning, however the Back Game strategy relies on different techniques to do that. The Back Game strategy is generally utilized when you are far behind your competitor. To play Backgammon with this technique, you have to control 2 or more points in table, and to hit a blot (a single checker) late in the game. This plan is more challenging than others to use in Backgammon because it needs careful movement of your pieces and how the chips are moved is partially the result of the dice toss.
