The Basics of Backgammon Strategies – Part Two
March 20th, 2022 by Claudia

As we dicussed in the last article, Backgammon is a game of skill and luck. The goal is to move your chips carefully around the game board to your home board while at the same time your opposing player moves their chips toward their inside board in the opposing direction. With competing player pieces heading in opposing directions there is bound to be conflict and the need for specific tactics at specific instances. Here are the last 2 Backgammon plans to finish off your game.

The Priming Game Tactic

If the aim of the blocking strategy is to hamper the opponents ability to shift her chips, the Priming Game tactic is to absolutely block any movement of the opponent by constructing a prime – ideally 6 points in a row. The competitor’s pieces will either get bumped, or result a damaged position if he ever tries to escape the wall. The trap of the prime can be setup anyplace between point two and point eleven in your game board. Once you’ve successfully constructed the prime to block the movement of the opponent, the opponent does not even get a chance to toss the dice, that means you move your checkers and roll the dice again. You will win the game for sure.

The Back Game Strategy

The objectives of the Back Game technique and the Blocking Game strategy are similar – to harm your competitor’s positions hoping to improve your chances of succeeding, however the Back Game plan utilizes alternate tactics to do that. The Back Game tactic is commonly utilized when you are far behind your opponent. To participate in Backgammon with this tactic, you have to control two or more points in table, and to hit a blot (a single piece) late in the game. This tactic is more difficult than others to play in Backgammon because it needs careful movement of your pieces and how the chips are relocated is partially the outcome of the dice roll.
