As we have dicussed in the last article, Backgammon is a casino game of skill and pure luck. The aim is to move your pieces carefully around the board to your inner board while at the same time your opposing player moves their pieces toward their inside board in the opposite direction. With opposing player checkers shifting in opposite directions there is going to be conflict and the requirement for specific techniques at specific instances. Here are the 2 final Backgammon tactics to round out your game.

The Priming Game Strategy

If the purpose of the blocking plan is to hamper the opponents ability to move his chips, the Priming Game strategy is to completely barricade any activity of the opposing player by creating a prime – ideally 6 points in a row. The competitor’s checkers will either get bumped, or end up in a damaged position if he/she at all tries to leave the wall. The trap of the prime can be setup anyplace between point 2 and point eleven in your game board. After you have successfully assembled the prime to stop the activity of your competitor, the competitor does not even get to roll the dice, that means you shift your chips and toss the dice again. You will be a winner for sure.

The Back Game Tactic

The goals of the Back Game tactic and the Blocking Game tactic are similar – to harm your competitor’s positions hoping to boost your odds of succeeding, but the Back Game tactic relies on seperate tactics to do that. The Back Game technique is frequently utilized when you’re far behind your competitor. To participate in Backgammon with this tactic, you need to control two or more points in table, and to hit a blot late in the game. This plan is more challenging than others to use in Backgammon because it needs careful movement of your chips and how the checkers are moved is partly the outcome of the dice toss.
