The Essential Facts of Backgammon Game Plans – Part Two
April 9th, 2022 by Claudia

As we have dicussed in the last article, Backgammon is a casino game of skill and luck. The goal is to shift your pieces safely around the board to your home board while at the same time your opponent shifts their checkers toward their inner board in the opposite direction. With competing player chips moving in opposite directions there is bound to be conflict and the need for specific techniques at specific times. Here are the 2 final Backgammon techniques to finish off your game.

The Priming Game Plan

If the purpose of the blocking tactic is to slow down the opponent to shift her checkers, the Priming Game tactic is to completely stop any activity of the opposing player by assembling a prime – ideally 6 points in a row. The competitor’s checkers will either get hit, or end up in a damaged position if he ever tries to leave the wall. The trap of the prime can be setup anywhere between point two and point eleven in your game board. Once you’ve successfully built the prime to prevent the activity of your competitor, your competitor does not even get to toss the dice, that means you shift your chips and roll the dice yet again. You’ll be a winner for sure.

The Back Game Strategy

The objectives of the Back Game strategy and the Blocking Game plan are very similar – to harm your competitor’s positions in hope to improve your odds of winning, but the Back Game technique utilizes different tactics to achieve that. The Back Game plan is frequently utilized when you’re far behind your competitor. To play Backgammon with this strategy, you need to hold 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 seeing as it requires careful movement of your checkers and how the pieces are relocated is partly the outcome of the dice roll.
