The Essential Details of Backgammon Tactics – Part Two
September 16th, 2022 by Claudia

As we have dicussed in the previous article, Backgammon is a game of skill and pure luck. The aim is to shift your checkers carefully around the game board to your home board while at the same time your opponent shifts their chips toward their home board in the opposing direction. With competing player pieces moving in opposite directions there is bound to be conflict and the requirement for particular techniques at particular times. Here are the 2 final Backgammon strategies to finish off your game.

The Priming Game Strategy

If the goal of the blocking tactic is to hamper the opponents ability to shift his checkers, the Priming Game plan is to completely block any activity of the opposing player by constructing a prime – ideally 6 points in a row. The competitor’s pieces will either get hit, or result a battered position if she ever tries to escape the wall. The ambush of the prime can be built anywhere between point 2 and point 11 in your half of the board. After you have successfully built the prime to block the activity of the competitor, the competitor does not even get to roll the dice, that means you shift your checkers and toss the dice again. You’ll win the game for sure.

The Back Game Tactic

The objectives of the Back Game technique and the Blocking Game plan are similar – to harm your opponent’s positions in hope to better your chances of succeeding, but the Back Game strategy relies on seperate techniques to do that. The Back Game strategy is frequently employed when you are far behind your opponent. To play Backgammon with this tactic, you have to control two or more points in table, and to hit a blot (a single checker) late in the game. This plan is more difficult than others to employ in Backgammon because it needs careful movement of your chips and how the pieces are relocated is partly the outcome of the dice roll.
