The Basics of Backgammon Strategies – Part 2
September 28th, 2022 by Claudia

As we dicussed in the previous article, Backgammon is a casino game of skill and good luck. The aim is to shift your checkers carefully around the game board to your inside board while at the same time your opponent shifts their pieces toward their home board in the opposite direction. With competing player chips moving in opposite directions there is bound to be conflict and the need for specific tactics at particular instances. Here are the last two Backgammon plans to complete your game.

The Priming Game Strategy

If the goal of the blocking tactic is to slow down the opponent to move her chips, the Priming Game tactic is to absolutely stop any movement of the opponent by constructing a prime – ideally 6 points in a row. The opponent’s checkers will either get bumped, or result a damaged position if she at all attempts to escape the wall. The ambush of the prime can be established anyplace between point two and point eleven in your board. After you’ve successfully built the prime to prevent the activity of the competitor, your competitor doesn’t even get to roll the dice, and you shift your chips and roll the dice again. You will win the game for sure.

The Back Game Technique

The objectives of the Back Game technique and the Blocking Game plan are similar – to harm your competitor’s positions in hope to boost your chances of succeeding, but the Back Game plan relies on seperate tactics to achieve that. The Back Game strategy is commonly used when you’re far behind your opponent. To compete in Backgammon with this plan, you need to hold two or more points in table, and to hit a blot late in the game. This technique is more challenging than others to play in Backgammon seeing as it needs careful movement of your chips and how the chips are relocated is partly the result of the dice roll.
