As we have dicussed in the previous article, Backgammon is a game of ability and good luck. The aim is to shift your pieces safely around the 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 checkers moving in opposite directions there is going to be conflict and the requirement for particular tactics at particular times. Here are the last two Backgammon tactics to finish off your game.

The Priming Game Strategy

If the goal of the blocking tactic is to slow down the opponent to shift her checkers, the Priming Game plan is to completely stop any activity of the opposing player by assembling a prime – ideally 6 points in a row. The opponent’s pieces will either get hit, or result a battered position if he at all attempts to escape the wall. The ambush of the prime can be established anywhere between point two and point 11 in your game board. Once you have successfully constructed the prime to block the movement of the opponent, your opponent doesn’t even get a chance to toss the dice, that means you shift your checkers and roll the dice yet again. You’ll be a winner for sure.

The Back Game Strategy

The goals of the Back Game strategy and the Blocking Game strategy are similar – to hinder your competitor’s positions hoping to boost your chances of winning, but the Back Game tactic utilizes seperate techniques to do that. The Back Game strategy is frequently employed when you’re far behind your competitor. To compete in Backgammon with this plan, you have to hold two or more points in table, and to hit a blot late in the game. This tactic is more challenging than others to play in Backgammon because it needs careful movement of your checkers and how the chips are moved is partially the result of the dice roll.
