The Essential Facts of Backgammon Strategies – Part 2

Wednesday, 13. January 2021

As we have dicussed in the previous article, Backgammon is a game of talent and luck. The goal is to shift your pieces carefully around the game board to your inside board while at the same time your opposing player shifts their pieces toward their home board in the opposing direction. With opposing player chips heading in opposing directions there is bound to be conflict and the requirement for specific techniques at particular times. Here are the last two Backgammon plans to finish off your game.

The Priming Game Tactic

If the aim of the blocking tactic is to hamper the opponents ability to move their chips, the Priming Game strategy is to absolutely block any movement of the opponent by creating a prime – ideally 6 points in a row. The competitor’s chips will either get hit, or end up in a bad position if he at all attempts to escape the wall. The ambush of the prime can be established anywhere between point 2 and point eleven in your half of the board. After you’ve successfully built the prime to prevent the activity of your opponent, the competitor does not even get a chance to toss the dice, that means you shift your pieces and toss the dice again. You will win the game for sure.

The Back Game Strategy

The goals of the Back Game technique and the Blocking Game tactic are similar – to hinder your competitor’s positions with hope to improve your chances of succeeding, but the Back Game tactic utilizes seperate techniques to achieve that. The Back Game strategy is commonly utilized when you are far behind your opponent. To compete in Backgammon with this plan, you need to hold 2 or more points in table, and to hit a blot (a single piece) late in the game. This tactic is more challenging than others to play in Backgammon because it needs careful movement of your chips and how the checkers are relocated is partially the result of the dice roll.
