The Essential Details of Backgammon Tactics – Part Two

Tuesday, 22. August 2023

As we dicussed in the previous article, Backgammon is a game of ability and good luck. The aim is to move your pieces carefully around the board to your inner board while at the same time your opponent shifts their pieces toward their home board in the opposing direction. With competing player checkers heading in opposite directions there is going to be conflict and the requirement for particular strategies at particular instances. Here are the two final Backgammon plans to complete your game.

The Priming Game Tactic

If the aim of the blocking strategy is to slow down the opponent to move her checkers, the Priming Game plan is to absolutely block any activity of the opposing player by building a prime – ideally 6 points in a row. The competitor’s chips will either get bumped, or end up in a damaged position if he at all tries to escape the wall. The ambush of the prime can be built anywhere between point 2 and point 11 in your board. Once you’ve successfully assembled the prime to prevent the movement of your competitor, the opponent does not even get to toss the dice, that means you move your pieces and toss the dice again. You will win the game for sure.

The Back Game Plan

The objectives of the Back Game tactic and the Blocking Game plan are very similar – to hinder your opponent’s positions in hope to boost your chances of winning, however the Back Game technique uses alternate techniques to do that. The Back Game plan is frequently utilized when you’re far behind your competitor. To participate in Backgammon with this tactic, you have to hold 2 or more points in table, and to hit a blot (a single checker) late in the game. This tactic is more challenging than others to play in Backgammon because it requires careful movement of your chips and how the pieces are moved is partly the result of the dice roll.
