Sunday, 5. November 2023

As we have dicussed in the previous article, Backgammon is a game of ability and good luck. The goal is to move your pieces safely around the game board to your home board and at the same time your opponent shifts their pieces toward their home board in the opposing direction. With competing player chips shifting in opposing directions there is bound to be conflict and the requirement for particular techniques at particular instances. Here are the 2 final Backgammon techniques to complete your game.

The Priming Game Plan

If the purpose of the blocking plan is to slow down the opponent to move her chips, the Priming Game plan is to absolutely barricade any activity of the opponent by creating a prime – ideally 6 points in a row. The opponent’s pieces will either get hit, or result a battered position if he ever tries to escape the wall. The ambush of the prime can be setup anyplace between point two and point eleven in your half of the board. As soon as you’ve successfully assembled the prime to block the movement of your competitor, the competitor doesn’t even get to toss the dice, that means you move your pieces and roll the dice again. You will win the game for sure.

The Back Game Tactic

The goals of the Back Game tactic and the Blocking Game strategy are similar – to hinder your opponent’s positions hoping to boost your odds of succeeding, but the Back Game strategy relies on alternate techniques to do that. The Back Game technique is frequently utilized when you’re far behind your competitor. To participate in Backgammon with this plan, you need to control 2 or more points in table, and to hit a blot (a single piece) late in the game. This strategy is more challenging than others to employ in Backgammon because it needs careful movement of your chips and how the chips are relocated is partially the outcome of the dice toss.
