• The Essential Facts of Backgammon Game Plans – Part 2

    [ English ]

    As we have dicussed in the last article, Backgammon is a game of skill and pure luck. The aim is to move your pieces safely around the board to your inner board and at the same time your opposition shifts their pieces toward their inner board in the opposite direction. With opposing player chips shifting in opposing directions there is going to be conflict and the need for particular strategies at particular times. Here are the last two Backgammon plans to complete your game.

    The Priming Game Plan

    If the goal of the blocking strategy is to slow down the opponent to move her pieces, the Priming Game strategy is to completely stop any activity of the opponent by creating a prime – ideally 6 points in a row. The opponent’s checkers will either get bumped, or end up in a battered position if he/she ever tries to escape the wall. The ambush of the prime can be setup anyplace between point 2 and point 11 in your board. Once you have successfully built the prime to stop the movement of your competitor, your opponent doesn’t even get to roll the dice, and you shift your chips and toss the dice again. You’ll be a winner for sure.

    The Back Game Technique

    The objectives of the Back Game tactic and the Blocking Game tactic are very similar – to hinder your competitor’s positions hoping to improve your chances of succeeding, however the Back Game technique utilizes different techniques to achieve that. The Back Game technique is frequently utilized when you’re far behind your competitor. To compete in Backgammon with this strategy, you have to control 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 because it needs careful movement of your chips and how the pieces are relocated is partly the result of the dice toss.
