• The Essential Facts of Backgammon Strategies – Part Two

    As we have dicussed in the previous article, Backgammon is a casino game of skill and luck. The goal is to shift your pieces safely around the board to your home board while at the same time your opposition shifts their pieces toward their home board in the opposing direction. With opposing player checkers moving in opposing directions there is bound to be conflict and the requirement for specific tactics at specific instances. Here are the 2 final Backgammon techniques to round out your game.

    The Priming Game Strategy

    If the goal of the blocking plan is to hamper the opponents ability to move her checkers, the Priming Game plan is to absolutely barricade any movement of the opposing player by constructing a prime – ideally 6 points in a row. The competitor’s chips will either get hit, or end up in a battered position if he/she at all attempts to leave the wall. The trap of the prime can be built anyplace between point 2 and point eleven in your board. Once you’ve successfully built the prime to stop the movement of the competitor, your opponent doesn’t even get to toss the dice, that means you move your chips and roll the dice yet again. You’ll be a winner for sure.

    The Back Game Tactic

    The goals of the Back Game technique and the Blocking Game strategy are very similar – to hinder your opponent’s positions with hope to boost your odds of succeeding, but the Back Game technique uses seperate tactics to do that. The Back Game plan is generally utilized when you are far behind your opponent. To play Backgammon with this strategy, you need to hold two or more points in table, and to hit a blot late in the game. This plan is more complex than others to employ in Backgammon because it requires careful movement of your pieces and how the chips are moved is partly the outcome of the dice roll.
