• The Basics of Backgammon Strategies – Part 2

    [ English ]

    As we dicussed in the last article, Backgammon is a game of skill and pure luck. The aim is to move your chips carefully around the board to your home board and at the same time your opposing player shifts their chips toward their home board in the opposing direction. With competing player pieces shifting in opposing directions there is going to be conflict and the requirement for particular tactics at particular times. Here are the last two Backgammon strategies to finish off your game.

    The Priming Game Plan

    If the purpose of the blocking tactic is to hamper the opponents ability to shift her checkers, the Priming Game strategy is to absolutely block any movement of the opponent by constructing a prime – ideally 6 points in a row. The competitor’s checkers will either get hit, or end up in a damaged position if he/she ever tries to escape the wall. The ambush of the prime can be built anyplace between point two and point 11 in your game board. As soon as you have successfully assembled the prime to stop the movement of your competitor, the opponent does not even get a chance to roll the dice, that means you shift your chips and toss the dice again. You will win the game for sure.

    The Back Game Strategy

    The objectives of the Back Game technique and the Blocking Game technique are similar – to hinder your opponent’s positions in hope to improve your chances of winning, but the Back Game tactic relies on seperate techniques to achieve that. The Back Game plan is frequently utilized when you’re far behind your competitor. To participate in Backgammon with this tactic, you need to hold two or more points in table, and to hit a blot (a single checker) late in the game. This strategy is more complex than others to employ in Backgammon seeing as it requires careful movement of your chips and how the checkers are relocated is partly the outcome of the dice roll.
