• The Essential Details of Backgammon Tactics – Part Two

    [ English ]

    As we have dicussed in the previous article, Backgammon is a casino game of talent and pure luck. The aim is to shift your pieces carefully around the game board to your home board while at the same time your opponent shifts their checkers toward their inner board in the opposing direction. With competing player checkers heading in opposite directions there is going to be conflict and the need for specific techniques at particular instances. Here are the 2 final Backgammon techniques to complete your game.

    The Priming Game Tactic

    If the aim of the blocking strategy is to slow down the opponent to shift her checkers, the Priming Game tactic is to absolutely stop any movement of the opposing player by building a prime – ideally 6 points in a row. The opponent’s pieces will either get hit, or end up in a battered position if he at all tries to leave the wall. The ambush of the prime can be established anyplace between point 2 and point 11 in your board. After you’ve successfully constructed the prime to prevent the movement of the competitor, the competitor does not even get a chance to roll the dice, that means you shift your chips and toss the dice again. You’ll be a winner for sure.

    The Back Game Technique

    The aims of the Back Game tactic and the Blocking Game strategy are similar – to harm your competitor’s positions in hope to better your chances of succeeding, however the Back Game strategy utilizes different techniques to do that. The Back Game strategy is generally used when you’re far behind your competitor. To play Backgammon with this plan, you need 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 use in Backgammon because it requires careful movement of your chips and how the chips are relocated is partially the outcome of the dice toss.
