• The Essential Basics of Backgammon Strategies – Part 2

    [ English ]

    As we have dicussed in the last article, Backgammon is a game of talent and luck. The goal is to shift your chips carefully around the board to your inside board while at the same time your opposing player moves their pieces toward their home board in the opposite direction. With competing player chips shifting in opposing directions there is going to be conflict and the requirement for specific strategies at specific instances. Here are the last 2 Backgammon strategies to complete your game.

    The Priming Game Plan

    If the aim of the blocking strategy is to hamper the opponents ability to shift his chips, the Priming Game tactic is to absolutely barricade any activity of the opposing player by assembling a prime – ideally 6 points in a row. The competitor’s chips will either get hit, or result a battered position if he/she at all tries to leave the wall. The trap of the prime can be established anywhere between point 2 and point eleven in your half of the board. Once you’ve successfully built the prime to stop the movement of the competitor, the competitor does not even get a chance to toss the dice, that means you move your chips and roll the dice again. You will win the game for sure.

    The Back Game Strategy

    The objectives of the Back Game strategy and the Blocking Game technique are similar – to hinder your competitor’s positions in hope to improve your chances of winning, but the Back Game tactic relies on seperate tactics to achieve that. The Back Game strategy is commonly used when you are far behind your competitor. To compete in Backgammon with this technique, you need to hold two or more points in table, and to hit a blot (a single piece) late in the game. This plan is more difficult than others to employ in Backgammon because it requires careful movement of your checkers and how the pieces are relocated is partly the result of the dice roll.
