• The Basics of Backgammon Tactics – Part 2

    As we have dicussed in the previous article, Backgammon is a casino game of skill and pure luck. The goal is to move your checkers safely around the board to your inside board while at the same time your opponent moves their pieces toward their inner board in the opposite direction. With opposing player checkers heading in opposing directions there is going to be conflict and the need for particular techniques at particular instances. Here are the last two Backgammon plans to round out your game.

    The Priming Game Strategy

    If the aim of the blocking strategy is to hamper the opponents ability to move their checkers, the Priming Game tactic is to absolutely block any movement of the opposing player by creating a prime – ideally 6 points in a row. The competitor’s checkers will either get hit, or result a battered position if he/she ever attempts to leave the wall. The ambush of the prime can be setup anyplace between point 2 and point 11 in your board. After you have successfully constructed the prime to block the movement of the opponent, the opponent doesn’t even get a chance to roll the dice, that means you move your pieces and toss the dice again. You will win the game for sure.

    The Back Game Technique

    The objectives of the Back Game tactic and the Blocking Game tactic are similar – to hinder your competitor’s positions hoping to boost your odds of winning, but the Back Game technique utilizes different techniques to do that. The Back Game tactic is commonly utilized when you are far behind your competitor. To compete in Backgammon with this plan, you need to control 2 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 play in Backgammon because it requires careful movement of your pieces and how the checkers are relocated is partly the result of the dice roll.
