• The Essential Details of Backgammon Tactics – Part Two

    As we have dicussed in the previous article, Backgammon is a casino game of ability and good luck. The goal is to move your checkers carefully around the game board to your inside board while at the same time your opposition shifts their checkers toward their inside board in the opposite direction. With competing player chips shifting in opposing directions there is bound to be conflict and the requirement for particular tactics at specific instances. Here are the 2 final Backgammon strategies to round out your game.

    The Priming Game Plan

    If the purpose of the blocking tactic is to slow down the opponent to move her chips, the Priming Game strategy is to completely stop any movement of the opponent by assembling a prime – ideally 6 points in a row. The competitor’s checkers will either get bumped, or end up in a bad position if he at all tries to escape the wall. The trap of the prime can be setup anywhere between point 2 and point eleven in your half of the board. Once you have successfully built the prime to prevent the activity of the opponent, your opponent doesn’t even get to toss the dice, that means you move your pieces and toss the dice again. You will be a winner for sure.

    The Back Game Strategy

    The aims of the Back Game tactic and the Blocking Game strategy are very similar – to harm your opponent’s positions in hope to improve your chances of succeeding, however the Back Game technique utilizes seperate tactics to do that. The Back Game tactic is often employed when you are far behind your competitor. To compete in Backgammon with this tactic, you need to hold two or more points in table, and to hit a blot (a single piece) late in the game. This technique is more difficult than others to play in Backgammon seeing as it needs careful movement of your pieces and how the chips are relocated is partially the outcome of the dice roll.
