• The Essential Basics of Backgammon Tactics – Part 2

    As we dicussed in the previous article, Backgammon is a casino game of ability and pure luck. The goal is to shift your checkers carefully around the board to your inside board and at the same time your opposing player moves their pieces toward their inside board in the opposite direction. With competing player pieces moving in opposing directions there is going to be conflict and the requirement for particular techniques at specific instances. Here are the last 2 Backgammon techniques to finish off your game.

    The Priming Game Tactic

    If the purpose of the blocking plan is to hamper the opponents ability to shift his pieces, the Priming Game strategy is to absolutely stop any activity of the opponent by creating a prime – ideally 6 points in a row. The opponent’s chips will either get hit, or end up in a bad position if he ever attempts to leave the wall. The ambush of the prime can be built anywhere between point 2 and point eleven in your game board. As soon as you have successfully assembled the prime to stop the activity of your opponent, your competitor does not even get a chance to roll the dice, that means you move your checkers and roll the dice yet again. You’ll win the game for sure.

    The Back Game Technique

    The objectives of the Back Game technique and the Blocking Game technique are similar – to hurt your competitor’s positions hoping to boost your chances of winning, but the Back Game technique utilizes seperate techniques to achieve that. The Back Game strategy is often used when you are far behind your opponent. To participate in Backgammon with this strategy, you need to hold 2 or more points in table, and to hit a blot (a single checker) late in the game. This plan is more challenging than others to employ in Backgammon because it needs careful movement of your pieces and how the chips are relocated is partially the outcome of the dice toss.
