• The Essential Basics of Backgammon Tactics – Part 2

    As we have dicussed in the previous article, Backgammon is a game of ability and pure luck. The aim is to move your chips safely around the game board to your inside board and at the same time your opposition shifts their chips toward their home board in the opposite direction. With competing player checkers heading in opposing directions there is going to be conflict and the requirement for particular techniques at specific instances. Here are the 2 final Backgammon plans to finish off your game.

    The Priming Game Strategy

    If the purpose of the blocking tactic is to hamper the opponents ability to shift their chips, the Priming Game plan is to absolutely block any activity of the opposing player by creating a prime – ideally 6 points in a row. The opponent’s checkers will either get hit, or result a battered position if he/she at all tries to escape the wall. The ambush of the prime can be established anyplace between point two and point 11 in your game board. After you’ve successfully constructed the prime to prevent the activity of the competitor, the opponent does not even get a chance to toss the dice, that means you shift your chips and roll the dice again. You will win the game for sure.

    The Back Game Plan

    The goals of the Back Game technique and the Blocking Game tactic are similar – to harm your opponent’s positions hoping to boost your chances of winning, but the Back Game strategy uses seperate tactics to achieve that. The Back Game strategy is frequently employed when you’re 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 technique is more complex than others to use in Backgammon seeing as it needs careful movement of your checkers and how the pieces are relocated is partly the result of the dice toss.
