• The Essential Facts of Backgammon Tactics – Part 2

    As we dicussed in the last article, Backgammon is a game of talent and good luck. The aim is to shift your pieces carefully around the board to your home board while at the same time your opposition shifts their chips toward their home board in the opposite direction. With opposing player checkers shifting in opposite directions there is going to be conflict and the need for specific strategies at particular times. Here are the two final Backgammon plans to finish off your game.

    The Priming Game Strategy

    If the purpose of the blocking plan is to slow down the opponent to move their pieces, the Priming Game strategy is to absolutely barricade any activity of the opponent by assembling a prime – ideally 6 points in a row. The opponent’s chips will either get bumped, or end up in a bad position if he/she ever tries to escape the wall. The ambush of the prime can be built anyplace between point two and point eleven in your board. After you have successfully constructed the prime to block the movement of the opponent, the opponent does not even get to roll the dice, that means you move your pieces and roll the dice again. You will be a winner for sure.

    The Back Game Tactic

    The goals of the Back Game tactic and the Blocking Game plan are similar – to hurt your opponent’s positions with hope to improve your chances of winning, however the Back Game tactic relies on alternate techniques to achieve that. The Back Game tactic is often utilized when you’re far behind your competitor. To play Backgammon with this technique, you have to hold 2 or more points in table, and to hit a blot late in the game. This strategy is more challenging than others to use in Backgammon because it requires careful movement of your chips and how the pieces are relocated is partly the outcome of the dice roll.
