The Essential Facts of Backgammon Tactics – Part Two

As we have dicussed in the last article, Backgammon is a game of skill and luck. The aim is to shift your chips safely around the game board to your home board while at the same time your opposing player moves 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 strategies at particular times. Here are the last 2 Backgammon tactics to complete your game.

The Priming Game Tactic

If the goal of the blocking tactic is to slow down the opponent to move their chips, the Priming Game tactic is to completely stop any movement of the opponent by assembling a prime – ideally 6 points in a row. The opponent’s pieces will either get bumped, or result a bad position if she at all tries to escape the wall. The ambush of the prime can be established anywhere between point two and point eleven in your half of the board. As soon as you’ve successfully built the prime to prevent the movement of the opponent, the opponent does not even get to roll the dice, and you move your checkers and roll the dice yet again. You will be a winner for sure.

The Back Game Technique

The objectives of the Back Game tactic and the Blocking Game strategy are very similar – to hinder your competitor’s positions in hope to boost your odds of succeeding, however the Back Game technique relies on seperate techniques to do that. The Back Game technique is generally utilized when you’re far behind your competitor. To participate in Backgammon with this tactic, you need to control two or more points in table, and to hit a blot late in the game. This technique is more difficult than others to employ in Backgammon seeing as it needs careful movement of your pieces and how the chips are moved is partly the outcome of the dice toss.
