The Essential Facts of Backgammon Strategies – Part Two

[ English ]

As we dicussed in the previous article, Backgammon is a casino game of talent and pure luck. The goal is to move your chips carefully around the game board to your inner board and at the same time your opposition moves their pieces toward their home board in the opposite direction. With opposing player pieces shifting in opposing directions there is bound to be conflict and the need for specific tactics at particular times. Here are the last 2 Backgammon strategies to complete your game.

The Priming Game Plan

If the aim of the blocking plan is to hamper the opponents ability to move their chips, the Priming Game strategy is to absolutely barricade any activity of the opposing player 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 she at all tries to escape the wall. The ambush of the prime can be built anyplace between point 2 and point eleven in your half of the board. After you have successfully built the prime to prevent the activity of the competitor, the opponent doesn’t even get a chance to toss the dice, that means you move your chips and toss the dice yet again. You will be a winner for sure.

The Back Game Technique

The objectives of the Back Game technique and the Blocking Game tactic are similar – to hinder your opponent’s positions with hope to better your odds of winning, however the Back Game technique uses seperate techniques to achieve that. The Back Game strategy is generally utilized when you’re far behind your opponent. To compete in Backgammon with this strategy, you need to hold two or more points in table, and to hit a blot (a single piece) late in the game. This strategy is more difficult than others to employ in Backgammon because it needs careful movement of your checkers and how the pieces are moved is partially the result of the dice roll.
