The Essential Details of Backgammon Game Plans – Part Two

[ English ]

As we have dicussed in the last article, Backgammon is a casino game of talent and luck. The aim is to shift your checkers safely around the board to your inside board and at the same time your opposition moves their checkers toward their home board in the opposing direction. With opposing player pieces moving in opposite directions there is going to be conflict and the need for specific strategies at specific times. Here are the 2 final Backgammon strategies to round out your game.

The Priming Game Tactic

If the aim of the blocking strategy is to slow down the opponent to move their checkers, 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 opponent’s chips will either get bumped, or result a damaged position if she at all attempts to escape the wall. The ambush of the prime can be established anywhere between point two and point 11 in your half of the board. After you’ve successfully constructed the prime to block the activity of the opponent, the opponent does not even get to toss the dice, and you shift your chips 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 very similar – to hurt your opponent’s positions with hope to improve your odds of winning, but the Back Game tactic utilizes seperate techniques to achieve that. The Back Game tactic is generally used when you’re far behind your competitor. To participate in Backgammon with this strategy, you have to control 2 or more points in table, and to hit a blot (a single checker) late in the game. This strategy is more difficult than others to use in Backgammon seeing as it requires careful movement of your chips and how the pieces are moved is partially the result of the dice toss.
