As we have dicussed in the last article, Backgammon is a game of ability and good 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 pieces toward their home board in the opposite direction. With opposing player checkers shifting in opposing directions there is going to be conflict and the requirement for specific strategies at particular times. Here are the two final Backgammon techniques to finish off your game.

The Priming Game Plan

If the purpose of the blocking tactic is to slow down the opponent to shift their checkers, the Priming Game plan is to absolutely stop any activity of the opponent 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 ever tries to escape the wall. The ambush of the prime can be established anyplace between point 2 and point eleven in your board. After you have successfully built the prime to stop the movement of the opponent, your opponent does not even get a chance to toss the dice, and you shift your checkers and toss the dice yet again. You will win the game for sure.

The Back Game Strategy

The aims of the Back Game plan and the Blocking Game plan are very similar - to harm your competitor's positions hoping to boost your chances of succeeding, but the Back Game plan utilizes alternate techniques to do that. The Back Game plan is frequently employed when you are far behind your competitor. To participate in Backgammon with this strategy, you have 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 play in Backgammon seeing as it requires careful movement of your checkers and how the pieces are relocated is partially the outcome of the dice toss.
