As we have dicussed in the previous article, Backgammon is a casino game of skill and luck. The aim is to move your chips carefully around the game board to your inner board and at the same time your opposing player moves their chips toward their inner board in the opposite direction. With opposing player pieces shifting in opposing directions there is going to be conflict and the requirement for particular techniques at particular instances. Here are the 2 final Backgammon plans to finish off your game.

The Priming Game Plan

If the goal of the blocking plan is to hamper the opponents ability to move his chips, the Priming Game strategy is to absolutely barricade any activity of the opposing player by constructing a prime - ideally 6 points in a row. The competitor's pieces will either get hit, or end up in a battered position if he/she ever tries to escape the wall. The trap of the prime can be established anyplace between point two and point 11 in your board. As soon as you have successfully assembled the prime to block the activity of the opponent, your competitor does not even get a chance to roll the dice, that means you shift your chips and toss the dice yet again. You will win the game for sure.

The Back Game Tactic

The goals of the Back Game technique and the Blocking Game technique are similar - to harm your competitor's positions hoping to boost your odds of winning, however the Back Game plan utilizes alternate techniques to do that. The Back Game tactic is commonly employed when you are far behind your competitor. To play Backgammon with this plan, you have to control two or more points in table, and to hit a blot (a single piece) late in the game. This plan is more complex than others to use in Backgammon seeing as it needs careful movement of your checkers and how the checkers are relocated is partially the result of the dice toss.
