As we dicussed in the last article, Backgammon is a casino game of skill and pure luck. The aim is to move your pieces safely around the board to your inside board and at the same time your opposing player shifts their chips toward their home board in the opposing direction. With opposing player chips moving in opposite directions there is bound to be conflict and the need for particular tactics at specific instances. Here are the 2 final Backgammon tactics to finish off your game.

The Priming Game Tactic

If the goal of the blocking strategy is to slow down the opponent to shift her checkers, the Priming Game plan is to completely block any activity of the opposing player by assembling a prime - ideally 6 points in a row. The opponent's pieces will either get bumped, or result a bad position if he/she at all attempts to escape the wall. The trap of the prime can be setup anyplace between point two and point eleven in your board. After you have successfully assembled the prime to stop the movement of the competitor, your opponent doesn't even get a chance to roll the dice, and you shift your checkers and roll the dice again. You'll be a winner for sure.

The Back Game Technique

The objectives of the Back Game tactic and the Blocking Game tactic are similar - to hinder your opponent's positions in hope to improve your odds of winning, but the Back Game technique uses seperate techniques to do that. The Back Game technique is often used when you are far behind your opponent. To play Backgammon with this technique, you have to control two or more points in table, and to hit a blot late in the game. This plan is more challenging than others to play in Backgammon because it needs careful movement of your checkers and how the checkers are relocated is partly the result of the dice toss.
