As we dicussed in the last article, Backgammon is a casino game of ability and luck. The aim is to move your chips carefully around the game board to your inside board and at the same time your opposing player moves their chips toward their inner board in the opposite direction. With competing player pieces shifting in opposite directions there is bound to be conflict and the requirement for particular strategies at specific instances. Here are the two final Backgammon tactics to round out your game.

The Priming Game Plan

If the aim of the blocking plan is to hamper the opponents ability to shift his pieces, the Priming Game strategy is to completely block any activity of the opponent by creating a prime - ideally 6 points in a row. The competitor's checkers will either get bumped, or end up in a damaged position if she ever tries to escape the wall. The trap of the prime can be setup anyplace between point two and point 11 in your game board. Once you've successfully assembled the prime to prevent the movement of your opponent, the opponent does not even get to roll the dice, that means you shift your chips and roll the dice again. You'll be a winner for sure.

The Back Game Strategy

The aims of the Back Game technique and the Blocking Game tactic are very similar - to harm your competitor's positions hoping to boost your odds of winning, but the Back Game tactic utilizes different tactics to achieve that. The Back Game strategy is frequently used when you're far behind your opponent. To participate in Backgammon with this plan, you need 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 employ in Backgammon seeing as it requires careful movement of your checkers and how the pieces are moved is partly the result of the dice toss.
