As we dicussed in the previous article, Backgammon is a game of talent and good luck. The aim is to shift your pieces safely around the board to your inner board and at the same time your opponent shifts their checkers toward their inside board in the opposite direction. With opposing player checkers shifting in opposite directions there is bound to be conflict and the requirement for specific techniques at specific times. Here are the last two Backgammon plans to round out your game.

The Priming Game Strategy

If the aim of the blocking strategy is to hamper the opponents ability to move his checkers, the Priming Game strategy is to absolutely block any movement of the opponent by constructing a prime - ideally 6 points in a row. The competitor's pieces will either get bumped, or result a damaged position if he/she at all attempts to leave the wall. The trap of the prime can be built anyplace between point 2 and point eleven in your board. After you've successfully built the prime to block the movement of your competitor, the opponent doesn't even get a chance to roll the dice, that means you shift your chips and toss the dice again. You'll be a winner for sure.

The Back Game Plan

The aims of the Back Game tactic and the Blocking Game technique are very similar - to hinder your opponent's positions in hope to improve your odds of winning, however the Back Game plan utilizes different tactics to achieve that. The Back Game strategy is frequently employed when you're far behind your opponent. To participate in Backgammon with this strategy, you need to hold two or more points in table, and to hit a blot (a single piece) late in the game. This plan is more challenging than others to use in Backgammon seeing as it requires careful movement of your checkers and how the checkers are moved is partially the result of the dice toss.
