As we have dicussed in the previous article, Backgammon is a game of ability and pure luck. The aim is to move your checkers carefully around the board to your inside board and at the same time your opposition moves their chips toward their home board in the opposite direction. With competing player chips shifting in opposite directions there is going to be conflict and the need for particular tactics at specific times. Here are the last 2 Backgammon plans to complete your game.

The Priming Game Strategy

If the aim of the blocking plan is to hamper the opponents ability to shift his pieces, the Priming Game plan is to absolutely stop any movement of the opposing player by building a prime - ideally 6 points in a row. The competitor's chips will either get bumped, or result a battered position if he/she at all tries to leave the wall. The trap of the prime can be setup anywhere between point 2 and point eleven in your board. Once you have successfully constructed the prime to prevent the movement of your opponent, the opponent does not even get a chance to roll the dice, and you shift your chips and toss the dice again. You will win the game for sure.

The Back Game Technique

The goals of the Back Game strategy and the Blocking Game tactic are similar - to harm your competitor's positions with hope to improve your chances of succeeding, however the Back Game plan relies on alternate tactics to achieve that. The Back Game strategy is often employed when you're far behind your competitor. To play Backgammon with this tactic, you have to control 2 or more points in table, and to hit a blot late in the game. This technique is more challenging than others to play in Backgammon seeing as it needs careful movement of your pieces and how the chips are relocated is partially the outcome of the dice roll.
