As we have dicussed in the previous article, Backgammon is a game of talent and pure luck. The aim is to shift your pieces safely around the game board to your inner board and at the same time your opponent moves their checkers toward their home board in the opposite direction. With opposing player chips shifting in opposing directions there is going to be conflict and the need for specific strategies at specific times. Here are the last 2 Backgammon techniques to complete your game.

The Priming Game Strategy

If the goal of the blocking tactic is to hamper the opponents ability to move their pieces, the Priming Game plan is to completely barricade any movement of the opposing player by creating a prime - ideally 6 points in a row. The opponent's checkers will either get hit, or result a damaged position if he/she ever tries to escape the wall. The trap of the prime can be built anywhere between point two and point eleven in your board. As soon as you have successfully assembled the prime to block the activity of your competitor, your competitor does not even get to toss the dice, and you shift your pieces and roll the dice again. You'll win the game for sure.

The Back Game Technique

The objectives of the Back Game strategy and the Blocking Game strategy are similar - to harm your opponent's positions in hope to improve your chances of succeeding, but the Back Game plan relies on different tactics to do that. The Back Game technique is often employed when you are far behind your opponent. To participate in Backgammon with this plan, you need to control 2 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 seeing as it needs careful movement of your chips and how the checkers are relocated is partially the result of the dice toss.
