As we have dicussed in the last article, Backgammon is a game of skill and pure luck. The aim is to move your checkers carefully around the game board to your inner board while at the same time your opposing player shifts their checkers toward their inner board in the opposite direction. With competing player pieces heading in opposing directions there is bound to be conflict and the requirement for particular tactics at particular times. Here are the 2 final Backgammon strategies to complete your game.

The Priming Game Strategy

If the purpose of the blocking strategy is to slow down the opponent to move his pieces, the Priming Game plan is to completely stop any movement of the opponent by assembling a prime - ideally 6 points in a row. The opponent's checkers will either get bumped, or result a battered position if she at all attempts to escape the wall. The ambush of the prime can be established anywhere between point 2 and point eleven in your half of the board. As soon as you've successfully constructed the prime to stop the movement of your opponent, your competitor doesn't even get a chance to toss the dice, that means you shift your chips and roll the dice yet again. You'll be a winner for sure.

The Back Game Strategy

The goals of the Back Game plan and the Blocking Game strategy are very similar - to harm your opponent's positions hoping to boost your chances of succeeding, but the Back Game tactic utilizes seperate tactics to do that. The Back Game strategy is frequently employed when you are far behind your opponent. 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 tactic is more complex than others to employ in Backgammon seeing as it requires careful movement of your checkers and how the pieces are moved is partially the result of the dice roll.
