As we dicussed in the last article, Backgammon is a game of ability and luck. The aim is to shift your pieces safely around the board to your home board while at the same time your opponent shifts their checkers toward their inner board in the opposing direction. With competing player pieces moving in opposite directions there is bound to be conflict and the need for specific techniques at particular times. Here are the two final Backgammon tactics to finish off your game.

The Priming Game Tactic

If the aim of the blocking plan is to hamper the opponents ability to shift her checkers, the Priming Game tactic is to completely barricade any movement of the opponent by assembling a prime - ideally 6 points in a row. The competitor's chips will either get bumped, or result a battered position if she ever tries to leave the wall. The ambush of the prime can be setup anywhere between point two and point eleven in your half of the board. After you've successfully built the prime to stop the activity of your competitor, the opponent doesn't even get to roll the dice, that means you shift your chips and roll the dice yet again. You will be a winner for sure.

The Back Game Tactic

The objectives of the Back Game strategy and the Blocking Game tactic are very similar - to harm your competitor's positions in hope to improve your odds of winning, however the Back Game tactic uses different tactics to do that. The Back Game tactic is frequently used when you are far behind your opponent. To participate in Backgammon with this technique, you have to hold two or more points in table, and to hit a blot late in the game. This plan is more complex than others to play in Backgammon because it requires careful movement of your checkers and how the pieces are relocated is partially the result of the dice toss.
