As we dicussed in the last article, Backgammon is a casino game of skill and good luck. The aim is to shift your pieces carefully around the board to your home board and at the same time your opposing player shifts their pieces toward their home board in the opposite direction. With opposing player pieces shifting in opposite directions there is going to be conflict and the need for particular tactics at specific instances. Here are the 2 final Backgammon techniques to round out your game.

The Priming Game Strategy

If the aim of the blocking strategy is to slow down the opponent to shift his chips, the Priming Game strategy is to absolutely block any activity of the opposing player by building a prime - ideally 6 points in a row. The competitor's pieces will either get hit, or end up in a battered position if he/she at all tries to leave the wall. The trap of the prime can be setup anyplace between point 2 and point eleven in your half of the board. As soon as you've successfully built the prime to block the movement of your competitor, the opponent does not even get to toss the dice, and you move your pieces and roll the dice again. You'll be a winner for sure.

The Back Game Plan

The objectives of the Back Game strategy and the Blocking Game tactic are similar - to harm your competitor's positions hoping to better your chances of succeeding, however the Back Game tactic uses seperate techniques to do that. The Back Game plan is often utilized when you are far behind your opponent. To play Backgammon with this plan, you have to hold 2 or more points in table, and to hit a blot late in the game. This technique is more complex than others to play in Backgammon seeing as it requires careful movement of your pieces and how the pieces are moved is partially the result of the dice roll.
