The Essential Facts of Backgammon Game Plans – Part Two

by Erin on October 29th, 2022

As we dicussed in the previous article, Backgammon is a game of skill and luck. The aim is to shift your pieces safely around the game board to your inside board and at the same time your opponent shifts their chips toward their inner board in the opposing direction. With opposing player chips heading in opposite directions there is bound to be conflict and the requirement for specific tactics at particular times. Here are the 2 final Backgammon strategies to complete your game.

The Priming Game Tactic

If the purpose of the blocking plan is to slow down the opponent to shift their pieces, the Priming Game plan is to absolutely barricade any movement of the opposing player by assembling a prime – ideally 6 points in a row. The opponent’s pieces will either get bumped, or result a battered position if he at all tries to escape the wall. The ambush of the prime can be built anywhere between point 2 and point eleven in your game board. As soon as you’ve successfully assembled the prime to stop the movement of the competitor, the competitor does not even get to roll the dice, and you shift your pieces and toss the dice again. You will be a winner for sure.

The Back Game Plan

The aims of the Back Game plan and the Blocking Game technique are very similar – to hurt your competitor’s positions in hope to better your odds of succeeding, however the Back Game plan relies on seperate techniques to do that. The Back Game tactic is frequently used when you’re far behind your competitor. To play Backgammon with this plan, you have to control 2 or more points in table, and to hit a blot late in the game. This strategy is more difficult than others to play in Backgammon seeing as it requires careful movement of your chips and how the pieces are moved is partially the result of the dice roll.
