The Essential Details of Backgammon Game Plans – Part Two

by Erin on December 2nd, 2022

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

The Priming Game Tactic

If the purpose of the blocking tactic is to hamper the opponents ability to move his checkers, the Priming Game plan is to completely barricade any activity of the opponent by assembling a prime – ideally 6 points in a row. The competitor’s pieces will either get bumped, or end up in a damaged position if he/she at all attempts to leave the wall. The ambush of the prime can be established anyplace between point 2 and point eleven in your game board. After you have successfully built the prime to stop the movement of the opponent, the competitor does not even get to toss the dice, and you shift your chips and roll the dice yet again. You will be a winner for sure.

The Back Game Strategy

The objectives of the Back Game technique and the Blocking Game plan are very similar – to harm your opponent’s positions in hope to boost your chances of winning, but the Back Game strategy utilizes seperate techniques to do that. The Back Game plan is generally utilized when you’re far behind your competitor. To participate in Backgammon with this strategy, you have to hold 2 or more points in table, and to hit a blot (a single checker) late in the game. This strategy is more complex than others to use in Backgammon seeing as it requires careful movement of your chips and how the chips are moved is partly the result of the dice roll.
