• The Essential Facts of Backgammon Strategies – Part 2

    [ English ]

    As we dicussed in the last article, Backgammon is a casino game of talent and luck. The goal is to shift your checkers carefully around the board to your inside board while at the same time your opposition moves their checkers toward their inside board in the opposite direction. With opposing player chips shifting in opposite directions there is bound to be conflict and the need for specific techniques at particular instances. Here are the 2 final Backgammon strategies to complete your game.

    The Priming Game Plan

    If the purpose of the blocking plan is to slow down the opponent to shift their checkers, the Priming Game strategy is to completely barricade any movement of the opponent by building a prime – ideally 6 points in a row. The opponent’s pieces will either get bumped, or end up in a damaged position if he/she ever attempts to escape the wall. The ambush of the prime can be established anyplace between point 2 and point eleven in your half of the board. As soon as you’ve successfully built the prime to prevent the movement of the opponent, the competitor does not even get to roll the dice, and you shift your chips and roll the dice again. You will win the game for sure.

    The Back Game Strategy

    The objectives of the Back Game tactic and the Blocking Game strategy are similar – to hinder your opponent’s positions in hope to boost your odds of winning, but the Back Game plan uses seperate techniques to do that. The Back Game tactic is frequently used when you are far behind your competitor. To play Backgammon with this strategy, you have to hold 2 or more points in table, and to hit a blot (a single piece) late in the game. This tactic is more complex than others to employ in Backgammon because it needs careful movement of your chips and how the chips are relocated is partly the outcome of the dice roll.
