• The Essential Details of Backgammon Game Plans – Part 2

    [ English ]

    As we have dicussed in the previous article, Backgammon is a game of skill and pure luck. The goal is to shift your pieces safely around the game board to your inside board and at the same time your opposition moves their pieces toward their inside board in the opposing direction. With opposing player chips heading in opposing directions there is going to be conflict and the requirement for particular tactics at specific times. Here are the two final Backgammon plans to complete your game.

    The Priming Game Strategy

    If the goal of the blocking tactic is to hamper the opponents ability to shift her chips, the Priming Game tactic is to completely barricade any activity of the opposing player 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 she at all tries to escape the wall. The trap of the prime can be built anyplace between point 2 and point 11 in your board. After you’ve successfully constructed the prime to block the movement of your competitor, the opponent does not even get a chance to toss the dice, that means you shift your pieces and roll the dice yet again. You’ll be a winner for sure.

    The Back Game Strategy

    The aims of the Back Game tactic and the Blocking Game tactic are similar – to harm your opponent’s positions hoping to boost your odds of succeeding, but the Back Game strategy relies on seperate tactics to do that. The Back Game strategy is generally employed when you’re far behind your opponent. To participate in Backgammon with this plan, you need to control 2 or more points in table, and to hit a blot (a single piece) late in the game. This technique is more difficult than others to use in Backgammon seeing as it needs careful movement of your checkers and how the pieces are moved is partially the result of the dice toss.
