• The Essential Details of Backgammon Tactics – Part 2

    [ English ]

    As we dicussed in the last article, Backgammon is a game of ability and luck. The aim is to move your pieces carefully around the game board to your inside board and at the same time your opposition moves their pieces toward their inner board in the opposite direction. With competing player chips moving in opposing directions there is bound to be conflict and the need for specific strategies at specific times. Here are the last two Backgammon tactics to complete your game.

    The Priming Game Plan

    If the purpose of the blocking strategy is to hamper the opponents ability to move his pieces, the Priming Game plan is to completely block any movement of the opposing player by constructing a prime – ideally 6 points in a row. The competitor’s checkers will either get bumped, or result a damaged position if she at all tries to leave the wall. The ambush of the prime can be established anyplace between point two and point eleven in your game board. Once you have successfully assembled the prime to stop the movement of the competitor, the opponent doesn’t even get a chance to roll the dice, that means you move your pieces and roll the dice yet again. You’ll win the game for sure.

    The Back Game Strategy

    The aims of the Back Game plan and the Blocking Game plan are very similar – to hurt your opponent’s positions in hope to boost your chances of winning, but the Back Game technique relies on different tactics to achieve that. The Back Game tactic is frequently used when you’re far behind your competitor. To compete 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 plan is more difficult than others to employ in Backgammon seeing as it needs careful movement of your pieces and how the chips are moved is partially the result of the dice roll.
