• The Essential Details of Backgammon Strategies – Part 2

    As we have dicussed in the previous article, Backgammon is a game of talent and good luck. The goal is to shift your chips carefully around the board to your home board and at the same time your opposition shifts their chips toward their inner board in the opposing direction. With competing player chips moving in opposing directions there is going to be conflict and the need for particular strategies at particular times. Here are the last two Backgammon techniques to finish off your game.

    The Priming Game Plan

    If the goal of the blocking tactic is to hamper the opponents ability to shift her pieces, the Priming Game plan is to completely block any activity of the opposing player by building a prime – ideally 6 points in a row. The opponent’s chips will either get bumped, or result a damaged position if he ever attempts to leave the wall. The ambush of the prime can be built anyplace between point two and point eleven in your board. After you have successfully built the prime to prevent the activity of your opponent, your competitor does not even get a chance to toss the dice, that means you move your pieces and roll the dice yet again. You will be a winner for sure.

    The Back Game Strategy

    The objectives of the Back Game strategy and the Blocking Game strategy are similar – to harm your opponent’s positions in hope to improve your chances of succeeding, however the Back Game plan relies on seperate techniques to achieve that. The Back Game strategy is often employed when you’re far behind your opponent. To compete in Backgammon with this tactic, you have to control two or more points in table, and to hit a blot (a single checker) late in the game. This strategy is more difficult than others to employ in Backgammon because it needs careful movement of your chips and how the checkers are moved is partially the outcome of the dice roll.
