• The Essential Details of Backgammon Game Plans – Part 2

    [ English ]

    As we have dicussed in the previous article, Backgammon is a game of ability and pure luck. The goal is to move your chips safely around the board to your inside board while at the same time your opponent moves their chips toward their inside board in the opposing direction. With opposing player pieces moving in opposing directions there is bound to be conflict and the need for particular techniques at particular instances. Here are the last 2 Backgammon strategies to round out your game.

    The Priming Game Plan

    If the purpose of the blocking plan is to hamper the opponents ability to shift their pieces, the Priming Game strategy is to completely stop any activity of the opponent by constructing a prime – ideally 6 points in a row. The opponent’s chips will either get hit, or end up in a damaged position if he at all tries to escape 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 activity of the competitor, your competitor doesn’t even get a chance to toss the dice, and you shift your pieces and toss the dice yet again. You will win the game for sure.

    The Back Game Technique

    The goals of the Back Game plan and the Blocking Game tactic are very similar – to harm your competitor’s positions hoping to boost your chances of succeeding, but the Back Game plan uses different techniques to achieve that. The Back Game plan is frequently employed when you’re far behind your competitor. To play Backgammon with this technique, you need to hold two or more points in table, and to hit a blot (a single piece) late in the game. This plan is more complex than others to use in Backgammon seeing as it requires careful movement of your pieces and how the chips are relocated is partly the outcome of the dice toss.
