• The Essential Details of Backgammon Game Plans – Part 2

    As we dicussed in the previous article, Backgammon is a casino game of ability and good luck. The aim is to shift your chips carefully around the board to your inner board and at the same time your opponent moves their chips toward their home board in the opposite direction. With opposing player pieces heading in opposing directions there is going to be conflict and the need for particular techniques at particular instances. Here are the two final Backgammon strategies to complete your game.

    The Priming Game Plan

    If the goal of the blocking plan is to slow down the opponent to move her checkers, the Priming Game tactic is to completely block any activity of the opposing player by constructing a prime – ideally 6 points in a row. The opponent’s chips will either get bumped, or end up in a bad position if he/she at all attempts to leave the wall. The trap of the prime can be built anywhere between point 2 and point eleven in your board. Once you have successfully built the prime to block the activity of the opponent, your competitor does not even get a chance to roll the dice, that means you move your chips and roll the dice again. You’ll win the game for sure.

    The Back Game Plan

    The aims of the Back Game technique and the Blocking Game technique are similar – to harm your competitor’s positions hoping to boost your chances of winning, but the Back Game tactic uses seperate techniques to achieve that. The Back Game plan is frequently employed when you are far behind your opponent. To participate in Backgammon with this plan, you have to hold two or more points in table, and to hit a blot (a single checker) late in the game. This technique is more difficult than others to play in Backgammon because it requires careful movement of your pieces and how the chips are relocated is partly the result of the dice toss.
