• The Basics of Backgammon Game Plans – Part 2

    As we have dicussed in the last article, Backgammon is a game of talent and pure luck. The goal is to shift your chips safely around the game board to your home board and at the same time your opposition shifts their pieces toward their home board in the opposing direction. With opposing player pieces shifting in opposite directions there is bound to be conflict and the requirement for particular techniques at particular instances. Here are the last 2 Backgammon tactics to round out your game.

    The Priming Game Tactic

    If the aim of the blocking tactic is to slow down the opponent to move her pieces, the Priming Game plan is to absolutely barricade any activity of the opposing player by constructing a prime – ideally 6 points in a row. The competitor’s chips will either get bumped, or end up in a bad position if he at all attempts to leave the wall. The trap of the prime can be established anyplace between point two and point eleven in your game board. As soon as you have successfully assembled the prime to block the movement of your opponent, the competitor doesn’t even get a chance to toss the dice, that means you move your pieces and roll the dice yet again. You’ll win the game for sure.

    The Back Game Tactic

    The goals of the Back Game tactic and the Blocking Game strategy are similar – to harm your competitor’s positions hoping to improve your odds of winning, however the Back Game strategy relies on seperate techniques to do that. The Back Game strategy is commonly employed when you’re far behind your opponent. To compete in Backgammon with this tactic, you have to hold 2 or more points in table, and to hit a blot late in the game. This strategy is more challenging than others to play in Backgammon seeing as it requires careful movement of your pieces and how the checkers are relocated is partly the outcome of the dice roll.
