• The Basics of Backgammon Strategies – Part 2

    As we dicussed in the previous article, Backgammon is a game of skill and pure luck. The goal is to move your pieces carefully around the board to your inside board while at the same time your opponent moves their checkers toward their home board in the opposite direction. With competing player pieces shifting in opposing directions there is going to be conflict and the need for specific strategies at specific times. Here are the two final Backgammon plans to complete your game.

    The Priming Game Strategy

    If the aim of the blocking strategy is to hamper the opponents ability to move their checkers, the Priming Game tactic is to completely stop any movement of the opposing player by creating a prime – ideally 6 points in a row. The competitor’s chips will either get hit, or result a battered position if she ever tries to leave the wall. The ambush of the prime can be built anywhere between point two and point 11 in your board. Once you have successfully built the prime to block the movement of the competitor, your competitor does not even get a chance to toss the dice, and you move your chips and toss the dice yet again. You will be a winner for sure.

    The Back Game Strategy

    The objectives of the Back Game technique and the Blocking Game tactic are very similar – to hurt your opponent’s positions hoping to improve your chances of succeeding, however the Back Game strategy utilizes alternate techniques to achieve that. The Back Game technique is frequently used when you are far behind your competitor. 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 plan is more challenging than others to employ in Backgammon seeing as it requires careful movement of your chips and how the pieces are relocated is partially the outcome of the dice roll.
