There are plenty of combinations for any strategy, when it comes to game playing.  Hence, many computer programs that are designed to play the best backgammon game make use of a neural network system to forecast the possible outcomes of each move in the game. It is beyond the limit of humans to predict all the probable results of a move. However, there are some strategies that can help increase your chance of success in Backgammon game.

Backgammon game allows you to use two weapons against your opponent. Remember your opponent can also use those weapons against you. Primes is one of the weapons. They are spaces where your opponent cannot go, as you have some checkers on those spaces. If you are able to set up six primes in a row, you can block your opponent behind those primes, so that he cannot get out. Hitting blots are the next weapon. If your opponent leaves one piece on a point, it is called a blot. You can send the piece back to the bar by hitting it.

Hitting a blot in the home board of your opponent allows you to set him back. You can use the two weapons together as well. Filling your home board with primes and hitting your opponent can give you more benefits. It is also worth to make moves in a way that your opponent cannot bring the piece in from the bar.

The most crucial thing to remember is that your opponent has the same weapons and can use it against you. Hence, you need to be very careful to note when and where you leave the blots. If you leave blots in or near your home board, when the opponent’s checker is nearby, it can change the result of the game altogether. Your chance of getting success may turn to be a dead loss. In the backgammon game, it is important to make attempts to avoid getting stuck behind blocks of primes of the opponent.

If you get stuck behind block of primes, you can still play what is known as back game. Organize your home board carefully, so that you can have primes and not blots. Wait until your opponent leave a blot for you. If you hit the blot, it may help you get enough time to get your checker back to your home board. This in turn increases your chance of winning.

Though the back game seems to be an appealing one, it is better to avoid playing the backgammon game in that way. Backgammon is for serious gamblers. Losing the game may lead you to stand either by a gammon or backgammon. Once your opponent has brought the entire checkers into their home board, you cannot guarantee that he will leave a blot. The chances are very less, if you are a few spaces into the home board. Similarly, if you have a single checker, the opponent may put you back on the bar over and again, blocking your chance to play at all.

One of the important tips is not to hit every blot while playing backgammon game. If you have blots in your home board, the chances are more that you lose by hitting every blot of your opponent. Hit the blot only if you have confidence that it will do well for you rather than bad.
