Dick: Hi! I am Dick and today we are introducing you to the game of backgammon. We would like to look at some things you should be thinking about when you are playing the end game and a priming game. A large block of points in backgammon is so important that its own name. It's called a Prime and if you have six point in a row it is called a full prime, if you have say only five points, it's still called the a partial prime, but your end goal in the priming game is to ideally build a full prime in front of your opponents checkers.
Note even if your opponent were at the base of the prime, there is no number because this is six away, there is no number on the dice that gets these checkers over this prime and so these checkers are lot back here until blue can bear in an advance and note blue can, we can his or her position back here because the offensive position is so good over here. So basically the goal then of a priming game is to block in your opponents checkers by building full prime or is close to a full prime as you can.
Part of it is taken away it's called a broken prime but even broken primes can be very powerful. Next we will look at the opening rolls that might get you into a priming games situation.
