Cripes, it has been almost a month!

“You are not enjoying this game”
The statement jolted me out of my concentrated enjoyment. I looked up. I was being stared at angrily.
“Yes I am.” I objected.
“If you were enjoying this, you'd be jumping about and whooping, you are not enjoying this”

In general, in fiction, backstory should only be employed to advance the front story.  For excellence, the concept is almost always required in short stories but is also useful in the broader sweep of a novel.

Example 1. Scene: no backstory. Story momentum intact.
