The objective of a Backgammon game is to move your chips around the game board and pull them off the game board quicker than your challenger who works just as hard to attempt the same buthowever they move in the opposing direction. Succeeding in a round of Backgammon requires both tactics and fortune. Just how far you will be able to shift your chips is left to the numbers from tossing the dice, and how you shift your chips are determined by your overall playing tactics. Players use different plans in the different parts of a game based on your positions and opponent’s.

The Running Game Plan

The aim of the Running Game plan is to bring all your checkers into your home board and bear them off as quickly as you can. This technique concentrates on the speed of moving your checkers with little or no time spent to hit or stop your competitor’s pieces. The best scenario to employ this plan is when you think you might be able to shift your own chips faster than your opposing player does: when 1) you have a fewer pieces on the game board; 2) all your pieces have past your competitor’s checkers; or 3) the opponent does not employ the hitting or blocking strategy.

The Blocking Game Plan

The primary goal of the blocking technique, by the name, is to stop the opponent’s pieces, temporarily, while not fretting about shifting your pieces quickly. After you have created the blockage for your competitor’s movement with a few pieces, you can shift your other chips quickly from the game board. The player will need to also have a clear strategy when to extract and shift the chips that you utilized for blocking. The game becomes intriguing when the competitor utilizes the same blocking strategy.
