The objective of a Backgammon match is to move your checkers around the Backgammon board and pull them from the board faster than your opponent who works harder to achieve the same buthowever they move in the opposite direction. Winning a match in Backgammon needsrequires both strategy and luck. How far you will be able to move your chips is up to the numbers from tossing a pair of dice, and how you shift your checkers are determined by your overall gambling tactics. Enthusiasts use a number of tactics in the differing stages of a game depending on your positions and opponent’s.

The Running Game Tactic

The goal of the Running Game strategy is to bring all your chips into your home board and bear them off as quickly as you can. This plan focuses on the pace of shifting your chips with little or no efforts to hit or block your competitor’s chips. The ideal scenario to employ this strategy is when you believe you can shift your own pieces quicker than your opposing player does: when 1) you have less checkers on the board; 2) all your chips have past your opponent’s chips; or 3) your opponent does not employ the hitting or blocking plan.

The Blocking Game Tactic

The main goal of the blocking tactic, by the title, is to block the competitor’s pieces, temporarily, not worrying about shifting your pieces rapidly. As soon as you have created the blockade for the opponent’s movement with a few pieces, you can move your other checkers swiftly off the board. You really should also have a clear plan when to withdraw and move the chips that you used for the blockade. The game becomes interesting when the competitor uses the same blocking tactic.
