The goal of a Backgammon match is to shift your pieces around the game board and get those pieces from the board quicker than your opposing player who works harder to do the same buthowever they move in the opposite direction. Succeeding in a round in Backgammon requires both strategy and luck. Just how far you will be able to move your pieces is up to the numbers from rolling the dice, and how you shift your chips are determined by your overall playing techniques. Players use differing plans 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 entice all your pieces into your home board and bear them off as fast as you can. This tactic focuses on the pace of moving your checkers with absolutely no time spent to hit or stop your competitor’s pieces. The ideal time to employ this strategy is when you think you can shift your own checkers quicker than the opponent does: when 1) you have a fewer chips on the board; 2) all your chips have past your opponent’s checkers; or 3) your opposing player does not use the hitting or blocking strategy.

The Blocking Game Tactic

The primary goal of the blocking technique, by the title, is to stop your opponent’s chips, temporarily, while not worrying about shifting your chips rapidly. After you have created the barrier for the opponent’s movement with a couple of pieces, you can shift your other chips rapidly from the board. You will need to also have an apparent strategy when to extract and shift the chips that you used for the blockade. The game gets interesting when your competitor utilizes the same blocking strategy.
