The aim of a Backgammon match is to move your pieces around the Backgammon board and get them from the board faster than your opposing player who works harder to attempt the same buthowever they move in the opposing direction. Winning a game of Backgammon needsrequires both tactics and good luck. How far you can move your checkers is left to the numbers from rolling the dice, and just how you move your chips are decided on by your overall playing tactics. Enthusiasts use different techniques in the different parts of a game based on your positions and opponent’s.

The Running Game Plan

The goal of the Running Game tactic is to entice all your chips into your home board and get them off as quick as you can. This plan concentrates on the speed of advancing your pieces with little or no time spent to hit or stop your opponent’s pieces. The best time to employ this plan is when you think you might be able to move your own pieces quicker than your opposing player does: when 1) you have less chips on the game board; 2) all your pieces have moved beyond your opponent’s checkers; or 3) your opponent does not employ the hitting or blocking plan.

The Blocking Game Tactic

The main goal of the blocking plan, by the name, is to stop your opponent’s checkers, temporarily, not worrying about moving your checkers quickly. As soon as you have established the blockage for your opponent’s movement with a few chips, you can move your other pieces swiftly from the board. You should also have a clear plan when to withdraw and shift the pieces that you used for the blockade. The game gets interesting when your opposition utilizes the same blocking tactic.
