The objective of a Backgammon game is to move your pieces around the game board and get them off the game board quicker than your competitor who works harder to achieve the same buthowever they move in the opposite direction. Winning a match in Backgammon needsrequires both strategy and fortune. Just how far you will be able to shift your checkers is up to the numbers from rolling the dice, and just how you shift your chips are decided on by your overall playing plans. Players use a few tactics in the different stages of a match dependent on your positions and opponent’s.

The Running Game Plan

The goal of the Running Game technique is to lure all your checkers into your inside board and pull them off as fast as you can. This tactic focuses on the speed of shifting your checkers with absolutely no efforts to hit or stop your competitor’s chips. The best scenario to employ this technique is when you think you might be able to shift your own chips faster than the opposition does: when 1) you have a fewer chips on the game board; 2) all your chips have past your competitor’s chips; or 3) the opponent doesn’t employ the hitting or blocking tactic.

The Blocking Game Strategy

The primary aim of the blocking plan, by the name, is to stop the competitor’s chips, temporarily, not worrying about shifting your pieces quickly. After you have created the blockage for the opponent’s movement with a few pieces, you can shift your other pieces quickly off the board. The player should also have a clear plan when to back off and move the pieces that you used for blocking. The game gets intriguing when the opposition uses the same blocking strategy.
