Dec 19th, 2019 by Claudia

The goal of a Backgammon match is to move your checkers around the game board and bear them from the board quicker than your competitor who works just as hard to achieve the same buthowever they move in the opposing direction. Succeeding in a game in Backgammon requires both strategy and fortune. How far you can move your pieces is left to the numbers from tossing a pair of dice, and just how you shift your pieces are determined by your overall gambling plans. Players use a number of plans in the differing parts of a match based on your positions and opponent’s.

The Running Game Technique

The aim of the Running Game technique is to entice all your checkers into your inner board and get them off as fast as you can. This strategy concentrates on the pace of shifting your pieces with little or no efforts to hit or barricade your opponent’s checkers. The ideal time to employ this technique is when you believe you might be able to move your own checkers a lot faster than the opposing player does: when 1) you have less checkers on the game board; 2) all your pieces have past your opponent’s chips; or 3) the opposing player doesn’t employ the hitting or blocking strategy.

The Blocking Game Plan

The main goal of the blocking technique, by the title, is to stop your competitor’s pieces, temporarily, not worrying about moving your pieces quickly. Once you have created the barrier for the opponent’s movement with a few chips, you can shift your other pieces swiftly off the game board. The player will need to also have an apparent strategy when to withdraw and shift the pieces that you employed for the blockade. The game gets intriguing when the competitor utilizes the same blocking strategy.
