September 24th, 2020 by Claudia

The aim of a Backgammon match is to shift your pieces around the Backgammon board and pull them from the board quicker than your opposing player who works harder to achieve the same buthowever they move in the opposing direction. Succeeding in a game in Backgammon needsrequires both tactics and fortune. Just how far you will be able to move your pieces is up to the numbers from rolling the dice, and the way you shift your chips are decided on by your overall playing tactics. Players use a number of strategies in the different stages of a match dependent on your positions and opponent’s.

The Running Game Tactic

The aim of the Running Game plan is to lure all your pieces into your inner board and bear them off as fast as you can. This strategy focuses on the pace of advancing your pieces with little or no time spent to hit or block your opponent’s checkers. The best scenario to use this technique is when you think you might be able to shift your own chips quicker than the opponent does: when 1) you have a fewer pieces on the game board; 2) all your pieces have past your opponent’s checkers; or 3) the opponent doesn’t use the hitting or blocking tactic.

The Blocking Game Plan

The main goal of the blocking plan, by its title, is to block the competitor’s checkers, temporarily, not worrying about moving your chips quickly. After you’ve established the blockage for your opponent’s movement with a couple of chips, you can shift your other checkers quickly off the game board. You should also have a clear plan when to extract and move the pieces that you employed for blocking. The game gets intriguing when your opponent utilizes the same blocking strategy.
