June 24th, 2021 by Claudia

The aim of a Backgammon match is to move your pieces around the Backgammon board and bear them from the game board faster than your opposing player who works just as hard to achieve the same buthowever they move in the opposite direction. Succeeding in a match in Backgammon requires both tactics and good luck. Just how far you will be able to move your checkers is up to the numbers from rolling a pair of dice, and just how you shift your chips are decided on by your overall gambling techniques. Players use different tactics in the differing stages of a match depending on your positions and opponent’s.

The Running Game Strategy

The aim of the Running Game plan is to bring all your chips into your home board and get them off as fast as you could. This tactic focuses on the speed of shifting your checkers with absolutely no efforts to hit or block your opponent’s chips. The best scenario to use this strategy is when you think you might be able to move your own chips quicker than the opposing player does: when 1) you have less checkers on the board; 2) all your chips have past your competitor’s checkers; or 3) your opposing player does not use the hitting or blocking plan.

The Blocking Game Technique

The primary aim of the blocking technique, by its name, is to stop your opponent’s pieces, temporarily, while not worrying about shifting your checkers quickly. Once you have established the barrier for your competitor’s movement with a couple of chips, you can move your other pieces quickly off the board. You will need to also have a good strategy when to withdraw and shift the checkers that you used for blocking. The game becomes interesting when your opponent utilizes the same blocking strategy.
