The aim of a Backgammon match is to shift your pieces around the Backgammon board and bear them from the game board quicker than your challenger who works harder to do the same buthowever they move in the opposing direction. Succeeding in a game of Backgammon requires both strategy and good luck. Just how far you can move your chips is up to the numbers from tossing a pair of dice, and how you shift your chips are decided on by your overall gambling plans. Players use a number of tactics in the different parts of a game depending on your positions and opponent’s.

The Running Game Strategy

The goal of the Running Game strategy is to entice all your pieces into your inside board and bear them off as fast as you can. This strategy concentrates on the pace of advancing your chips with little or no time spent to hit or block your opponent’s checkers. The ideal scenario to employ this technique is when you believe you can shift your own pieces faster than your opposing player does: when 1) you have a fewer pieces on the board; 2) all your pieces have past your competitor’s checkers; or 3) the opponent does not use the hitting or blocking strategy.

The Blocking Game Tactic

The main aim of the blocking plan, by its name, is to block your competitor’s chips, temporarily, while not worrying about moving your chips quickly. As soon as you’ve established the blockage for the competitor’s movement with a few chips, you can move your other pieces swiftly off the game board. You will need to also have a good strategy when to extract and shift the checkers that you employed for blocking. The game becomes interesting when the competitor utilizes the same blocking technique.
