The Running Game Strategy

The aim of the Running Game plan is to entice all your chips into your home board and bear them off as fast as you can. This plan focuses on the speed of moving your checkers with no efforts to hit or stop your opponent’s chips. The best time to use this strategy is when you believe you might be able to shift your own chips faster than your opponent does: when 1) you have a fewer chips on the game board; 2) all your chips have moved beyond your competitor’s chips; or 3) your opponent doesn’t use the hitting or blocking tactic.

As soon as you’ve established the blockage for your competitor’s movement with a couple of checkers, you can move your other checkers quickly from the game board. The player will need to also have a clear strategy when to extract and move the chips that you utilized for blocking. The game gets interesting when your competitor utilizes the same blocking strategy.
