December 28th, 2021 by Claudia

The aim of a Backgammon game is to move your chips around the game board and get those pieces from the game board quicker than your opposing player who works just as hard to achieve the same buthowever they move in the opposite direction. Winning a match of Backgammon requires both strategy and good luck. How far you will be able to move your pieces is left to the numbers from tossing a pair of dice, and the way you move your checkers are decided on by your overall playing strategies. Enthusiasts use different tactics in the differing parts of a match depending on your positions and opponent’s.

The Running Game Tactic

The goal of the Running Game plan is to lure all your pieces into your home board and bear them off as quickly as you can. This strategy focuses on the pace of moving your pieces with absolutely no time spent to hit or barricade your opponent’s checkers. The best time to employ this strategy is when you believe you might be able to shift your own checkers quicker than the opposing player does: when 1) you have less pieces on the game board; 2) all your chips have past your competitor’s chips; or 3) your opposing player doesn’t use the hitting or blocking technique.

The Blocking Game Technique

The main goal of the blocking strategy, by the name, is to block your opponent’s chips, temporarily, not worrying about moving your pieces quickly. After you’ve established the blockage for your opponent’s movement with a couple of checkers, you can move your other pieces swiftly from the game board. You should also have a good plan when to back off and move the pieces that you used for blocking. The game becomes intriguing when the opponent uses the same blocking technique.
