The Essential Basics of Backgammon Game Plans – Part 1
February 16th, 2023 by Claudia

The aim of a Backgammon game is to shift your pieces around the game board and bear them off the board faster than your opponent who works harder to achieve the same buthowever they move in the opposite direction. Winning a game in Backgammon requires both tactics and fortune. How far you will be able to move your checkers is up to the numbers from tossing the dice, and just how you shift your chips are decided on by your overall gambling strategies. Players use different plans in the different stages of a game depending on your positions and opponent’s.

The Running Game Plan

The goal of the Running Game plan is to entice all your checkers into your inner board and get them off as quick as you could. This tactic focuses on the speed of advancing your checkers with absolutely no efforts to hit or barricade your opponent’s pieces. The best time to employ this tactic is when you believe you can shift your own pieces quicker than your opponent does: when 1) you have a fewer checkers on the board; 2) all your pieces have moved beyond your opponent’s pieces; or 3) the opponent doesn’t use the hitting or blocking strategy.

The Blocking Game Tactic

The main aim of the blocking tactic, by the title, is to stop your competitor’s chips, temporarily, not worrying about moving your checkers rapidly. After you’ve established the blockage for the opponent’s movement with a couple of pieces, you can shift your other checkers rapidly from the board. You should also have an apparent plan when to back off and shift the pieces that you utilized for blocking. The game gets interesting when your opponent utilizes the same blocking strategy.
