June 20th, 2023 by Claudia

The goal of a Backgammon match is to shift your chips around the game board and pull them from the game board faster than your opponent who works just as hard to do the same buthowever they move in the opposite direction. Succeeding in a match of Backgammon requires both tactics and good luck. Just how far you can shift your chips is left to the numbers from rolling a pair of dice, and how you move your chips are determined by your overall gambling strategies. Players use different strategies in the different stages of a match based on your positions and opponent’s.

The Running Game Technique

The aim of the Running Game strategy is to bring all your checkers into your home board and pull them off as fast as you can. This strategy focuses on the pace of shifting your checkers with absolutely no time spent to hit or block your competitor’s checkers. The best scenario to use this tactic is when you think you might be able to shift your own chips faster than your opposing player does: when 1) you have a fewer pieces on the game board; 2) all your pieces have past your competitor’s chips; or 3) the opposing player does not use the hitting or blocking technique.

The Blocking Game Tactic

The primary aim of the blocking technique, by the name, is to stop the competitor’s pieces, temporarily, not worrying about shifting your chips quickly. After you’ve established the blockade for your opponent’s movement with a few pieces, you can shift your other pieces rapidly off the game board. The player will need to also have a clear strategy when to withdraw and shift the pieces that you utilized for the blockade. The game gets intriguing when the opponent utilizes the same blocking tactic.
