June 22nd, 2023 by Claudia

The aim of a Backgammon game is to shift your checkers around the game board and pull those pieces from the game board faster than your opponent who works just as hard to achieve the same buthowever they move in the opposite direction. Winning a round of Backgammon requires both strategy and fortune. Just how far you will be able to move your checkers is up to the numbers from tossing a pair of dice, and just how you move your checkers are decided on by your overall playing plans. Enthusiasts use differing plans in the differing stages of a game depending on your positions and opponent’s.

The Running Game Tactic

The aim of the Running Game strategy is to bring all your pieces into your inner board and get them off as fast as you can. This technique concentrates on the pace of moving your checkers with no time spent to hit or barricade your opponent’s checkers. The ideal scenario to employ this tactic is when you believe you might be able to move your own pieces quicker than the opposition does: when 1) you have less pieces on the game board; 2) all your pieces have moved beyond your competitor’s chips; or 3) your opponent does not employ the hitting or blocking strategy.

The Blocking Game Plan

The primary aim of the blocking strategy, by its name, is to block the competitor’s checkers, temporarily, while not worrying about shifting your checkers quickly. As soon as you have established the blockade for the competitor’s movement with a couple of chips, you can shift your other checkers rapidly off the board. The player will need to also have a good plan when to extract and shift the checkers that you used for blocking. The game gets intriguing when the opposition utilizes the same blocking tactic.
