February 16th, 2024 by Claudia

The goal of a Backgammon game is to move your checkers around the game board and bear those pieces off the game board faster than your competitor who works harder to attempt the same buthowever they move in the opposite direction. Winning a game in Backgammon needsrequires both strategy and fortune. How far you will be able to shift your pieces is up to the numbers from tossing the dice, and just how you move your pieces are determined by your overall playing strategies. Players use different tactics in the different stages of a game based on your positions and opponent’s.

The Running Game Plan

The goal of the Running Game plan is to bring all your chips into your inner board and pull them off as quick as you can. This tactic focuses on the pace of moving your pieces with no efforts to hit or barricade your opponent’s checkers. The ideal scenario to use this strategy is when you think you might be able to move your own checkers faster than your opposing player does: when 1) you have a fewer pieces on the board; 2) all your pieces have moved beyond your competitor’s pieces; or 3) your opposing player does not employ the hitting or blocking strategy.

The Blocking Game Tactic

The primary aim of the blocking technique, by the title, is to stop your competitor’s checkers, temporarily, not worrying about moving your pieces quickly. After you’ve created the blockade for the opponent’s movement with a few pieces, you can shift your other checkers quickly off the board. You will need to also have a clear plan when to withdraw and shift the pieces that you used for blocking. The game becomes intriguing when your competitor uses the same blocking strategy.
