The Essential Basics of Backgammon Game Plans – Part One
February 27th, 2024 by Claudia

The goal of a Backgammon match is to shift your chips around the Backgammon board and bear those pieces off the game board faster than your competitor who works just as hard to do the same buthowever they move in the opposing direction. Winning a round in Backgammon needsrequires both tactics and luck. How far you can shift your chips is left to the numbers from tossing the dice, and how you shift your chips are decided on by your overall playing tactics. Players use differing strategies in the differing parts of a match dependent on your positions and opponent’s.

The Running Game Technique

The goal of the Running Game technique is to entice all your chips into your inner board and bear them off as fast as you could. This strategy focuses on the pace of advancing your chips with little or no time spent to hit or block your opponent’s chips. The ideal scenario to employ this tactic is when you believe you can move your own pieces a lot faster than the opposing player does: when 1) you have less pieces on the board; 2) all your pieces have moved beyond your competitor’s pieces; or 3) your opponent does not employ the hitting or blocking strategy.

The Blocking Game Strategy

The main goal of the blocking plan, by its name, is to block your opponent’s chips, temporarily, not worrying about shifting your chips quickly. After you’ve created the barrier for your opponent’s movement with a couple of checkers, you can move your other chips quickly from the board. You will need to also have a good plan when to extract and move the chips that you utilized for the blockade. The game becomes interesting when the opponent utilizes the same blocking tactic.
