The aim of a Backgammon game is to move your checkers around the Backgammon board and pull them off the game board quicker than your opposing player who works just as hard to attempt the same buthowever they move in the opposite direction. Succeeding in a game of Backgammon requires both tactics and good luck. Just how far you can shift your pieces is left to the numbers from rolling a pair of dice, and the way you shift your pieces are determined by your overall gambling tactics. Enthusiasts use different strategies in the differing parts of a game depending on your positions and opponent’s.

The Running Game Plan

The aim of the Running Game plan is to entice all your pieces into your inner board and pull them off as quickly as you could. This tactic concentrates on the pace of advancing your checkers with little or no efforts to hit or block your competitor’s pieces. The best scenario to employ this plan is when you believe you might be able to move your own chips quicker than your opponent does: when 1) you have less pieces on the game board; 2) all your chips have moved beyond your opponent’s pieces; or 3) the opposing player does not employ the hitting or blocking tactic.

The Blocking Game Strategy

The primary aim of the blocking tactic, by its name, is to stop your competitor’s pieces, temporarily, while not worrying about moving your chips rapidly. As soon as you’ve established the blockade for the opponent’s movement with a few checkers, you can move your other pieces swiftly from the board. You should also have an apparent plan when to withdraw and shift the chips that you utilized for the blockade. The game becomes intriguing when the competitor uses the same blocking technique.
