The goal of a Backgammon game is to move your pieces around the Backgammon board and pull those pieces from the game board quicker than your opponent who works just as hard to achieve the same buthowever they move in the opposite direction. Winning a game in Backgammon requires both tactics and good luck. Just how far you will be able to shift your pieces is left to the numbers from rolling the dice, and just how you shift your checkers are decided on by your overall playing plans. Enthusiasts use differing tactics in the different stages of a match based on your positions and opponent’s.

The Running Game Strategy

The goal of the Running Game technique is to lure all your chips into your inside board and bear them off as quick as you could. This plan concentrates on the speed of advancing your pieces with little or no efforts to hit or barricade your competitor’s chips. The best time to employ this strategy is when you believe you can shift your own chips a lot faster than your opposing player does: when 1) you have less chips on the game board; 2) all your pieces have past your competitor’s pieces; or 3) the opposing player doesn’t employ the hitting or blocking technique.

The Blocking Game Technique

The primary aim of the blocking technique, by the title, is to stop the opponent’s checkers, temporarily, while not worrying about shifting your pieces rapidly. Once you’ve established the blockage for the opponent’s movement with a few pieces, you can shift your other checkers swiftly from the game board. The player will need to also have a good strategy when to back off and shift the checkers that you utilized for blocking. The game gets intriguing when your competitor utilizes the same blocking tactic.
