March 23rd, 2016 by Princess

The objective of a Backgammon match is to shift your chips around the game board and get them from the game board faster than your opponent who works just as hard to achieve the same buthowever they move in the opposing direction. Winning a game of Backgammon requires both strategy and luck. How far you will be able to shift your chips is left to the numbers from rolling a pair of dice, and just how you move your chips are decided on by your overall playing strategies. Players use differing tactics in the differing parts of a match based on your positions and opponent’s.

The Running Game Plan

The goal of the Running Game technique is to entice all your pieces into your inside board and pull them off as quick as you could. This plan concentrates on the pace of moving your pieces with little or no time spent to hit or barricade your competitor’s chips. The ideal scenario to use this plan is when you believe you might be able to move your own checkers a lot faster than your opponent does: when 1) you have less chips on the board; 2) all your chips have past your competitor’s pieces; or 3) your opponent doesn’t use the hitting or blocking tactic.

The Blocking Game Tactic

The main goal of the blocking technique, by the title, is to stop the opponent’s chips, temporarily, not fretting about moving your chips quickly. Once you have established the barrier for the opponent’s movement with a couple of pieces, you can move your other pieces swiftly off the board. The player will need to also have a clear strategy when to withdraw and move the chips that you employed for blocking. The game becomes intriguing when the opponent uses the same blocking technique.
