The aim of a Backgammon match is to shift your pieces around the game board and pull those pieces off the board faster than your opposing player who works just as hard to achieve the same buthowever they move in the opposite direction. Winning a round in Backgammon requires both tactics and luck. Just how far you will be able to shift your chips is up to the numbers from rolling a pair of dice, and just how you move your pieces are determined by your overall playing plans. Players use differing tactics in the different parts of a game depending on your positions and opponent’s.

The Running Game Technique

The goal of the Running Game strategy is to bring all your checkers into your home board and pull them off as fast as you can. This tactic focuses on the speed of advancing your checkers with little or no time spent to hit or barricade your opponent’s chips. The best scenario to use this technique is when you believe you can move your own chips faster than your opposition does: when 1) you have less checkers on the game board; 2) all your chips have moved beyond your opponent’s pieces; or 3) the opponent doesn’t employ the hitting or blocking plan.

The Blocking Game Strategy

The main goal of the blocking strategy, by its name, is to block the opponent’s pieces, temporarily, while not fretting about shifting your checkers quickly. As soon as you’ve established the barrier for your opponent’s movement with a couple of checkers, you can move your other checkers quickly from the game board. You really should also have a good plan when to back off and move the checkers that you employed for the blockade. The game gets intriguing when your competitor utilizes the same blocking tactic.
