Succeeding in a game in Backgammon requires both strategy and good luck. How far you will be able to move your chips is up to the numbers from rolling the dice, and how you move your pieces are determined by your overall playing strategies. Enthusiasts use different strategies in the different parts of a match based on your positions and opponent’s.

The Running Game Strategy

The goal of the Running Game tactic is to entice all your pieces into your inner board and pull them off as quickly as you can. This technique focuses on the speed of moving your checkers with no time spent to hit or stop your opponent’s pieces. The best time to employ this technique is when you believe you might be able to shift your own pieces faster than the opposition does: when 1) you have less checkers on the board; 2) all your chips have past your opponent’s checkers; or 3) the opposing player doesn’t use the hitting or blocking plan.

The Blocking Game Technique

The primary aim of the blocking plan, by the title, is to stop the opponent’s pieces, temporarily, while not worrying about shifting your checkers rapidly. As soon as you have created the barrier for your opponent’s movement with a couple of checkers, you can shift your other chips rapidly off the game board. You really should also have a good strategy when to extract and shift the chips that you used for blocking. The game gets intriguing when your opponent utilizes the same blocking strategy.
