The goal of a Backgammon game is to shift your checkers around the game board and bear them off the board faster than your competitor who works harder to achieve the same buthowever they move in the opposite direction. Succeeding in a match of Backgammon needsrequires both strategy and luck. Just how far you can shift your chips is up to the numbers from rolling a pair of dice, and how you move your pieces are determined by your overall gambling techniques. Players use different plans in the differing parts of a game depending on your positions and opponent’s.

The Running Game Strategy

The aim of the Running Game technique is to lure all your checkers into your home board and get them off as quick as you can. This tactic concentrates on the speed of advancing your checkers with little or no efforts to hit or stop your opponent’s chips. The ideal time to employ this technique is when you think you can move your own pieces a lot faster than your opponent does: when 1) you have a fewer chips on the board; 2) all your chips have past your competitor’s pieces; or 3) your opponent does not use the hitting or blocking strategy.

The Blocking Game Tactic

The main goal of the blocking strategy, by its name, is to stop the competitor’s checkers, temporarily, while not fretting about moving your pieces rapidly. As soon as you’ve established the blockade for your opponent’s movement with a few chips, you can move your other checkers quickly off the game board. You should also have a clear plan when to withdraw and move the chips that you used for blocking. The game gets interesting when your opposition uses the same blocking strategy.
