December 3rd, 2018 by Princess

The goal of a Backgammon match is to shift your chips around the game board and bear them off the board quicker than your competitor who works harder to achieve the same buthowever they move in the opposite direction. Succeeding in a match of Backgammon requires both strategy and luck. How far you will be able to move your checkers is up to the numbers from rolling a pair of dice, and how you shift your chips are determined by your overall playing strategies. Players use a few strategies in the differing stages of a match depending on your positions and opponent’s.

The Running Game Plan

The goal of the Running Game tactic is to lure all your chips into your inside board and get them off as quick as you could. This strategy concentrates on the pace of advancing your checkers with little or no time spent to hit or block your competitor’s chips. The ideal scenario to employ this technique is when you believe you might be able to move your own checkers quicker than your opponent does: when 1) you have a fewer checkers on the board; 2) all your checkers have moved beyond your competitor’s pieces; or 3) your opposing player does not employ the hitting or blocking technique.

The Blocking Game Tactic

The primary goal of the blocking strategy, by the name, is to block your competitor’s chips, temporarily, not worrying about moving your checkers rapidly. Once you’ve created the blockage for the competitor’s movement with a couple of chips, you can move your other pieces swiftly from the game board. You should also have a good plan when to back off and shift the pieces that you used for the blockade. The game becomes interesting when the opponent utilizes the same blocking technique.
