The objective of a Backgammon match is to move your chips around the Backgammon board and pull them from the board faster than your competitor who works just as hard to achieve the same buthowever they move in the opposing direction. Succeeding in a round of Backgammon requires both strategy and luck. Just how far you can shift your checkers is up to the numbers from tossing the dice, and how you shift your checkers are determined by your overall playing plans. Enthusiasts use differing tactics in the different stages of a match dependent on your positions and opponent’s.

The Running Game Plan

The aim of the Running Game technique is to lure all your checkers into your inner board and bear them off as fast as you can. This technique focuses on the speed of shifting your chips with little or no time spent to hit or barricade your opponent’s pieces. The best scenario to use this plan is when you believe you can shift your own pieces quicker than the opposing player does: when 1) you have a fewer checkers on the game board; 2) all your chips have past your opponent’s checkers; or 3) the opposing player doesn’t employ the hitting or blocking plan.

The Blocking Game Plan

The primary aim of the blocking plan, by the name, is to block your competitor’s checkers, temporarily, not fretting about shifting your pieces rapidly. Once you have established the blockade for the opponent’s movement with a couple of checkers, you can shift your other checkers rapidly off the game board. The player will need to also have a clear strategy when to back off and shift the pieces that you employed for the blockade. The game gets intriguing when the opponent uses the same blocking strategy.
