The goal of a Backgammon match is to shift your pieces around the game board and pull them off the board quicker than your challenger who works harder to achieve the same buthowever they move in the opposite direction. Succeeding in a round of Backgammon requires both strategy and luck. Just how far you will be able to move your chips is up to the numbers from rolling a pair of dice, and just how you move your checkers are determined by your overall gambling plans. Players use a number of plans in the different stages of a match dependent on your positions and opponent’s.

The Running Game Technique

The goal of the Running Game strategy is to entice all your pieces into your home board and bear them off as fast as you can. This technique concentrates on the pace of shifting your checkers with little or no efforts to hit or barricade your opponent’s checkers. The best scenario to use this plan is when you think you can move your own checkers faster than the opposing player does: when 1) you have a fewer chips on the board; 2) all your checkers have past your opponent’s pieces; or 3) the opponent does not use the hitting or blocking technique.

The Blocking Game Tactic

The primary goal of the blocking plan, by the name, is to stop your competitor’s pieces, temporarily, while not worrying about moving your checkers quickly. Once you’ve created the barrier for your opponent’s movement with a couple of checkers, you can move your other chips quickly from the board. You should also have a good strategy when to extract and shift the chips that you employed for the blockade. The game becomes interesting when the competitor utilizes the same blocking tactic.
