January 8th, 2020 by Princess

The objective of a Backgammon game is to shift your pieces around the Backgammon board and pull those pieces from the game board faster than your opponent who works just as hard to do the same buthowever they move in the opposite direction. Winning a game of Backgammon requires both strategy and good luck. How far you can move your chips is left to the numbers from rolling the dice, and the way you move your pieces are decided on by your overall playing plans. Enthusiasts use different strategies in the differing stages of a match based on your positions and opponent’s.

The Running Game Plan

The aim of the Running Game technique is to entice all your pieces into your inner board and bear them off as quick as you could. This strategy concentrates on the speed of advancing your checkers with absolutely no efforts to hit or stop your competitor’s checkers. The best time to employ this tactic is when you believe you can move your own pieces quicker than your opposing player does: when 1) you have a fewer pieces on the game board; 2) all your checkers have moved beyond your competitor’s pieces; or 3) your opposing player does not use the hitting or blocking technique.

The Blocking Game Tactic

The primary goal of the blocking tactic, by the title, is to block your competitor’s checkers, temporarily, not worrying about shifting your checkers quickly. As soon as you’ve created the blockade for your opponent’s movement with a couple of pieces, you can move your other checkers quickly off the board. The player really should also have an apparent strategy when to extract and shift the pieces that you utilized for the blockade. The game gets interesting when the opponent uses the same blocking tactic.
