The goal of a Backgammon game is to shift your chips around the Backgammon board and get those pieces off the game board faster than your opposing player who works just as hard to attempt the same buthowever they move in the opposite direction. Winning a round of Backgammon requires both tactics and good luck. How far you can move your checkers is up to the numbers from tossing a pair of dice, and just how you move your pieces are decided on by your overall playing strategies. Enthusiasts use different strategies in the different stages of a match depending on your positions and opponent’s.

The Running Game Plan

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

The Blocking Game Strategy

The primary aim of the blocking tactic, by the title, is to block the competitor’s chips, temporarily, not fretting about shifting your checkers quickly. Once you have established the blockage for your competitor’s movement with a couple of chips, you can shift your other checkers quickly off the board. The player will need to also have a clear plan when to withdraw and shift the pieces that you used for the blockade. The game becomes intriguing when your competitor uses the same blocking technique.
