The Basics of Backgammon Strategies – Part One
August 11th, 2022 by Princess

The goal of a Backgammon game is to move your checkers around the game board and get them off the game board quicker than your competitor who works harder to do the same buthowever they move in the opposite direction. Winning a round of Backgammon requires both tactics and luck. How far you will be able to move your checkers is left to the numbers from rolling a pair of dice, and the way you shift your chips are decided on by your overall playing plans. Enthusiasts use a few tactics in the different parts of a match dependent on your positions and opponent’s.

The Running Game Plan

The goal of the Running Game strategy is to bring all your checkers into your inside board and pull them off as fast as you could. This plan focuses on the speed of advancing your chips with little or no efforts to hit or barricade your competitor’s pieces. The ideal time to use this strategy is when you think you might be able to shift your own chips faster than your opponent does: when 1) you have a fewer chips on the board; 2) all your pieces have past your competitor’s checkers; or 3) your opposing player doesn’t use the hitting or blocking strategy.

The Blocking Game Strategy

The primary aim of the blocking plan, by the name, is to stop your competitor’s chips, temporarily, not worrying about moving your checkers rapidly. After you have created the blockage for your opponent’s movement with a few chips, you can shift your other checkers quickly from the game board. The player really should also have a good strategy when to back off and shift the checkers that you utilized for the blockade. The game becomes interesting when the opponent uses the same blocking strategy.
