The aim of a Backgammon match is to move your pieces around the Backgammon board and pull those pieces from the board quicker than your challenger who works just as hard to attempt the same buthowever they move in the opposite direction. Winning a round of Backgammon needsrequires both tactics and fortune. Just how far you will be able to shift your chips is up to the numbers from rolling a pair of dice, and the way you move your chips are decided on by your overall gambling strategies. Players use a number of plans in the differing parts of a game dependent on your positions and opponent’s.

The Running Game Plan

The aim of the Running Game strategy is to entice all your pieces into your home board and pull them off as fast as you could. This tactic focuses on the pace of shifting your checkers with no efforts to hit or block your opponent’s pieces. The best scenario to employ this technique is when you think you can move your own pieces a lot faster than the opposition does: when 1) you have less chips on the game board; 2) all your pieces have past your opponent’s chips; or 3) your opponent does not employ the hitting or blocking strategy.

The Blocking Game Plan

The primary aim of the blocking technique, by its name, is to stop the competitor’s pieces, temporarily, while not fretting about shifting your chips quickly. After you’ve created the blockage for your competitor’s movement with a few pieces, you can move your other chips rapidly from the board. The player will need to also have a good strategy when to extract and move the chips that you employed for the blockade. The game gets interesting when the opponent uses the same blocking technique.
