Enthusiasts use different techniques in the different parts of a game based on your positions and opponent’s.

The Running Game Technique

The goal of the Running Game tactic is to entice all your pieces into your inside board and bear them off as quickly as you can. This strategy focuses on the pace of advancing your chips with little or no time spent to hit or block your opponent’s checkers. The best scenario to employ this plan is when you believe you can move your own chips a lot faster than your opposing player does: when 1) you have less checkers on the board; 2) all your chips have past your opponent’s checkers; or 3) the opponent doesn’t use the hitting or blocking strategy.

The Blocking Game Plan

The main goal of the blocking technique, by its title, is to stop the competitor’s pieces, temporarily, not worrying about shifting your pieces rapidly. As soon as you have established the blockade for the competitor’s movement with a few checkers, you can move your other chips swiftly off the board. The player really should also have a good plan when to withdraw and move the checkers that you utilized for blocking. The game gets interesting when your competitor uses the same blocking technique.
