The goal of a Backgammon match is to shift your chips around the Backgammon board and bear them off the game board faster than your opposing player who works just as hard to attempt the same buthowever they move in the opposing direction. Winning a game in Backgammon requires both strategy and fortune. Just how far you will be able to move your chips is up to the numbers from tossing a pair of dice, and just how you move your checkers are determined by your overall gambling plans. Players use differing plans in the differing stages of a match depending on your positions and opponent’s.

The Running Game Technique

The goal of the Running Game tactic is to bring all your chips into your home board and get them off as fast as you can. This strategy focuses on the speed of moving your pieces with no efforts to hit or stop your opponent’s pieces. The best time to employ this tactic is when you think you can shift your own checkers quicker than the opposing player does: when 1) you have less pieces on the board; 2) all your chips have past your competitor’s checkers; or 3) the opposing player does not employ the hitting or blocking plan.

The Blocking Game Plan

The main goal of the blocking tactic, by its title, is to stop your opponent’s pieces, temporarily, while not fretting about moving your chips rapidly. As soon as you have established the blockage for the competitor’s movement with a few chips, you can shift your other pieces swiftly from the game board. You should also have a clear strategy when to extract and move the chips that you employed for blocking. The game gets interesting when your opponent utilizes the same blocking technique.
