The aim of a Backgammon match is to move your checkers around the game board and bear those pieces from the game board quicker than your competitor who works just as hard to achieve the same buthowever they move in the opposing direction. Succeeding in a game in Backgammon requires both tactics and good luck. Just how far you will be able to shift your pieces is left to the numbers from tossing the dice, and the way you shift your chips are determined by your overall playing tactics. Players use a number of strategies in the differing parts of a match based on your positions and opponent’s.

The Running Game Technique

The goal of the Running Game plan is to bring all your pieces into your inside board and get them off as quickly as you can. This tactic focuses on the pace of shifting your chips with no efforts to hit or barricade your competitor’s pieces. The best scenario to employ this strategy is when you believe you might be able to shift your own pieces faster than the opponent does: when 1) you have less chips on the board; 2) all your checkers have past your opponent’s pieces; or 3) the opponent doesn’t employ the hitting or blocking tactic.

The Blocking Game Plan

The primary goal of the blocking technique, by its title, is to stop your opponent’s checkers, temporarily, not fretting about shifting your chips quickly. After you have created the barrier for the competitor’s movement with a few checkers, you can move your other pieces rapidly from the game board. You should also have an apparent plan when to withdraw and shift the pieces that you employed for blocking. The game gets intriguing when the opposition utilizes the same blocking tactic.
