The goal of a Backgammon match is to shift your pieces around the Backgammon board and bear those pieces off the game board faster than your opponent who works just as hard to attempt the same buthowever they move in the opposite direction. Winning a round of Backgammon requires both strategy and fortune. How far you can move your pieces is up to the numbers from rolling a pair of dice, and the way you shift your chips are determined by your overall gambling plans. Enthusiasts use a few strategies in the differing stages of a game based on your positions and opponent’s.

The Running Game Plan

The aim of the Running Game technique is to entice all your pieces into your inside board and get them off as quick as you can. This technique concentrates on the speed of shifting your checkers with little or no time spent to hit or stop your competitor’s chips. The best scenario to use this strategy is when you believe you might be able to move your own pieces quicker than your opponent does: when 1) you have less checkers on the board; 2) all your checkers have past your opponent’s checkers; or 3) your opposing player doesn’t use the hitting or blocking plan.

The Blocking Game Plan

The main aim of the blocking strategy, by the name, is to block the competitor’s chips, temporarily, while not worrying about moving your chips quickly. After you have established the blockage for the competitor’s movement with a few checkers, you can move your other pieces rapidly off the board. You will need to also have a clear plan when to withdraw and move the chips that you employed for blocking. The game gets intriguing when the opposition utilizes the same blocking strategy.
