The aim of a Backgammon game is to shift your checkers around the Backgammon board and bear them off the board quicker than your opponent who works just as hard to attempt the same buthowever they move in the opposite direction. Succeeding in a game of Backgammon requires both strategy and luck. How far you will be able to shift your pieces is left to the numbers from tossing the dice, and just how you shift your pieces are decided on by your overall playing strategies. Players use a few plans in the differing stages of a match depending on your positions and opponent’s.

The Running Game Plan

The aim of the Running Game plan is to bring all your chips into your home board and get them off as quickly as you can. This technique focuses on the speed of advancing your checkers with absolutely no time spent to hit or barricade your competitor’s checkers. The ideal time to employ this tactic is when you believe you might be able to shift your own chips faster than the opposing player does: when 1) you have a fewer chips on the game board; 2) all your pieces have past your opponent’s pieces; or 3) the opposing player does not employ the hitting or blocking strategy.

The Blocking Game Strategy

The primary goal of the blocking plan, by the title, is to block your opponent’s pieces, temporarily, not worrying about shifting your checkers rapidly. After you have created the barrier for the opponent’s movement with a few chips, you can shift your other chips swiftly from the game board. You should also have a clear plan when to withdraw and shift the chips that you utilized for the blockade. The game becomes intriguing when the opponent utilizes the same blocking tactic.
