The goal of a Backgammon match is to shift your checkers around the Backgammon board and bear those pieces off the game board quicker than your competitor who works harder to attempt the same buthowever they move in the opposite direction. Winning a round of Backgammon requires both strategy and good luck. How far you will be able to move your checkers is left to the numbers from tossing the dice, and the way you shift your pieces are decided on by your overall gambling tactics. Enthusiasts use a number of tactics in the differing parts of a game based on your positions and opponent’s.

The Running Game Technique

The goal of the Running Game tactic is to lure all your checkers into your home board and get them off as quickly as you can. This tactic concentrates on the speed of advancing your chips with little or no efforts to hit or block your opponent’s chips. The best time to employ this plan is when you think you might be able to shift your own checkers faster than your opposing player does: when 1) you have a fewer checkers on the board; 2) all your chips have past your competitor’s pieces; or 3) the opposing player does not employ the hitting or blocking strategy.

The Blocking Game Strategy

The main goal of the blocking tactic, by the name, is to stop your opponent’s chips, temporarily, not fretting about moving your pieces rapidly. As soon as you have created the blockade for the opponent’s movement with a couple of checkers, you can move your other pieces quickly off the board. The player should also have a clear plan when to withdraw and shift the checkers that you used for blocking. The game gets interesting when your opposition uses the same blocking technique.
