The goal of a Backgammon game is to shift your chips around the Backgammon board and pull those pieces from the board faster than your challenger who works just as hard to do the same buthowever they move in the opposite direction. Succeeding in a game of Backgammon requires both strategy and fortune. Just how far you will be able to shift your chips is left to the numbers from tossing a pair of dice, and how you shift your chips are decided on by your overall gambling strategies. Enthusiasts use a number of tactics in the differing parts of a match depending on your positions and opponent’s.

The Running Game Tactic

The aim of the Running Game strategy is to bring all your chips into your inside board and bear them off as quick as you could. This strategy focuses on the speed of moving your chips with little or no efforts to hit or stop your competitor’s pieces. The ideal time to employ this technique is when you think you can move your own checkers a lot faster than your opponent does: when 1) you have a fewer pieces on the game board; 2) all your chips have past your opponent’s pieces; or 3) the opposing player doesn’t use the hitting or blocking strategy.

The Blocking Game Tactic

The primary aim of the blocking plan, by the title, is to block your opponent’s pieces, temporarily, not fretting about shifting your pieces rapidly. As soon as you’ve established the barrier for your opponent’s movement with a couple of chips, you can move your other checkers swiftly from the board. You should also have a clear strategy when to withdraw and move the chips that you used for the blockade. The game gets intriguing when your opposition uses the same blocking strategy.
