Winning a round of Backgammon needsrequires both tactics and good luck. Just how far you can shift your pieces is up to the numbers from rolling the dice, and how you move your checkers are decided on by your overall gambling techniques. Enthusiasts use different strategies in the different stages of a game dependent on your positions and opponent’s.

The Running Game Strategy

The goal of the Running Game strategy is to entice all your pieces into your inside board and get them off as fast as you could. This tactic concentrates on the speed of moving your checkers with little or no efforts to hit or stop your opponent’s chips. The ideal time to use this strategy is when you think you can shift your own checkers quicker than the opposition does: when 1) you have a fewer chips on the game board; 2) all your checkers have past your competitor’s pieces; or 3) your opponent does not use the hitting or blocking strategy.

The Blocking Game Technique

The main goal of the blocking technique, by its title, is to stop your opponent’s pieces, temporarily, while not worrying about moving your checkers quickly. Once you have created the barrier for your competitor’s movement with a couple of checkers, you can shift your other pieces rapidly from the board. The player should also have an apparent plan when to back off and shift the pieces that you used for blocking. The game becomes intriguing when your opposition utilizes the same blocking technique.
