The aim of a Backgammon match is to move your pieces around the game board and pull them off the board quicker than your challenger who works harder to attempt the same buthowever they move in the opposing direction. Winning a game of Backgammon requires both tactics and luck. Just how far you will be able to shift your pieces is left to the numbers from rolling a pair of dice, and just how you move your pieces are decided on by your overall gambling plans. Enthusiasts use a number of tactics in the differing parts of a game dependent on your positions and opponent’s.

The Running Game Technique

The aim of the Running Game strategy is to lure all your pieces into your home board and pull them off as fast as you could. This technique concentrates on the pace of advancing your checkers with absolutely no time spent to hit or block your competitor’s checkers. The ideal scenario to use this plan is when you believe you can move your own pieces a lot faster than the opponent does: when 1) you have a fewer chips on the board; 2) all your chips have past your opponent’s pieces; or 3) the opponent does not use the hitting or blocking strategy.

The Blocking Game Technique

The primary aim of the blocking plan, by the title, is to block the opponent’s pieces, temporarily, not worrying about shifting your checkers rapidly. Once you have established the barrier for the opponent’s movement with a couple of checkers, you can shift your other chips quickly off the board. You will need to also have an apparent strategy when to extract and move the chips that you used for the blockade. The game gets intriguing when the opponent utilizes the same blocking strategy.
