The goal of a Backgammon match is to shift your pieces around the Backgammon board and bear those pieces off the game board faster than your opponent who works just as hard to attempt the same buthowever they move in the opposite direction. Succeeding in a round in Backgammon requires both strategy and fortune. Just how far you will be able to move your pieces is up to the numbers from rolling the dice, and how you shift your chips are decided on by your overall gambling plans. Players use a number of strategies in the different stages of a game based on your positions and opponent’s.

The Running Game Technique

The aim of the Running Game technique is to entice all your checkers into your inner board and pull them off as quick as you can. This tactic concentrates on the speed of moving your checkers with no efforts to hit or barricade your opponent’s pieces. The ideal time to use this technique is when you think you can shift your own checkers faster than the opposing player does: when 1) you have a fewer chips on the board; 2) all your chips have past your competitor’s checkers; or 3) the opponent does not employ the hitting or blocking plan.

The Blocking Game Technique

The primary aim of the blocking technique, by its title, is to stop the competitor’s pieces, temporarily, while not fretting about shifting your checkers rapidly. As soon as you’ve created the blockade for your opponent’s movement with a few pieces, you can shift your other pieces rapidly off the game board. You should also have an apparent strategy when to extract and shift the checkers that you used for the blockade. The game gets intriguing when the opposition utilizes the same blocking technique.
