The Running Game Strategy

The aim of the Running Game tactic is to bring all your checkers into your inner board and get them off as quickly as you can. This plan focuses on the speed of moving your checkers with little or no time spent to hit or stop your opponent’s chips. The ideal time to employ this tactic is when you think you might be able to move your own checkers quicker than your opposing player does: when 1) you have less checkers on the game board; 2) all your pieces have past your competitor’s chips; or 3) your opponent does not employ the hitting or blocking strategy.

The Blocking Game Plan

The primary goal of the blocking strategy, by the title, is to block the competitor’s checkers, temporarily, not fretting about moving your checkers quickly. After you’ve established the barrier for your competitor’s movement with a few checkers, you can shift your other pieces swiftly from the board. The player will need to also have a clear strategy when to extract and move the checkers that you utilized for blocking. The game becomes interesting when the competitor uses the same blocking strategy.
