The aim of a Backgammon game is to shift your chips around the Backgammon board and pull those pieces off the game board quicker than your competitor who works harder to do the same buthowever they move in the opposite direction. Winning a match of Backgammon needsrequires both tactics and luck. Just how far you can move your chips is left to the numbers from tossing the dice, and how you shift your checkers are decided on by your overall playing techniques. Enthusiasts use a few strategies in the differing parts of a game depending on your positions and opponent’s.

The Running Game Technique

The goal of the Running Game tactic is to lure all your chips into your inside board and pull them off as quickly as you could. This strategy focuses on the pace of shifting your pieces with no time spent to hit or stop your competitor’s chips. The best time to employ this tactic is when you think you can move your own pieces a lot faster than the opposition does: when 1) you have a fewer checkers on the game board; 2) all your chips have moved beyond your opponent’s checkers; or 3) the opponent doesn’t use the hitting or blocking strategy.

The Blocking Game Tactic

The primary goal of the blocking plan, by the name, is to block your competitor’s checkers, temporarily, not fretting about shifting your pieces quickly. Once you’ve created the barrier for your opponent’s movement with a couple of pieces, you can shift your other chips rapidly from the game board. You should also have a clear strategy when to extract and move the chips that you employed for blocking. The game becomes intriguing when the opponent utilizes the same blocking tactic.
