The aim of a Backgammon game is to shift your pieces around the Backgammon board and get those pieces from the board quicker than your competitor who works harder to attempt the same buthowever they move in the opposing direction. Winning a match of Backgammon requires both strategy and fortune. How far you will be able to move your pieces is up to the numbers from tossing a pair of dice, and how you shift your pieces are decided on by your overall gambling plans. Enthusiasts use a number of strategies in the different parts of a match dependent on your positions and opponent’s.

The Running Game Tactic

The aim of the Running Game technique is to lure all your chips into your inside board and bear them off as fast as you could. This plan concentrates on the speed of shifting your checkers with absolutely no efforts to hit or block your competitor’s checkers. The best scenario to employ this strategy is when you believe you might be able to move your own chips quicker than the opposing player does: when 1) you have a fewer pieces on the game board; 2) all your pieces have moved beyond your opponent’s checkers; or 3) the opponent doesn’t employ the hitting or blocking technique.

The Blocking Game Strategy

The main aim of the blocking plan, by the name, is to stop your competitor’s pieces, temporarily, while not fretting about moving your chips rapidly. As soon as you’ve created the barrier for your competitor’s movement with a few checkers, you can shift your other chips rapidly off the game board. The player should also have a clear strategy when to back off and shift the chips that you employed for the blockade. The game becomes intriguing when your opponent utilizes the same blocking technique.
