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

The Running Game Tactic

The goal of the Running Game technique is to entice all your pieces into your inner board and bear them off as quickly as you could. This strategy focuses on the pace of moving your pieces with little or no efforts to hit or stop your opponent’s checkers. The ideal time to use this technique is when you believe you can move your own chips faster than the opposing player does: when 1) you have a fewer chips on the game board; 2) all your checkers have past your competitor’s chips; or 3) your opponent does not employ the hitting or blocking tactic.

The Blocking Game Strategy

The main goal of the blocking plan, by its name, is to stop the competitor’s pieces, temporarily, not fretting about shifting your checkers rapidly. Once you’ve established the blockage for the competitor’s movement with a couple of chips, you can move your other chips rapidly off the game board. You will need to also have a good plan when to withdraw and move the checkers that you utilized for the blockade. The game gets intriguing when your opponent utilizes the same blocking technique.
