by Erin on July 28th, 2019

The goal of a Backgammon match is to shift your checkers around the game board and bear those pieces off the board quicker than your challenger who works just as hard to achieve the same buthowever they move in the opposite direction. Winning a game in Backgammon requires both strategy and good luck. Just how far you will be able to move your checkers is up to the numbers from rolling the dice, and just how you move your pieces are decided on by your overall gambling techniques. Players use a few plans in the differing parts of a game dependent on your positions and opponent’s.

The Running Game Strategy

The aim of the Running Game plan is to bring all your chips into your inner board and bear them off as fast as you can. This strategy concentrates on the pace of moving your chips with little or no efforts to hit or block your competitor’s pieces. The ideal time to employ this plan is when you think you might be able to shift your own checkers faster than your opposing player does: when 1) you have less pieces on the game board; 2) all your pieces have moved beyond your opponent’s pieces; or 3) the opposing player does not employ the hitting or blocking plan.

The Blocking Game Technique

The primary aim of the blocking strategy, by the name, is to block your opponent’s pieces, temporarily, not worrying about moving your checkers quickly. After you’ve established the barrier for the competitor’s movement with a few chips, you can shift your other chips rapidly off the game board. You should also have an apparent plan when to withdraw and shift the chips that you utilized for blocking. The game gets interesting when your opposition utilizes the same blocking tactic.
