The Essential Details of Backgammon Game Plans – Part One

by Erin on September 20th, 2020

The objective of a Backgammon game is to shift your checkers around the game board and get those pieces from the game board quicker than your opposing player who works harder to do the same buthowever they move in the opposite direction. Winning a round of Backgammon requires both strategy and fortune. Just how far you will be able to shift your chips is left to the numbers from rolling the dice, and just how you move your pieces are determined by your overall playing tactics. Players use a few strategies in the different parts of a game dependent on your positions and opponent’s.

The Running Game Tactic

The aim of the Running Game tactic is to lure all your pieces into your inside board and get them off as quickly as you can. This plan concentrates on the speed of moving your chips with absolutely no efforts to hit or barricade your competitor’s pieces. The ideal time to employ this technique is when you believe you can shift your own checkers a lot faster than your opposing player does: when 1) you have less pieces on the board; 2) all your chips have moved beyond your opponent’s pieces; or 3) your opponent doesn’t employ the hitting or blocking tactic.

The Blocking Game Strategy

The primary goal of the blocking plan, by the title, is to block your competitor’s checkers, temporarily, while not fretting about shifting your chips rapidly. After you’ve created the barrier for the opponent’s movement with a couple of chips, you can move your other pieces quickly off the board. You should also have a good plan when to withdraw and shift the checkers that you utilized for blocking. The game gets intriguing when your opposition uses the same blocking technique.
