The Basics of Backgammon Strategies – Part 1

by Erin on September 6th, 2023

The goal of a Backgammon match is to move your pieces around the Backgammon board and bear them from the game board faster than your competitor who works just as hard to do the same buthowever they move in the opposing direction. Succeeding in a round of Backgammon requires both strategy and fortune. How far you will be able to move your pieces is left to the numbers from rolling the dice, and the way you shift your chips are decided on by your overall gambling tactics. Players use a number of plans in the different stages of a game dependent on your positions and opponent’s.

The Running Game Strategy

The aim of the Running Game strategy is to lure all your checkers into your inside board and pull them off as fast as you could. This technique concentrates on the pace of shifting your checkers with absolutely no time spent to hit or block your competitor’s pieces. The best scenario to use this tactic is when you believe you can move your own checkers faster than your opposition does: when 1) you have less pieces on the board; 2) all your pieces have past your opponent’s checkers; or 3) your opposing player doesn’t use the hitting or blocking strategy.

The Blocking Game Technique

The primary goal of the blocking strategy, by the title, is to block your competitor’s checkers, temporarily, while not worrying about shifting your checkers rapidly. As soon as you have established the blockage for the competitor’s movement with a couple of checkers, you can shift your other checkers rapidly from the board. You will need to also have a good strategy when to back off and move the pieces that you employed for the blockade. The game gets intriguing when your competitor uses the same blocking tactic.
