The Basics of Backgammon Strategies – Part 1

by Erin on February 19th, 2024

The aim of a Backgammon game is to move your chips around the Backgammon board and get them from the board quicker than your challenger who works just as hard to achieve the same buthowever they move in the opposing direction. Succeeding in a match of Backgammon requires both tactics and good luck. How far you can move your pieces is left to the numbers from rolling a pair of dice, and how you shift your chips are determined by your overall gambling techniques. Enthusiasts use differing tactics in the differing parts of a game depending on your positions and opponent’s.

The Running Game Technique

The goal of the Running Game tactic is to bring all your chips into your home board and bear them off as quickly as you can. This strategy concentrates on the speed of moving your chips with absolutely no efforts to hit or stop your competitor’s pieces. The ideal time to use this technique is when you believe you might be able to shift your own checkers a lot faster than your opponent does: when 1) you have less pieces on the game board; 2) all your checkers have moved beyond your opponent’s pieces; or 3) the opposing player doesn’t use the hitting or blocking technique.

The Blocking Game Technique

The primary goal of the blocking strategy, by the title, is to block the competitor’s chips, temporarily, while not fretting about shifting your pieces rapidly. As soon as you have established the blockade for your opponent’s movement with a couple of pieces, you can move your other checkers rapidly off the game board. You really should also have an apparent plan when to back off and shift the pieces that you used for the blockade. The game becomes intriguing when the competitor utilizes the same blocking tactic.
