by Erin on April 26th, 2024

The objective of a Backgammon match is to move your checkers around the Backgammon board and bear them off the board faster than your opponent who works just as hard to attempt the same buthowever they move in the opposing direction. Winning a game of Backgammon requires both strategy and fortune. Just how far you can move your chips is left to the numbers from rolling the dice, and the way you move your chips are decided on by your overall playing strategies. Players use differing strategies in the different parts of a match dependent on your positions and opponent’s.

The Running Game Plan

The goal of the Running Game tactic is to bring all your chips into your home board and pull them off as quick as you can. This plan concentrates on the pace of moving your pieces with absolutely no time spent to hit or barricade your competitor’s chips. The ideal time to employ this tactic is when you believe you might be able to move your own chips quicker than your opposition does: when 1) you have a fewer chips on the game board; 2) all your chips have past your competitor’s checkers; or 3) the opponent doesn’t employ the hitting or blocking plan.

The Blocking Game Tactic

The primary aim of the blocking strategy, by the name, is to stop your competitor’s chips, temporarily, not fretting about shifting your pieces quickly. After you have established the barrier for the opponent’s movement with a few chips, you can move your other chips rapidly from the board. You should also have a clear strategy when to extract and shift the chips that you used for blocking. The game becomes intriguing when your competitor uses the same blocking technique.
