The goal of a Backgammon game is to move your checkers around the game board and get them from the game board quicker than your opponent who works harder to do the same buthowever they move in the opposing direction. Succeeding in a match of Backgammon requires both strategy and luck.

Enthusiasts use different techniques in the differing parts of a game depending on your positions and opponent’s.

The Running Game Strategy

The aim of the Running Game plan is to lure all your checkers into your home board and get them off as fast as you could. This strategy focuses on the pace of moving your pieces with little or no efforts to hit or barricade your opponent’s chips. The best time to use this technique is when you think you can move your own pieces quicker than the opponent does: when 1) you have less pieces on the board; 2) all your pieces have moved beyond your opponent’s checkers; or 3) your opposing player doesn’t employ the hitting or blocking tactic.

The Blocking Game Technique

The primary goal of the blocking tactic, by the title, is to block the competitor’s checkers, temporarily, while not worrying about moving your chips rapidly. Once you have established the blockade for the opponent’s movement with a few chips, you can move your other chips quickly from the board. The player should also have a good strategy when to withdraw and shift the pieces that you used for the blockade. The game becomes intriguing when the opposition uses the same blocking technique.
