The objective of a Backgammon game is to move your checkers around the Backgammon board and pull them off the game board quicker than your opposing player who works just as hard to achieve the same buthowever they move in the opposite direction. Succeeding in a game in Backgammon requires both tactics and luck. Just how far you can move your chips is left to the numbers from rolling a pair of dice, and how you move your pieces are decided on by your overall gambling tactics. Players use different strategies in the different stages of a match dependent on your positions and opponent’s.

The Running Game Technique

The goal of the Running Game technique is to entice all your pieces into your home board and pull them off as quick as you can. This tactic focuses on the pace of advancing your pieces with absolutely no time spent to hit or barricade your competitor’s pieces. The best scenario to use this plan is when you think you can move your own chips a lot faster than your opponent does: when 1) you have less pieces on the board; 2) all your pieces have past your competitor’s pieces; or 3) your opponent does not use the hitting or blocking strategy.

The Blocking Game Strategy

The main aim of the blocking technique, by its title, is to block your competitor’s chips, temporarily, while not worrying about shifting your checkers quickly. After you’ve established the barrier for the opponent’s movement with a few pieces, you can shift your other pieces rapidly off the game board. The player really should also have a good plan when to back off and shift the checkers that you used for blocking. The game gets interesting when the opposition uses the same blocking technique.
