The Essential Basics of Backgammon Strategies – Part One

Monday, 6. February 2017

The goal of a Backgammon game is to move your pieces around the game board and bear those pieces off the board quicker than your competitor who works just as hard to attempt the same buthowever they move in the opposing direction. Winning a round in Backgammon requires both strategy and fortune. Just how far you can shift your chips is up to the numbers from tossing the dice, and the way you shift your checkers are decided on by your overall gambling strategies. Players use a few plans in the differing stages of a game dependent on your positions and opponent’s.

The Running Game Technique

The aim of the Running Game technique is to bring all your checkers into your inner board and bear them off as quickly as you could. This technique focuses on the pace of advancing your chips with absolutely no time spent to hit or barricade your competitor’s pieces. The ideal time to use this technique is when you think you can shift your own pieces faster than the opponent does: when 1) you have less chips on the game board; 2) all your checkers have past your opponent’s pieces; or 3) your opponent doesn’t use the hitting or blocking tactic.

The Blocking Game Plan

The main aim of the blocking technique, by the title, is to stop your opponent’s chips, temporarily, while not worrying about shifting your chips quickly. As soon as you’ve established the blockage for the competitor’s movement with a couple of checkers, you can move your other chips rapidly from the board. You will need to also have an apparent plan when to extract and move the pieces that you used for the blockade. The game gets intriguing when the competitor utilizes the same blocking technique.
