The Essential Details of Backgammon Strategies – Part One

The goal of a Backgammon match is to shift your pieces around the Backgammon board and bear them from the board faster than your competitor who works harder to do the same buthowever they move in the opposite direction. Winning a game in Backgammon requires both strategy and fortune. Just how far you can shift your pieces is left to the numbers from rolling a pair of dice, and how you move your checkers are determined by your overall playing strategies. Enthusiasts use a number of techniques in the different parts of a game depending on your positions and opponent’s.

The Running Game Tactic

The goal of the Running Game plan is to entice all your pieces into your inner board and pull them off as quickly as you can. This plan concentrates on the speed of advancing your pieces with no time spent to hit or block your opponent’s checkers. The ideal scenario to employ this strategy is when you believe you might be able to move your own pieces faster than the opposing player does: when 1) you have less checkers on the board; 2) all your chips have moved beyond your competitor’s checkers; or 3) the opponent does not use the hitting or blocking tactic.

The Blocking Game Tactic

The primary goal of the blocking strategy, by its title, is to block your competitor’s checkers, temporarily, not fretting about moving your pieces rapidly. Once you’ve established the blockade for the competitor’s movement with a couple of checkers, you can move your other checkers rapidly off the board. You should also have a clear plan when to extract and shift the checkers that you used for the blockade. The game gets interesting when the opponent utilizes the same blocking technique.
