The Basics of Backgammon Game Plans – Part One

The aim of a Backgammon game is to move your chips around the game board and pull those pieces off the game board quicker than your opposing player who works just as hard to attempt the same buthowever they move in the opposite direction. Succeeding in a match of Backgammon needsrequires both tactics and luck. How far you will be able to move your chips is left to the numbers from tossing the dice, and the way you move your chips are determined by your overall playing plans. Players use differing tactics in the differing parts of a match depending on your positions and opponent’s.

The Running Game Tactic

The aim of the Running Game tactic is to bring all your pieces into your inside board and get them off as quickly as you can. This plan focuses on the speed of shifting your pieces with little or no time spent to hit or stop your opponent’s checkers. The best time to employ this tactic is when you think you can move your own checkers quicker than your opposing player does: when 1) you have less pieces on the board; 2) all your chips have past your competitor’s chips; or 3) the opposing player doesn’t use the hitting or blocking tactic.

The Blocking Game Strategy

The primary aim of the blocking plan, by the name, is to stop the opponent’s chips, temporarily, while not fretting about shifting your chips quickly. As soon as you’ve created the barrier for your opponent’s movement with a couple of chips, you can move your other checkers swiftly off the game board. You should also have an apparent strategy when to back off and shift the checkers that you employed for the blockade. The game becomes intriguing when your competitor utilizes the same blocking technique.
