The Essential Facts of Backgammon Tactics – Part One

The goal of a Backgammon match is to shift your chips around the Backgammon board and bear those pieces off the game board faster than your challenger who works just as hard to do the same buthowever they move in the opposing direction. Succeeding in a game in Backgammon requires both strategy and good luck. How far you will be able to shift your chips is left to the numbers from rolling a pair of dice, and the way you shift your checkers are decided on by your overall gambling techniques. Players use a few tactics in the differing stages of a match depending on your positions and opponent’s.

The Running Game Plan

The aim of the Running Game tactic is to lure all your pieces into your inner board and get them off as quickly as you could. This tactic concentrates on the pace of advancing your pieces with little or no efforts to hit or block your opponent’s pieces. The best scenario to use this plan is when you think you might be able to move your own chips faster than the opposing player does: when 1) you have less pieces on the game board; 2) all your checkers have past your competitor’s pieces; or 3) the opposing player does not employ the hitting or blocking strategy.

The Blocking Game Plan

The primary aim of the blocking plan, by its name, is to block your opponent’s checkers, temporarily, not worrying about shifting your chips rapidly. Once you’ve created the blockage for your competitor’s movement with a few pieces, you can move your other pieces rapidly off the game board. You should also have a good strategy when to back off and move the checkers that you utilized for blocking. The game gets interesting when the opponent uses the same blocking strategy.
