The Essential Basics of Backgammon Tactics – Part One

The objective of a Backgammon game is to shift your checkers around the game board and get those pieces off the board faster than your challenger who works harder to do the same buthowever they move in the opposing direction. Succeeding in a game in Backgammon needsrequires both strategy and luck. Just how far you can move your chips is left to the numbers from rolling a pair of dice, and the way you shift your pieces are determined by your overall playing strategies. Players use a number of tactics in the different stages of a game dependent on your positions and opponent’s.

The Running Game Strategy

The goal of the Running Game tactic is to bring all your chips into your home board and pull them off as quickly as you could. This plan concentrates on the pace of moving your checkers with no efforts to hit or barricade your opponent’s pieces. The best time to employ this technique is when you believe you might be able to move your own pieces faster than your opposition does: when 1) you have a fewer chips on the game board; 2) all your pieces have past your opponent’s chips; or 3) the opposing player does not use the hitting or blocking technique.

The Blocking Game Strategy

The main goal of the blocking plan, by the name, is to block the competitor’s checkers, temporarily, while not fretting about shifting your pieces rapidly. After you’ve created the blockage for your competitor’s movement with a few pieces, you can shift your other pieces quickly off the board. The player will need to also have an apparent strategy when to withdraw and move the checkers that you employed for the blockade. The game gets interesting when your opposition uses the same blocking strategy.
