The Essential Basics of Backgammon Strategies – Part One

The aim of a Backgammon match is to move your checkers around the Backgammon board and pull them off the game board quicker than your opponent who works just as hard to do the same buthowever they move in the opposite direction. Winning a game in Backgammon requires both tactics and fortune. How far you can shift your checkers is up to the numbers from rolling the dice, and how you shift your chips are decided on by your overall gambling tactics. Players use a number of techniques in the different stages of a match based 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 pull them off as quickly as you can. This plan concentrates on the pace of moving your chips with no time spent to hit or block your opponent’s chips. The ideal scenario to use this strategy is when you think you can shift your own checkers quicker than your opponent does: when 1) you have less pieces on the game board; 2) all your chips have past your opponent’s checkers; or 3) your opponent does not use the hitting or blocking tactic.

The Blocking Game Tactic

The primary goal of the blocking strategy, by its name, is to block the competitor’s pieces, temporarily, while not fretting about moving your chips quickly. As soon as you’ve established the blockage for the opponent’s movement with a few pieces, you can move your other checkers rapidly off the game board. The player really should also have a clear plan when to back off and move the checkers that you used for the blockade. The game becomes intriguing when the opposition utilizes the same blocking strategy.
