Enthusiasts use a few plans in the different parts 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 chips into your home board and bear them off as fast as you can. This plan focuses on the pace of advancing your pieces with little or no time spent to hit or barricade your competitor’s pieces. The best time to use this plan is when you think you can move your own chips quicker than the opposing player does: when 1) you have a fewer pieces on the game board; 2) all your chips have past your opponent’s checkers; or 3) the opposing player does not use the hitting or blocking plan.

The Blocking Game Plan

The main aim of the blocking plan, by its name, is to stop the opponent’s pieces, temporarily, not worrying about moving your chips quickly. As soon as you’ve created the blockade for the competitor’s movement with a few checkers, you can move your other checkers quickly from the game board. You will need to also have a clear plan when to back off and shift the chips that you used for the blockade. The game becomes interesting when your competitor utilizes the same blocking strategy.
