• The Basics of Backgammon Game Plans – Part One

    [ English ]

    The objective of a Backgammon game is to shift your pieces around the Backgammon board and bear 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 game in Backgammon requires both strategy and fortune. How far you will be able to move your pieces is left to the numbers from rolling the dice, and just how you shift your checkers are decided on by your overall playing strategies. Enthusiasts use different plans in the differing parts of a game dependent on your positions and opponent’s.

    The Running Game Strategy

    The goal of the Running Game strategy is to entice all your checkers into your inner board and pull them off as fast as you could. This technique concentrates on the speed of shifting your checkers with no time spent to hit or barricade your opponent’s checkers. The best scenario to employ this plan is when you believe you can shift your own chips quicker than your opposition does: when 1) you have a fewer checkers on the board; 2) all your chips have moved beyond your competitor’s chips; or 3) the opposing player does not use the hitting or blocking plan.

    The Blocking Game Plan

    The main aim of the blocking tactic, by its title, is to stop your opponent’s chips, temporarily, while not worrying about shifting your pieces rapidly. After you’ve created the blockage for the competitor’s movement with a couple of chips, you can shift your other pieces quickly from the board. The player should also have a good plan when to extract and shift the checkers that you used for the blockade. The game becomes intriguing when your competitor utilizes the same blocking technique.
