• The Essential Basics of Backgammon Tactics – Part One

    The goal of a Backgammon match is to shift your pieces around the Backgammon board and get them from the board faster than your challenger who works just as hard to attempt the same buthowever they move in the opposing direction. Succeeding in a round in Backgammon requires both tactics and fortune. Just how far you can shift your checkers is left to the numbers from rolling the dice, and just how you shift your chips are determined by your overall gambling strategies. Enthusiasts use differing strategies in the different parts of a match depending on your positions and opponent’s.

    The Running Game Strategy

    The aim of the Running Game tactic is to entice all your chips into your inside board and get them off as quick as you could. This tactic concentrates on the speed of shifting your checkers with absolutely no time spent to hit or stop your opponent’s pieces. The ideal time to employ this strategy is when you think you might be able to shift your own checkers quicker than your opponent does: when 1) you have a fewer checkers on the game board; 2) all your checkers have moved beyond your opponent’s pieces; or 3) the opposing player does not use the hitting or blocking strategy.

    The Blocking Game Strategy

    The primary goal of the blocking strategy, by its name, is to block your competitor’s checkers, temporarily, while not worrying about shifting your checkers rapidly. Once you’ve created the blockade for the opponent’s movement with a few checkers, you can move your other pieces rapidly off the board. You will need to also have a clear plan when to back off and shift the checkers that you employed for blocking. The game becomes intriguing when the competitor uses the same blocking technique.
