• The Basics of Backgammon Game Plans – Part One

    The objective of a Backgammon game is to move your chips around the game board and bear those pieces from the game board faster than your challenger who works harder to achieve the same buthowever they move in the opposing direction. Succeeding in a round in Backgammon requires both strategy and luck. How far you will be able to move your pieces is left to the numbers from tossing a pair of dice, and just how you shift your checkers are determined by your overall playing plans. Players use different tactics in the different stages of a game depending on your positions and opponent’s.

    The Running Game Strategy

    The goal of the Running Game tactic is to lure all your checkers into your home board and pull them off as quickly as you could. This plan concentrates on the speed of advancing your chips with absolutely no efforts to hit or barricade your opponent’s checkers. The best time to use this strategy is when you believe you can shift your own pieces a lot faster than the opposing player does: when 1) you have less checkers on the game board; 2) all your chips have moved beyond your opponent’s chips; or 3) the opponent doesn’t employ the hitting or blocking strategy.

    The Blocking Game Tactic

    The primary goal of the blocking plan, by the name, is to stop the competitor’s chips, temporarily, not fretting about moving your pieces quickly. After you’ve established the blockade for your competitor’s movement with a few checkers, you can move your other chips swiftly from the board. You should also have an apparent strategy when to back off and move the checkers that you used for the blockade. The game becomes intriguing when your competitor uses the same blocking strategy.
