• The Basics of Backgammon Tactics – Part 1

    The goal of a Backgammon game is to shift your chips around the game board and pull them from the game board quicker than your opponent who works harder to achieve the same buthowever they move in the opposing direction. Succeeding in a game in Backgammon requires both strategy and luck. Just how far you can move your checkers is up to the numbers from rolling the dice, and how you shift your pieces are decided on by your overall gambling techniques. Players use a few plans in the differing stages of a match based on your positions and opponent’s.

    The Running Game Tactic

    The aim of the Running Game tactic is to lure all your chips into your home board and pull them off as quick as you could. This technique focuses on the speed of shifting your checkers with absolutely no time spent to hit or stop your competitor’s checkers. The ideal time to use this technique is when you believe you might be able to shift your own pieces a lot faster than your opposition does: when 1) you have less checkers on the game board; 2) all your chips have moved beyond your opponent’s checkers; or 3) your opposing player doesn’t employ the hitting or blocking technique.

    The Blocking Game Strategy

    The primary aim of the blocking strategy, by its title, is to stop the competitor’s pieces, temporarily, not fretting about moving your chips quickly. As soon as you have created the blockade for the opponent’s movement with a couple of checkers, you can shift your other pieces swiftly from the board. You will need to also have a clear strategy when to extract and move the pieces that you used for blocking. The game becomes intriguing when your competitor uses the same blocking tactic.
