• The Essential Facts of Backgammon Game Plans – Part 1

    [ English ]

    The aim of a Backgammon game is to shift your chips around the game board and get them off the game board faster than your opposing player who works just as hard to attempt the same buthowever they move in the opposite direction. Succeeding in a round in Backgammon needsrequires both strategy and fortune. How far you can shift your chips is left to the numbers from tossing a pair of dice, and the way you shift your chips are decided on by your overall playing tactics. Players use a number of strategies in the different stages of a match based on your positions and opponent’s.

    The Running Game Strategy

    The goal of the Running Game strategy is to bring all your pieces into your inside board and get them off as fast as you can. This plan concentrates on the speed of shifting your chips with little or no efforts to hit or block your opponent’s checkers. The best scenario to employ this technique is when you think you can move your own chips faster than your opposing player does: when 1) you have a fewer chips on the board; 2) all your checkers have moved beyond your competitor’s pieces; or 3) the opponent doesn’t use the hitting or blocking tactic.

    The Blocking Game Plan

    The main goal of the blocking tactic, by its name, is to stop the opponent’s chips, temporarily, while not fretting about shifting your pieces rapidly. Once you have established the blockage for the opponent’s movement with a few chips, you can shift your other pieces rapidly off the board. You should also have an apparent strategy when to back off and move the pieces that you used for blocking. The game becomes interesting when your opponent uses the same blocking strategy.
