• The Essential Basics of Backgammon Game Plans – Part One

    The objective of a Backgammon match is to shift your pieces around the Backgammon board and bear them from the game board quicker than your opponent who works just as hard to do the same buthowever they move in the opposing direction. Succeeding in a match of Backgammon needsrequires both tactics and luck. Just how far you can move your pieces is left to the numbers from tossing a pair of dice, and how you shift your chips are decided on by your overall playing plans. Players use a few plans in the different parts of a match based on your positions and opponent’s.

    The Running Game Technique

    The aim of the Running Game tactic is to bring all your checkers into your inside board and bear them off as quickly as you can. This plan focuses on the pace of advancing your chips with little or no efforts to hit or stop your competitor’s chips. The best scenario to use this tactic is when you think you can move your own chips quicker than the opposing player does: when 1) you have a fewer checkers on the board; 2) all your chips have past your competitor’s chips; or 3) the opposing player doesn’t use the hitting or blocking tactic.

    The Blocking Game Strategy

    The main goal of the blocking tactic, by the title, is to stop your competitor’s pieces, temporarily, while not worrying about moving your pieces rapidly. As soon as you have established the blockade for the opponent’s movement with a few checkers, you can shift your other pieces swiftly from the game board. The player should also have an apparent strategy when to withdraw and shift the checkers that you employed for the blockade. The game becomes interesting when your competitor uses the same blocking strategy.
