• The Essential Basics of Backgammon Tactics – Part One

    The goal of a Backgammon game is to move your chips around the game board and pull those pieces from the board quicker than your opposing player who works harder to achieve the same buthowever they move in the opposite direction. Winning a round in Backgammon needsrequires both strategy and good luck. Just how far you will be able to move your chips is up to the numbers from tossing the dice, and how you move your chips are decided on by your overall playing plans. Players use a number of plans in the different parts of a match depending on your positions and opponent’s.

    The Running Game Tactic

    The aim of the Running Game plan is to bring all your pieces into your home board and pull them off as quickly as you can. This technique concentrates on the speed of advancing your pieces with no time spent to hit or barricade your competitor’s pieces. The ideal scenario to use this technique is when you think you might be able to move your own pieces quicker than your opposition does: when 1) you have less checkers on the board; 2) all your checkers have past your competitor’s checkers; or 3) your opposing player doesn’t employ the hitting or blocking strategy.

    The Blocking Game Plan

    The primary aim of the blocking tactic, by the title, is to block your opponent’s checkers, temporarily, not fretting about shifting your checkers rapidly. As soon as you have established the barrier for the competitor’s movement with a couple of chips, you can move your other pieces quickly from the board. The player will need to also have a good plan when to back off and shift the checkers that you employed for blocking. The game gets interesting when the competitor uses the same blocking strategy.
