The goal of a Backgammon match is to shift your pieces around the Backgammon board and pull those pieces from the game board faster than your opposing player who works harder to achieve the same buthowever they move in the opposite direction. Winning a game in Backgammon requires both strategy and fortune. Just how far you will be able to move your chips is up to the numbers from tossing the dice, and how you shift your pieces are determined by your overall gambling tactics. Players use different strategies in the differing parts of a match based on your positions and opponent's.

The Running Game Plan

The goal of the Running Game tactic is to bring all your checkers into your inner board and get them off as quickly as you can. This tactic focuses on the speed of shifting your pieces with no time spent to hit or block your competitor's chips. The ideal scenario to use this strategy is when you think you can move your own pieces faster than your opposition does: when 1) you have less chips on the game board; 2) all your chips have past your competitor's checkers; or 3) your opponent does not use the hitting or blocking tactic.

The Blocking Game Tactic

The primary goal of the blocking tactic, by its title, is to stop the opponent's checkers, temporarily, while not worrying about shifting your pieces quickly. Once you've established the barrier for your opponent's movement with a few pieces, you can shift your other chips swiftly from the game board. You should also have an apparent plan when to extract and move the pieces that you used for the blockade. The game becomes interesting when your opposition uses the same blocking technique.
