The aim of a Backgammon game is to move your checkers around the game board and bear those pieces off the board quicker than your opponent who works just as hard to attempt the same buthowever they move in the opposite direction. Succeeding in a match in Backgammon requires both strategy and luck. Just how far you will be able to shift your chips is left to the numbers from rolling the dice, and how you shift your checkers are determined by your overall playing strategies. Enthusiasts use a number of strategies in the different stages of a match depending on your positions and opponent's.

The Running Game Tactic

The goal of the Running Game strategy is to bring all your pieces into your inner board and bear them off as fast as you could. This technique concentrates on the speed of advancing your chips with no time spent to hit or block your opponent's checkers. The best scenario to employ this strategy is when you believe you might be able to shift your own pieces quicker than your opposing player does: when 1) you have a fewer checkers on the board; 2) all your chips have past your competitor's checkers; or 3) the opponent does not use the hitting or blocking strategy.

The Blocking Game Tactic

The primary goal of the blocking plan, by the name, is to block the competitor's pieces, temporarily, not worrying about moving your pieces quickly. Once you've established the barrier for the competitor's movement with a couple of checkers, you can move your other chips swiftly off the board. You should also have a good strategy when to extract and move the chips that you used for the blockade. The game becomes interesting when the opponent utilizes the same blocking technique.
