The objective of a Backgammon match is to shift your checkers around the game board and get those pieces off the game board faster than your opposing player who works harder to achieve the same buthowever they move in the opposite direction. Winning a match in Backgammon requires both tactics and good luck. Just how far you will be able to shift your checkers is left to the numbers from rolling a pair of dice, and how you shift your pieces are decided on by your overall gambling tactics. Enthusiasts use a number of techniques in the differing stages of a game based on your positions and opponent's.

The Running Game Strategy

The aim of the Running Game technique is to bring all your checkers into your home board and get them off as quickly as you can. This tactic focuses on the pace of moving your chips with absolutely no time spent to hit or barricade your competitor's checkers. The best time to use this technique is when you think you might be able to shift your own checkers quicker than the opponent does: when 1) you have less chips on the game board; 2) all your pieces have moved beyond your competitor's pieces; or 3) your opponent doesn't employ the hitting or blocking tactic.

The Blocking Game Plan

The main goal of the blocking strategy, by the title, is to block the competitor's chips, temporarily, while not fretting about moving your pieces rapidly. As soon as you've established the blockade for the opponent's movement with a few chips, you can move your other pieces quickly off the board. You should also have an apparent plan when to withdraw and shift the pieces that you employed for the blockade. The game becomes interesting when the opponent uses the same blocking strategy.
