Remember the Ramones song Blitzkreig Bop? Well, as a fanatical backgammon player, I’d like to think that the strategy of Blitzing your opponent can be as overwhelming as listening to the Ramone’s song. The key idea, of course, is to attack your opponent’s checkers. An all-out blitz if you will.
This means you can keep him busy with re-entering them.
Still this is not sufficient if do not start blocking the points on your home board.
OK. Get it?
This would pay off big time if your counterpart is kept with checkers on the bar until you start bearing off. This is then your game.
It is a risky tactic.
Be forewarned. You might be blocked to make anchors in your home area, and the course of the game may go against you.
Also you may check if it is wise to risk being hit.
Warning: If your opponent has many anchors in his home area, blitz game strategy is not a wise thing to do.
Another hint: When playing online for real money you should know when to double.
Blitz strategy can be bring a lot of cash to your pockets. Or, it can break your bank.
