Chessgammon Strategies:

1. Fundamental Backgammon Strategy:  Keep spaces/points blocked (meaning, 2 or more pieces), including while bearing off.

2. Move Rooks forward to protect Pawns from opponent's King Pawn-hitting ability; each Rook protects 2 pawns, therefore, when using 16 piece setup, Rooks can protect half of the Pawns.

3. Good Piece Combo: King & Bishop -- the Bishop has a greater chance of moving with the King to maintain a full block, because it can move 1 on a roll of 1 or 2.

4. Good Piece Combo:  Bishop & Knight -- the Bishop and Knight have extra chances of being able to move together due to their special movement abilities (add & subtract).
