Hit or Not

The Good Home Birkenhead

In general, if hitting an opponents blot is an option you probalbly want to hit.

However, there are plenty of exceptions.

  • If you can hit a blot in the outfield or make a key inner board point (5 point) the inner point might take precedence.
  • If hitting leaves you with lots of blots and your opponent with lots of return shots, you best pass up the hit.
  • If your position is stacked and awkward a developing play might be better.
  • If you have a choice between a hit and filling in a key point in a prime, the prime is better.

Head down to The Good Home to learn how to be a hit in your BG Game.
