aggressively, you need to put it all on the line, and you've got to have
the balls to commit to it. Even though extremely aggressive plays take a
risk at committing suicide, you not only have a chance of surviving... you
have a chance at winning quickly. Take your men into strategically sound
places such as South America and Africa. Then explode taking down as many
territories as possible! For example, take Africa and stick almost all of
your men on Egypt and North Africa. From there you wait until it is your
turn. If you are the last player to go, you wait until the others have
destroyed each other's defenses. Then you make the attacks! Go for South
America because it can only be attacked by Central America when you own
Africa. If you have enough men on Venezuela, keep going! Take out Central
America, and then stop there. Return to the African/European border and
choose where to continue: Western Europe, Eastern Europe, or the Middle
~ If you go with the Middle East,
you must stay low: go for India, Siam, then Australia. There is a risk of
spreading yourself thin, but you could build up in Australia and have a go
at Asia, even if India falls.
~If you go with Western Europe stay left and try to take out Great
Britain. Then go upwards towards Iceland and Scandinavia.
~If you go with Eastern Europe choose either left or right, but either way
you are likely to lose too many men, possibly opening a hole to yourself.
To stay alive you have to keep yourself from getting too spread out. If
you do accomplish the conquests you're looking for, and you get spread
apart then you should defend what is truly important (Africa and South
America in our example) and if your new conquests fall, they fall. Even if
you lose them, your raid has still put a huge dent in their forces. The
motto of the aggressive player: More countries equals more armies.
