“Set a Trap”

Wall off a portion of the board with bombs to prevent enemy movement into your side of the board. Usually your opponent will bring up a Miner to diffuse the bombs to open up a passage. Position a couple Sergeants (next rank above a Miner) right behind the bombs and eliminate the enemy Miner(s) quickly. Using the Sergeants will free up higher ranked pieces to make a push against the enemy elsewhere. Not to mention you’ve just taken out a precious enemy Miner or two!

“Deploy the Decoys”

Typically players hide their flag in one of the corners of the board surrounded by bombs. Place a decoy bomb in the similar position in the corner you didn’t hide your bomb and a bomb near the back at the center too. This will keep your opponent guessing as to the location of your flag.

“Protect the Minors!”

You start the game with 5 Miners. A Miner is the only playing piece which can diffuse a bomb. Since your opponent will undoubtedly surround his flag with bombs, you will need a Miner to get at the flag to win. Unfortunately Miners are the second lowest rank playing piece. Make sure you protect at least 2 or 3 of them for use near the end of the game.
