“play base game as tutorial only”

Play the base game without any expansions just to get a sense of what’s happening at the early, middle, and end stages of the game and understand what you need to do.

But once you get a feel for the game — and it might only take the one time — start playing with the Dark Alley and other expansions.

It’s difficult to get to the Level 16 trick cards by the end of 5 rounds (the Base Game limit), plus without the Dark Alley, it’s difficult to have make enough money from round to round, especially in a 2-player game.

“Focus slightly more on getting fame points at the start”

In the opening rounds of the game, you need to keep up cash flow to be able to pay your staff, but you also need to focus on getting fame points to 16 so you can level up your trick roster. From 16, it’s easier to get to 32, but the first few rounds are important.

Pick Level 1 tricks that give you bonus Fame. Prepare your tricks on Performance Cards that give bonus Fame to the Performer. Try to pick those when you Perform.
