Strategy and Winning Tactics

Woohoo, NanooktheEskimo and Josey Wales facing off on a 2 player game. Should be a worthy one to watch as I suspect Nanook will be coming out firing on all cylinders and it will be a quick-witted Josey Wales required to survive the onslaught.

Watch this game for strategy, tips and general all-round fun. May the best country win!

So far it’s mostly been a series of gambles by Nanook that don’t pay off.

My strategy is I click until orders are actually entered or just flip a coin.
