This isn’t the first time I find myself in this situation and I’m interested to know how the seasoned veterans would play this scenario out:
I’m in the lead by a comfortable but not totally dominating margin. Players in 2nd & 3rd place are friendly with me, but definitely tighter with each other and their combined forces are enough to obliterate me. Pretty soon we’ll have wiped out the remaining smaller players and there won’t be enough stars left for anyone to win without attacking each other.
I can only see 3 options:
- Try and get into bed with one of them (at the high risk of losing all trust)
- Attack early (at the almost certain outcome of failure)
- Prepare for a defense & counter attack
Can anyone else think of a better strategy here?
