I attacked with a 7, lost 2, and ended my turn. Any suggestions on strategy? Not just for this game, but strategy in general for the situation. Thanks.

legion of boom wrote:Hi, I have a question around the "strategy of the stacks". I'm playing a game with 3 other people at the moment and have a slight advantage over the other 3 in terms of troops numbers and the fact I have bigger stacks (about 20-25 troop adv). However none of the other 3 players are particularly weak in terms of there stacks and they all have high ranks so as a new player I'm fairly wary, my questions are:
1) What factors go into making the decision on whether to attack or not
2) Should I only attack if I can eliminate a player completely and how does one mitigate the problem of potentially expending so many troops on eliminating a player to then fall behind the other players (even if you do pickup 2 or 3 bonus cards)
3) Or should I chip away at one player enough so that the others can't eliminate him up until the point where I can
4) In a game where there are other strong stacks like mine should I chip away at all players rather than just 1 so they all get weakened and none then benefit from me expending a load of troops until the point where I can "safely" eliminate a player.
Thanks for any advice or if there is another thread discussing this topic please point me to it!

Me: 77 (5 cards)
Others: 48(3), 70(3), 45(5)
Escalating and no fog.
Ok so it sounds like in these situations to nip at each one until I can safely kill one and gain a real advantage from it?
