Strategy

The main strategy in Gaining Gravity is to balance between caution (don’t be knocked home by your opponents game piece) and greed (capture as much prey as possible).

Tricks:

Keeping up appearances:

Perhaps your opponent is able to knock you out – but he might be more interested in capturing preys. Don’t let him discover that he can knock you out.

Figure it out:

Gaining Gravity is played on a sort of tilt. This means that weight close to the middle of the board will appear to weigh less than weight situated longer away from the middle. It is also a good idea to figure out the probability for being knocked out by your opponent.

Steal space:

If you can place your game piece in the middle of the board – but in safe distance from your opponent – do it. Thus your opponent will have trouble to make a safe move when it is his turn. Find out what kind of risk you want to take to find the balance between capturing prey, stealing space or being knocked out.
