I will show my other game played in Landgrab Risk again.In Risk,'balance of power' is vital to gain the victory.Thus,you can perform the 'nail' tactic well,then you can keep the 'balance of power' easily.Remember,'balance of power' is to contain the other's power,not YOURS.Hence,you must seize any opportunity to expand if possible.To expand,you must know how to 'nail' the others.

Sure,you must calculate these things before 'nailing':
1)Is it necessary to 'nail' him?
2)How to 'nail' him is the best?
3)Do you have enough troops to repel his counter-attack?
4)Is he stand on a strategic location that protecting you from the strong opponent?If yes,'nail' him isn't the good choice.

In this game,it have 'unlimited fortification'.And the card bonus increase gradually.Besides,there're 'terrtories bonus' in this game(I have already explained what is that in the previous post,I don't explain again)The bonus is 10!Hence,card almost become the key of the victory.

To watch this game,just go to search function and crick 'salads, better tossed---you decide' in the game name,remember to crick 'include complete games'.At below,I will show the game.Well,here is the map I played.

Name Value Owner
Cyrodiil 11 Tokugawa Ieyasu
Morrowind 7 Tokugawa Ieyasu
Skyrim 5 Tokugawa Ieyasu
Elsweyr 4 Tokugawa Ieyasu
Hammerfell 4 Tokugawa Ieyasu
High Rock 4 Tokugawa Ieyasu
Black Marsh 3 Tokugawa Ieyasu
Valenwood 3 Tokugawa Ieyasu
Solstheim 2 Tokugawa Ieyasu
Summerset Isles 2 Tokugawa Ieyasu

Initial Situation

I(Green) controlled Black Marsh
Blue controlled Elsweyr and Valendwood(poorly defended due to divide)
Black controlled Solstheim and tried to control Morrowind(the latter is the poor decision)
Yellow controlled High Rock
Red controlled Summerset Isles
Brown controlled Skyrim,'born-encircled' by two players

How to deal with two sides' threat?

In the initial stage,2 players was threatening me.Black was at the north(Morrowind),and blue was at the south(Elsweyr and Valenwood).Black was expanding in Morrowind and attempted to control the 7-value continent.Before he unified Morrowind,I have already 'nailed' blue,weakened him.The unwise black unified Morrowind with insufficient troops and left a hole in his border.

If you're me,how to counter two threats?Please give your view.Later I will tell you the result of my game.
