Island 106, is it possible to beat this level?

Post by dragon of blood » Thu Feb 08, 2007 4:23 am

I've beaten every other small island (on clever) except for 106. Nothing I do seems to work. Dark green always establishes a massive territory on the left side of the island and the level is pretty much over.

Any ideas?

Yes, it's very possible to beat the computer on island #106 on clever and even on very clever. For me, the key seems to be to keep my two easternmost territories alive and join them up as soon as possible. Eventually, you'll be able to build a knight and cut dark green in half.

There is a non-intuitive way to beat #106 in 19 days. I just replayed it and won in 20 days on very clever. The trick is to keep both east and west alive and join territories on the 3rd, 4th, and 5th days. It looks incredible when you first make these moves but the comp players make some really poor choices which gives you an early commanding position.
