general rule: don't try and reclaim lost ground: unless it is worth it (i.e connecting terriotories) use castles at choke points and campaign aggressively against your neighbours (BUT REMEMBER TO DESTORY THEM) the AI has a habit of bouncing back in your face. I haven't got the Ipod version and so can't judge the position. try cordoning off terroitory from your neighbours if they can't get it but you can its like taking terriotory off them. If you're not on the lowest difficulty then try that.

Keep trying =)

Irritate yellow when you can, start off taking easily defendable spots next to oppising capitals, far right two capitals just save for towers. That was the general strategy when I beat it on very hard mode.

I have just done island 249 on very intelligent in 28 turns, surrender is never accepted of course. My main adversary was green, Yellow was dangerous only early on but then I neutralised it pretty quick.

I am curious to know other people's best score for this one.
