Ripl is a rough one at 23 days with no surrender. Paunn is 22 days and Roulk is 19 days. That gives an idea how hard they are.

Any idea where to start on these maps? Or where are the important territories? I've tried a hundred times and am just getting nowhere. Thanks

Well somehow I just beat Roulk in 20 moves. For those that need a hint I used the bottom middle group and the far 2 right groups. I made a Spearman as soon as possible in both areas (same turn). You make some weird moves where you feel vulnerable. But it works. Good luck.

Any hints on the other 2?

I replayed RIPL and got it in 25 days. It is tough, but beatable. Strategy on the first day is crucial. Also, you have to let the other players fight each other without letting any of them get the upper hand. Work on the bottom center area at the beginning, it will be your winning territory.

Thank you Fusion! It took a few tries but I finally beat Ripl. Took 30 turns all the way to the end. Glad to finally beat all the levels! Feels good.

I must have discovered this game later than others. I played years ago on iOS, put it down for several years, and am now (late 2016) back to trying to beat all maps.

Thanks for the tip, Fusion_power! One thing you said was enough of a hint for me to finally find a winning strategy for Ripl. I did a full solve in 34 turns, but could probably shave 5+ turns off that easily. (After gaining a critical foothold, I twice made mistakes and allowed several troops to be starved.)

Balancing out enemy players and finding ways to manipulate the AI into fighting one another is always good advice but (a) it's general info not unique to Ripl and (b) I'm versed in using this technique already. The comment to work on the bottom center area was super helpful, as I hadn't considered that a viable strategy.

I'm going to add spoilers with more info about Ripl to another thread that is specifically about Ripl.

Did you read my more detailed comments in the other Ripl thread and was that not enough?
