Hi, it's my first board one game in a week or so in the 4th team. How do i play it, as boring as posible or balls out for the win?
You should always play for a win unless playing for a win comes with a great deal of risk. For example, suppose your team is eligible to get some sort of prize if your game is drawn but not eligible if you lose.
Then you have to stop to consider if playing a risky game where the game is not clear is worth the risk of going for a win. Perhaps you might wish to leave yourself the option of playing for a draw if it helps your team.
Just something to consider. I can not take credit for this. It was something I learned from watching aww-rats videos.
