Victory - Level 1

So, the game isn't very smart on level one. It gave up it's castles and queen way too easily. Unfortunately this isn't how the computer will play on the next few levels, leading to a false confidence for the inexperienced player. The seemily random mistakes must be done on purpose, given the ruthless efficiency the computer can show on higher levels. It is a good feeling to beat the computer, but it is a short-lived feeling and a false one at that, crank the level up and the bad habbits you may have learned on level one are shown for what they are. My advice for the new player is to play aggressively. Don't give up if you've made a bad move, you'll most likely recover. Get a second and third Queen if you have to. They are almost free.
Best of Luck,
