Don't know if this is a true strategy, as it affects all players equally, but our group has discovered that spreading a nice white sheet over the playing surface greatly enhances this game. A well-shellaqued table promotes way too much slide and slickeriness, while a be-sheeted table allows for good tumble.

Additionally, when you move and damange, it's much easier not to push around all those dastardly dice and just flip em!

Yes, some sort of cloth is a must. Otherwise, the dice are much harder to keep on the table and rarely roll. The cloth also makes it much easier to rotate the dice, for either movement or damage, without accidentally sliding them. Plus, a softer surface should help keep the corners of your dice in good shape.

I use a big sheet of craft felt. (about 3 mm thick) It gives the perfect amount of friction: properly thrown dice stay on the table, but they will still roll a fair bit upon landing if spun.

Yeah, the rules actually suggest using a tablecoth if you're going to be playing on a table.
