It seems that in this game, the last player in each round has a distinct advantage and a very good chance of winning that round. This is particularly true for a 2-player game.

So, instead of winning each round outright (which is almost always do-able), how about purposely capturing fewer pieces to force parity? That way, you can win more cards. I think the gambling could well be worth it because, as mentioned above, going last gives you a great chance of winning the round, even after parities are forced. Therefore you have a good chance of winning the parity cards too.

This was a game-winning tactic for me when I first played yesterday.
Does anyone else think that playing out three cards is completely excessive during Parity rounds?
