Our group plays Fire in the Lake regularly.
My shipment of Falling Sky just arrived here in
the Philippines today.

We played the main scenario with the Sudden Frost option.
First game, Romans won on the first winter.
That was a quick one.

Second game, Beglic won on the third winter.
The Averni just needed 4 legions more to win,
meaning she was at 8 allies already.

I played Aedui having absolutely no idea how to win.
I used Trade & Suborn regularly.
That was it.

I need help.

Thanks in advance.

The Aedui do best spread out. You won't have the military might that any of the other factions carry, so you'll have to rely on cunning and negotiation to achieve victory.

First thing is first, you're somewhat tied to the Romans. Since as before mentioned you don't have the forces to go charging into battle, you'll need Caesar to help clear down whomever has the Most Other Allies. Don't be afraid of giving the Roman player Resources, especially when you Trade and he can give you Supply to generate a bit more cash.

Generally, your biggest worry will be the Arverni, since you share a Home Region next door. Make sure you spread your Warbands so you can Suborn and remove their Allies to place your own.

Great game design makes the complex simple, replayability maximum, and abstraction credible.

It’s not how well you roll that counts but how well the dice suit the game.

If you played the 54BC scenario, there’s no victory phase for the first winter!

I agree with PF's comments on Aedui strategy: the Aedui have to rely upon working with the Romans (up to a point), especially to get Resources, and use their Suborn SA to the hilt. As also noted by PF, the Arverni are the main opponent for the Aedui, especially as the Arverni can tromp through the Aedui Regions to spread Devastation markers which will cause much havoc for the Aedui.

Your fortunes are tied to the Romans, for good or ill. Generally speaking, if the Arverni have the luxury to devote their undivided attention to the Aedui, things are going very, very badly for Caesar. Playing the Romans, I've usually found that any situation in which I'm doing a halfway decent job of containing the Belgae and Arverni, the Aedui just seem to magically sneak all over the board stealing everybody's allies. They found their way into Brittania and Germanica. If you're playing the Aedui, you remind the Romans that they are going to have a very tough time winning without your assistance, and they have an easier chance to win by being able to devote their time to defeating the other tribes and hoping they can come back and smack you down at the end. Which, if it gets to that point, you can make a lot harder for them to do than they maybe realize.
