Sit between the two best players and don't make any terrible mistakes. whistle

Seriously though, if there is a variety of skill sets then this will give a huge advantage.

Interesting - not something I considered (I haven't played the game yet).

I think the best way to win at B2C or B2CoMKL is to *talk to the players on your left and right* - i.e. have a lovely discussion on what tiles you should choose for each city/castle, where to place them, and you can even hint about what sort of things they should be looking for (especially if you've just passed them one of those things). You're allowed to discuss strategy with your partners in between turns and while placing tiles, just not while *choosing* tiles.

Some of it is, of course, luck of the draw, but there's so many different ways to score in B2Castles, that everyone's pretty much on an even footing. (Less so in B2C, but with the Captials expansion, there's more things to think about to improve your score).
