Thanks, I've been thinking about getting this game but was on the fence. After reading this it sounds like a lot of fun and I think I'll pick it up and give some off these strategies a try.

I just had a glance at the linked article (thanks for the link) and one line struck me as funny:

"The best resource producing numbers are 6 and 8..."

This line really should read:

"Despite all evidence to the contrary that the best resource producing numbers are 6 and 8 you will find endless posts on boardgamegeek.com lamenting that in the game they played where they had both the 6 and the 8 their partner gained more resources on the 4 and the 10 (or some other combination of tiles) therefore there is need for a system to eliminate dice rolls as they are too random..."
