Capture as many gems as possible as this gives you more options to win the game.
When capturing think if the capture leads to a quick end of turn or if capturing from the next vault leads to more captures. Also think if the move makes your defense stronger or weaker.
Movement and captures that give you a full loop on your side of the board give more chances for future capture but also leave your gems exposed to capture by the opponent.
Analyze the strengths, weaknesses of your position and those of the opponent and see what opportunities or threats exist in the positions.
Remember the reverse capture for your self and that the opponent can use this as well.
When short of Gems use defensive tactics to minimize losses and use the opponents weaknesses to plan for a recovery capture.
When playing higher levels or experienced players, proper defense of your starting positions can make the difference between winning or losing. Forcing the opponent to make errors can be a useful opening tactic.
Make sure your sums and movement plans add up correctly as errors can cost you the game.
The Gemtactix game is derived from mancala games played across Africa and the Middle East, in particular the variant mancala games played in Eastern and Central Africa. The origin of the games are a mystery: however what is known is that they have been played for many centuries as a social pastime for communities on Earth.
These mancala games have similarities to Chess and Draughts board games as explained in the comparison page link below.
