* CherryTapping: Roads again. Your average road will likely get you about 3-4 points, but because you may only need to place one or two tiles to complete a road, it can be give you a small influx of "now" points which can add up over the course of a game.

Added DiffLines:

* EnemyMine: Actually a good strategy when playing with more than two players. For instance, Alice, Bob, and Charlie are all playing. Alice is in the lead with 60 points. Bob has 50 and Charlie is in last with 20. Charlie has a city nearly completed and Bob draws a piece that can finish Charlie's city while also allowing Bob to share it. Bob places the piece so that he and Charlie both get 20 points from it. Bob is now ahead of Alice by 10 points while Charlie is still too far behind to matter. That said, beware that ChronicBackstabbingDisorder is possible, if not likely...

* TheChessmaster: The best players are always thinking a few steps ahead. Do you see that guy with his meeple spaced around the board on random bits of cities? Give him a few turns and suddenly he'll be sharing your cities, stealing your commodities, and plunking cathedrals down in your other nearly-finished cities to make sure you get no points from them.

Added DiffLines:

** Not playing with Farms is a common house rule. Farm scoring is one of the more confusing aspects to inexperienced players, so they are often left out.
** Playing from a "hand" of 3 tiles rather than always playing the tile you draw is another. It allows for a bit more strategy and downplays the luck elements slightly.

Added DiffLines:

* DeathOrGloryAttack: Placing a Cathedral in one of your cities. If you're able to complete that city, it will be worth 50% more. If not, you get no points for the city during the final tally. Placing an Inn along a road is similar, but less severe since it's generally easier to complete a road and roads are generally worth less than cities.

* AwesomeButImpractical: Building massive cities (10+ tiles.) They can potentially get you a ''ton'' of points, especially with Expansions that add Commodities and the like to cities, but can easily be disrupted and made impossible to finish by a single stray tile placed by an opponent. It's generally best to close cities as quickly as possible for this reason.
