Not mentioned in the video:
Official rules states that you should start in the middle. I forget that we play a variant where we basically let anyone choose where they are for starting position (even with multi-player, it works fine so long as pawns don’t start right next to each other).
PRO-TIP!: Try to make your opponent use walls sooner so that you can adapt to something that is closer to the final “maze” structure and waste as few moves as possible.
PRO-TIP!: Play your walls as late as possible so that your opponent had to waste moves re-adapting.
