I think I may wait until the second-to-next though, so as to give me time to brush up on the rules. Also, as it's likely I'll be adding a new player, something everyone else is familiar with would probably be best.Spooky,A strategy I developed during Fastlane playtesting was to bid against myself. This is, I think, what Alex means when he says playing it safe. Split your bid between alternating bets. For instance, if you're bidding 5, bid three black, two red. If you get red, then you have a total of 4 chips to use in the conflict. If you get black, you have 6.Also, strongly consider favoring your lucky number. If your lucky number is black, bid black. If it's in the middle strip, bid the middle strip. This means that if your lucky number does come up, you cash in multiple ways. Finally, your players should understand up front that Fastlane isn't a game about winning and going home victorious. Unless you hit your lucky number, chances are pretty good that you're going to burn out and use it all up. That's important. If you can't accept that basic truth, you're going to have trouble with the game. If you can accept it, and you're willing to tell that kind of story, then you're good as gold.
