Like many of you, I'm addicted to Addiction. At least this is an addiction that keeps my mind sharp and everything. I keep seeing people who have a lot of trouble winning the game (and giving away their gifts), so I thought I'd start a thread of tips for winning in the game. At least my personal strategy is 1) always move cards are far to the right as possible. So, I basically fill in from right to left. 2) fill in behind Ks before opening up spaces after them. 3) save the bonus cards until as late as possible. Hope that helps. Any other ideas?

Sometimes it is worth undoing all that you have done, and trying to use another sequence to see if you can get more to fill in. Look to see before placing a 2, how many moves the various twos might lead to.

I look forward from my twos as well. Also, another trick along those lines is working backwards from a card you really want to move (often a K). So, if you had 9s _ _ _ 2d 3d 4d it's often worthwhile to see if you can work out how to clear out behind the 8s, move the 9s, then get 2d 3d 4d 5d 6d 7d into place. Good luck.
