I recently purchased Alexandros and after a few games I found that getting a head start makes you the primary target for land-takeovers. A slow start can also cost you the game, however, and make it very difficult to catch up.

Being targeted for land takeover twice can leave you trailing so badly that it's impossible to come back. Usually, the player in second place benefits the most.

Are there any strategies to mitigate this?

I would appreciate any comments to explain why this question warrants a close vote. I disagree that this question is too broad; I am asking about a specific case, not strategies for the game as whole. –  Mohamad Feb 28 '14 at 12:43
I disagree with the close flags. I think all that was required was a minor title change. –  Alex P Feb 28 '14 at 18:03
I suggest you post this on the main SE site, so someone can write a good program for it, later someone else who understands it can give you an answer on this site. –  ghosts_in_the_code Jan 13 at 14:34
Also, does the game depend on chance or hidden info, or is it completely open. –  ghosts_in_the_code Jan 13 at 14:35
