Hint #1 - Battleship: Beware The Clump
When a player hits a ship, they usually expore in all directions from that point. If all your ships are clumped together, they'll be found more easily.
Hint #2 - Battleship: Know Thy Enemy
Get an idea of how your opponent is playing. Many people will stick to similar (but not identical strategies) every time they play.
Hint #3 - Bop It!: Listen Carefully
If you take too long, you'll time out, but you still have to listen carefully so you don't do the wrong action. Remember: one mistake and you're out.
Hint #4 - Connect 4: Three Directions
Remember Horizontal (side-to-side), Vertical (up-and-down), and Diagonal are all ways to win.
Hint #5 - Connect 4: Defensive Vs Offensive
While the obvious thing is to prevent your opponent from winning, it's important to put your pieces where they need to be in order to win. You don't get a victory just for not losing.
Hint #6 - Connect 4: Play From Both Ends
Any time you can get three (3) in a row with both ends (of the three) unblocked, your opponent can only block one in their next turn. The same thing applies to any time you have two three-in-a-row situations at the same time with the fourth spot redy to have a piece dropped into it.
Hint #7 - Connect 4: Um... DUH!!!
Seriously..., don't tell your opponent what you have planned!!!
Hint #8 - Operation: Watch The Movement
Before moving the item, see how it moves (and how often), so that it doesn't come as a surprise to you half way through.
Hint #9 - Operation: Drag And Stop And Drag Again
There are areas around the pathway that are wider and that can accomodate the item's movement. If you need to pause, do so.
