Strategy

  The below is one of many player suggested strategies for Style. Bear in mind, due to the dynamic nature of the game, it may unfold differently for other players.

If you don't have a strategy for the country, simply put {{add|strategy}}. If a strategy guide exists add {{add/strategy}} instead.

Though a strict adherence to the style guidelines is not enforced, please try to follow it as much as possible -- use 3rd person language (the player/England) rather than 1st (I/we) or 2nd (you) person language, don't use too much icons to keep section readable, and be sure to apply some general common sense. If a guide is bad (offensive or too incomprehensible) it will still be removed.

Other than above, write anything you feel might be useful in the guide.

Finally, leave the following at the end of the page, replacing "Europe" with the continent the country is on (your strategy will only be added to this box if it is at least B-ranked):
