“If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles”
– Sun Tzu

Can you find all of Max's tips?
There are 16 of them hidden in the image below.  Click on the image to enlarge it.

Did you find all of them?  There are more ……. but don’t think I’ll be telling you my best ones!  I’d still like to beat you at GEIST!!!   Max
For a shorter game, just deal out fewer GEIST Cards per player at the beginning of play.

While gathering chips to capture your Geist, you can simplify your movements by staying within a single triangle on the board, and use the cheat sheet below.  When you are close to obtaining the lure of the Geist, navigate towards its headstone, picking up the last few chips you need along the way to maximize the efficiency of your moves.

You can land on:
2, 4, 6, 15, and certain 1s
3, 5, 10, and certain 1s
3, 5, and certain 1s
2, 4, 15, 20, and certain 1s
2, 4, 6, 15, 20, and certain 1s
2, 6, 15, 20, and certain 1s
2, 4, 6, 15, 20, and certain 1s
4, 6, and certain 1s

Due to the symmetry of the board, this cheat sheet works anywhere on the board for the big numbers such as 20, 15 and 10.  For example, if a 20 can land you on a 15, it can land you on any 15 on the board.   However, a 3 can only land you on a 15 that is 3 steps away, and not any 15 on the board.

 To capture a Geist:
    1.  You must land on the Geist's Headstone.
    2.  Pick up the last chip you need for the exact lure (no more, no less) of the Geist.
    3.  Show your chips to the other players before returning them.
    4.  Then lay the Geist Card down, straight and face-up in front of you.
