We were going to do a Top 10 list, but decided that eight is a better number. First of all, top tens are a bit cliché as a general rule in this day and age. And as anyone who managed to survive the dreaded late 70s or early 80s will tell you, eight is enough!
The following list contains plenty of useful tips for new players, and is primarily focused on aspects of the game that may be less obvious, but are incredibly useful to know about. A few of the tips listed do have some crossover with topics that we’ve covered with more complete guides, but for the most part we tried to make sure it contains plenty of value in its own right without having to refer to much larger topics.
