I have always found that if I am able to get couple of bases made in this game that I can win just be the fact that I have a lot of resources.  A lot could be said for real life too.

Just like in the game, if I can somehow master two or three sources of passive income and then focus on what important (like getting attacked in the game for instance), then imagine all the stuff you could do!

In the game I know how to do this, but in real life it is a lot harder.  Any ideas?
