Starweb is very similar to Havannah in both strategy and tactics and the relation between them. Where Havannah strategy is framed in the 'safety versus speed' dilemma, it is the 'equality versus minority' dilemma in Starweb. The game has 18 corners and their distribution and the way they are connected makes up the final count. 'Equality' means that both players occupy 9 corners, 'minority' refers to a 8/10 distribution (or 7/11, but you can only play that kind of minority against beginners). The minority player sacrifices a corner to prepare a cut of a potentially large group of the opponent and get more influence in the center, where it eventually all will be decided. It implies the use of groups that contain no corners and are as such without point value, but they cut the opponent's groups to lower their score.
