* Play the NOVICE version first to learn how to control the bird. Try keeping your flight even and steady, rather than bouncing off of ledges.
* Stay away from the sides of the jousting arena, since a Buzzard Rider or Pterodactyl could appear unexpectedly.
* Collect eggs quickly after they reach the ground. If you wait too long, they'll hatch into new Buzzard Riders.
* Clear your screen of opponents as quickly as possible. The pterodactyl will appear if you wait too long.
* Stay as high as possible on the screen, then drop down on your opponents.
