When starting the game, travel over to the red ant nest. Pick up a small bolder, walk over to the opening to the nest, and drop the bolder on the opening. This will trap the red ants in their nest for awhile. While trapped, your ants will have a chance to get the food, while the red ants slowly starve in their nest. The red ants will eventually dig another tunnel exit, but by then your black ants should be superior in numbers, strength, and food supply. When they are ready, attack the red nest while their health is very low.
