Hex strategy is the planning and decision-making based on incomplete information about the details of variations and related decision-making. Preferably, strategy leads to victory or at least an improved position and considers the global position.
In contrast to strategy, Hex tactics refers to reasonably complete reading of move sequences, their variations and related decision making. Tactics can, but need not, be restricted to a local area.
