Recently I started playing Starcraft again. It's been over five years, and man, it shows. I suxor. Anyway, in getting my l33t strats back, I came across this easy strat against noobs. Now everyone has heard of the 2/3 gateway Zealot/Dragoon builds, and the years have shown that they are very effective against real players. But against noobs, and AI, there is one surefire strategy that will let you win every time.

1) Build 8 or 9 drones to start off with, get them hammering at the minerals. After you have enough for a Pylon, take a drone and build one near your enemy's base. You need to judge this spot well - it has to be close enough to trap him/her inside his/her base, and yet far away enough to not be attacked by any early Marines/Zerglings/Zealots.

2) Build a Pylon at base, and build a Forge.

3) Build a Photon Canon at your outpost Pylon.

Rinse, repeat 3.

Basically, keep pumping out Cannons at your outpost until you have 5 or 6. Then go for a Gateway and start pumping out Zealots. Fortify your outpost well, and early - the Zerg especially will rush early game, but if you have enough Photon Cannons, their attacks will be easily repulsed. Your next move should be to secure all mineral resources on the map in a similar manner. In a nutshell, just camp and starve them out.

Well, that's it. Although it's a camping strat that is heavily based on static defence, it works great against noobs and AI. :-) It could have been more detailed, I know, but er, I was lazy.
