Turtle

Typically a wing strategy for non-DM variants, you essentially perform a rush but defend (usually with the help of walls, hence "turtle") rather than attack. If done correctly, you won't need as many military units to fend off attacks, allowing you devote more resources and concentration on your economy, allowing you to out-boom your opponent and eventually overtake him.



Base Hug

A DM term (most commonly Mod), but could be applied to other situations as well. This is the same concept as a turtle. It involves concentrating your buildings around your capitol (and building backwards if needed). They'll contain a mix a production buildings, AA (if age permits), towers, and hospitals. An Ishtar Gates wonder is extremely beneficial if not essential.

As your enemy rushes you, unit AI has a harder time killing your units because the buildings become cannon fodder. Ideally, you should be killing his units as they come at you. This requires a great deal of micromanagement in later ages when siege (artillery) is prevalent. In the end, if you succeed, you should have lost fewer units, and therefore spent less resources. That allows you to counter attack an opponent who has already exhausted his, or allow you to start expanding into him if he (or his pocket) is too strong.

In Mod DM, this strategy is almost exclusively performed with ground units and using AA towers and/or pocket assistance for defense against air attacks. In some cases, such as in 2v2s or 1v1s on bigger maps, it would be wise to add in fighters for defending against a player who is massing air, and/or to add in bombers to take out enemy ground units that are bunched together (targeting artillery first). Even with air, most resources should be concentrated on ground units.



Expand

This means to take over the map with buildings and military presence literally block by block, moving outward from your starting base in the direction of the enemy. It involves making the same buildings in nearly the same fashion as a base hug, just with less production buildings. When you meet the enemy, you slowly pick away at him, pushing him further and further back, while you move closer and closer, until he eventually has nowhere to go.

This strategy is largely beneficial, but very time consuming. It creates a large, strong, defensive buffer between the front and your economy. This way, it will take your enemy a significant amount of time to plunge into your base, giving you a chance to redirect your forces to his attack or to rebuild lost army before he causes any notable damage. It also keeps the enemy from using said ground, which may be as simple as an open field where he stages attacks on you, or it may include valuable resources.

You need not keep a large army in front (which can be easily picked off by artillery or bombers), but you should still keep one of decent size none-the-less, placed a bit back in your territory, should your enemy mass units.
