When playing multiplayer Super Mario Bros. (for Wii) A-strategy is the act of pressing the A button when on the verge of dying, this so the other player can pop you out of the bubble when he/she is safe.

Not to be confused with A-panic which is the spontaneous act of prematurely pressing the A button when you obviously don't need to.
"Hmm, I'm falling to my death, let me perform the A-strategy so I can safely float in my bubble towards the other player who's actually making this horrible jump!"
