Terrain Tiles

There are 4 types of terrain generated on a map:

  • Fields (Yellow) - allows the conversion to a Farm (produces crops)
  • Forest (Dark Green) - allows the conversion to a Samill (produces lumber)
  • Mountains (Gray) - allows the conversion to a Mine (produces extra gold)
  • Plains (Light Green) - nothing


Note: When an enemy is on a building tile, the production is cut off until the enemy has left.
The main purpose of cities is to be able to train more Units per turn (but also gain more resources).

Boom refer to an economic boom, a strategy where the player focuses almost exclusively on their economy instead of investing resources for military purposes. It is commonly used to counter the Turtle strategy as a boom economy can very easily outperform a turtling economy in the late game.

  • Focus on gaining lumber and crops through making cities, as those resources take longer


Turtle strategies typically involve the massing of armies and/or economies behind fortifications. "Turtling" is most common counter to rushs. The utility of turtling inevitably diminishes when catapults start rolling out on the field.

  • Focus on quickly producing cheap troops such as Warriors and Archers


Rush refers to a military strategy emphasizing rapid build-up as early as possible (Counters Boom). To implement this strategy, the player should focus almost exclusively on building troops to harass the enemy economy in the shortest possible amount of time.

  • Focus on trying to block production (by placing units on top of enemy buildings)

Combo Units

Some units are a perfect match for each other, and may outperform enemies even at a unit size disadvantage.

  • Horsemen and Archer
  • Catapult and Swordsmen
  • ... and more!
