Re: Helpful Tips and Tricks

To maximize ambassador count, allow six villages to be established before finishing any village's first project. This allows you to get your first 6 ambassadors from basic projects, and can put you on the way to having 4 ambassadors for some or all giants towards the end (of a 2 hour era). To accomp...

Re: Punished into submission?

You can also use the water giant's ocean and mountain giant's mountain abilities to make a village submit. Use the ability such that at least one tile of its effect overlaps with the village. The village will not be destroyed (nor will the terrain change) until the village health decreases to 0 and ...

Re: How many cillages do you aim for?

I start with 6 and whittle it down to 3 or 4 by the end of a 2 hour game. As you said, having six villages means you are limiting the space each village has once borders have expanded.

It also doesn't seem to effect the mountain giant when cast directly on him. And it can get a bit won...

Re: Spikes in greed

I've noticed this as well. I believe it's from new projects being started. Since a project gives bonuses as soon as it starts, late game projects can boost a village's resources by several hundred depending on the specializations it gets.

Re: Why I stopped playing within the first 10 minutes

So I used the cheat posted above just to see what happens and all my unlocks have been removed (I had just a few of the 3 stars ones remaining). Let this be a warning to anyone who was thinking of doing the same. The strange part is the achievements from my steam account have also been removed. I'm ...
