Strategy Guides

The strategy and tips on this page are grouped into three different catagories: Beginner articles for new players and players who are still trying to figure out the basics to the game and its strategy, Intermediate articles for players who have a grasp of the basics of the game but want to become top-level players, and Expert articles that contain strategies only the pros use. No matter what skill level you’re at, you can find strategies that will help you out.

“Tips” articles feature short pieces of advice about various aspects of the game, divided into appropriate sections, such as “Romans”, “Gauls”, “Teutons”, “Defending”, “Endgame”, etc.

This section is an ongoing work in progress, and will be updated and added to as time goes on.

If you would like to submit a strategy article, please contact me at Even if you’re an intermediate player, you can write a strategy guide for beginners (In fact, an intermediate player is probably better suited to give guidance to a beginner than an expert player!)
