Starting with a small village in the Stone Age your task is to create a big and powerful empire and lead your people into future ages. To reach this goal, you have to build residential buildings to increase your population and to provide coins for your city. You need population available to build production buildings to produce supplies and other resources. Building decorations and cultural buildings will increase the happiness of your population which will make your people work more effectively and produce more goods.
Another important thing is research to learn new techniques and to gain access to new building plans. Therefore you have to invest Forge Points into the things you want to research. Forge Points recover in a rate of 1 Point per hour up to a maximum of 10. Besides Forge Points you have to invest some specific resources to unlock the research result. Each research is assigned to certain time period of the human history. When you successfully researched your first technique of an Age your population officially entered that age and your town hall automatically receives and upgrade to produce more coins.
It is also important to train military units to build up an army to expand your empire. Acquire a new province by acquiring all it's sectors either via battles or negotiating. Battles are fought with up to 8 units in a turn-based strategic battle.
There is also a possibility to build Great Buildings representing popular buildings from the real world like the Statue of Zeus or Notre Dame. Building and upgrading these Great Buildings costs a lot resources and effort, but they bring great bonuses depending on which building was built, e.g. the Tower of Babel produces some random goods every day.
