Camels and Heavy Camels: Strong vs about all other cavalry, but weak to Infantry and archers

Knights, Cavalies, and Paladins: High attack,good for almost any battle, and good armor, good vs Archers and good for attacking siege weapons afar. Weak vs Mamelukes and Pikemen and Camels.

I will list more soon, but you can read about weakness and strong points in your guide book.

Destroy buildings​

If you press ''DEL'' while you have selected a building or unit it will be utterly destroyed (this doesn't work with the enemy)

Easy win in multiplayer​

Tell your opponent if you want 1million resources and population then type givemeallmymoneynoworelse=-=-=-=&^%$
in 20 times. It won't really work but it will give you time to attack but make sure you have a big army before you tell them.

Fast Resources​

Use the following trick to rapidly enter the cheat codes and get resources quickly. For wood, press Enter, type lumberjack, highlight the word, then press Ctrl + C to copy it. Press Enter to activate the cheat. Press Enter again, then press Ctrl + V to paste the word on the screen for activation. Repeat to get resources quickly. This may be used with the rock on, robin hood, cheese stack jimmy's, and to smithereens codes.

Free Ally​

When you build a market, there is a chance that a rival tribe will ask you to send them a certain amount of wood, stone, gold, and food. When they do, click on "Diplomacy" or press Alt + D and click "Ally" on the name of that tribe. They will become an ally free of charge. However, when you do this you will no longer be able to align yourself with any other tribes. This is helpful if there are four tribes in the game.

Get The Stone​

Press "ENTER" then type the letters: rock on. You only need to type "rock on" and you will receive 1000 stone.


While you are playing a single player game press the enter button. This will bring up a chat box.While in the chat box type 7 days until you die. Then press enter button again to enable this cheat. This will make your units and buildings take no damage and will not die.

Machine Gunners​

For this cheat your must have CREATED a map with at least one SHAH on it. (to create a shah, go to heroes and press "S". Then, play the map and select your sha, bring it over to an enemy unit / building (preferably a house) and right click on that object. The shah will begin attacking it! The only drawback is that the shah has very little attack.

More Bases Advantage​

To have a better chance of winning, you might want to build more than one base. Enlarge the base you start out with, making it completely fortified with at least two castles. Then, send a scout cavalry, or some other fast moving unit, to the opposite side of the map from your base. After you have checked the area and confirmed that it is safe, send a villager to build a castle at that location and fortify that base. This is very helpful if your enemy knows where one of your bases is located, especially during online play.

Quick Creating​

Press return and then type: 'under the bridge' and everything will move fast!

Some Battle Tips​

If you dont care about other units, just so you can win, then you should try to make as many Knights as possible, because there really strong and fast. Also,you should create a big number of your unique units. This will come in handy. Also, to have some fun you can make a large army of Archers and be almost invincible!

Starting tips!​

This If you start out with just three villagers and a town center and a scout. (the normal) I start out with one villager making 2 or 3 houses while 1 starts cutting down the trees by the town center. The last one should herd in the sheep close by your town center.Then make about as many villagers as you can with your food. Evenly, sort out your new villagers back to food gathering and wood gathering until you have enough villagers to gather stone and gold.When you build it would be wise to build out a little ways out of the town center so enemy's will have a hard time reaching your main part of town.

In Early times of your game you should start making cheap archers, just to get enough time to get to the better soldiers. If you have "All VISIBLE" or "MARCO and POLO" and you see your enemy's with little or short amounts of buildings or soldiers dont take them as a weak enemy because they can start army's and attacks any time! If you start out with many resources then you could research stuff that will help you gather resources faster!
