CTRL+C  View End Sequence 


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.

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.
