GoodGame Empire is a game all ages should play including kids, teenagers, adults and even eldery people.
The first thing you should know is that this game is a real-time multiplayer game. You are playing with real players, with the exception of Robber Baron Castles, Samurai Camps, Lion/Bear Camps, Foreign Castles/Bloodcrows and Nomad Camps. You start with a wooden keep and wooden walls. You can build woodcutters, stone quarries, and farmhouses for the military, Barracks, Guardhouses, Hospital, Stronghold, and many more. You can station an amount of troops to guard your wall and castle. The amount of troops you can hold on the wall is determined by what level towers you have. Your wall and gate offer extra protection, which increases as you upgrade them. You can also make a Defense Workshop and a Siege Workshop, You can produce resource tools like Hurling rocks and Castle Gate Reinforcements, or Tar pitch kettles or a Portculis. From level 37, you can dig a moat around your castle.
The production of each resource per hour depends on the respective levels and quantities of the production buildings. Castles and Outposts have different workloads for each resource. Once you reach this limit, resource production will decline as the workload does too. A main castle has a 100% resource production workload for three buildings. Outposts typically have a 100% workload for wood/stone, and a 100% workload for food. Super Outposts, which have bubbles around them, have a 100% workload for 8 production buildings there are many types of ops (outposts)
The next thing are espionage agents and city guards. Espionage agents can look at other castles defenses (real players and Robber Barons!) or tell you how many of each resource or troop they have. You can set each mission to a different accuracy level. The higher the accuracy, the better risk of being caught. More agents reduce the chances of being detected. You get agents from the number of Taverns you build and how well you upgrade them. The way to prevent successful espionage is to build many guardhouses, which add 5 city guards every time you upgrade them. Sabotage agents can set enemy buildings on fire. However, if you are caught, it will be seen by the other player. Attacking players is not a good idea, the alliances may go to war, he/she may be sent support, or you can be kicked from an alliance.
Then we have horses, which are unlocked through building the Stables. They can increase the speed of your army. They have 3 different speeds, one costs coins, and the other two cost Rubies. Attacking Robber Barons is a good way to get equipment and rubies for free. You can equip the items you find to make commanders more powerful in the Encampment. Every time you upgrade the encampment, you gain 3 more commanders to equip. Here are the qualities of equipment and their matching colors. You can merge 6 equipment items to make an item of better quality.
You would want to start with a good alliance. I suggest joining up with SpartaElite. Their leader is Mortfeet. join them! They are great!
If you join a big alliance, you may be involved in the current Server War, a fight between many large alliances and their subs. Some big name ones are KON, Kingdom of Neph, who have many subs, MISC, a large alliance at war with KON. Apparently the war was a small feud, and then became the slaughter of many soldiers. The whole battle s a misunderstanding. KON states they never stole outposts.
