    Welcome to Forge of Empires! Take charge of a mighty empire: Build your city, lead it successfully through the ages, research new technologies, conquer the world and triumph over your opponents. Aim of the Game

    The road to success lies in the wise use of resources – only if you find the right balance between revenue and expenditures can you unlock new technologies, improve your city further and follow the path to fame and glory.

    The Ages

    You start as the leader of a small tribe. Over time you will develop yourself – you will explore new technologies, conquer territories and build your small village into a grand metropolis. The game is divided roughly into ages. You start off in the Stone Age, and will travel through the Bronze Age, Iron Age, the various phases of the Middle Ages, Colonial Age and Industrial Age. Then you can move into more recent times with the Progressive Era, Modern Era, Postmodern Era and Contemporary Era. After that, we will venture slightly into the Future and it will get a lot colder in the Arctic Future. You will reach a new age by unlocking a technology of that period in your research tree. Once you enter into a new age, you will receive a new city hall and your old one will automatically be replaced. In most cases, upon entry into a new age, you can immediately build a few buildings of that age.

    The Continent Map

    Developing and managing your city is not all. On the continent map, you can enlarge your empire as you bring it into your possession, province by province. It is worthwhile, because it provides you with valuable rewards. The continent map is divided into sections that roughly correspond to the game ages. Your progress on the map corresponds approximately to your growth in research. And behold - there is a whole world beyond the continent map, with other maps and more adventures.

    The City

    The nuts and bolts of a successful city is production. Only if you produce enough coins and supplies will you be able to get the newest buildings and military units. Be sure, though, to have as many residential buildings and production buildings as possible, since they give you your main income. Compare the buildings you are able to build carefully – there is always a building that is best suited to your playing style. Almost as important is the happiness level of your people, because if your citizens are happy, their production is much more efficient. So build cultural buildings and decorations, and always try to keep your people inspired.


    At the top of your city view in the center, there is a display showing your Forge Points. Every hour you get one more, until you have reached your maximum. These points are the engine that drives forth your empire: You need them to trade, to level up Great Buildings and, more importantly, for research. You conduct research by investing into technologies in the research tree with your points. If you have come up with the required amount and (if necessary) the unlocking costs, the advantages of the new technology will be available to you and you can build something new in your city from your building menu.


    On the left of the screen you will see portraits of your advisors. If you click on one, you can do quests for them. Quests let you delve deeper into the game world, and they tell you the history of the world, its countries and rulers.

    Fulfilling quests is worth it – because you get interesting rewards such as goods, coins, supplies, units that are not tied to slots in military buildings, and diamonds. There are basically two different types of quests. Your right hand man, Ragu Silvertongue, leads you through the main story. You cannot refuse his quests – you have to do them. At a later point in the game there will be a second questline with an additional storyline, quests which you can't abort either.

    Your other advisors give you very different assignments: Your architect Fernikus will often ask you to construct buildings, and your scientist Mandrubar will push for research. You can reject or discard those quests of your other advisors. There is no shame in doing so, and if you doubt a quest fits into your strategy, you can reject or discard it. This may even occasionally be necessary, because unlike the quests of Ragu Silvertongue, it might happen that your advisors gives you an unattainable quest. Most of the quests that you reject are, then, however, irrevocably gone, and you will get no chance to do them later. But this is no big deal – it's impossible to see all the quests in the game, and you will receive only tasks that are adequate for your current situation in the game – and often a variety of possible situations are included. Therefore, if you reject a specific quest, you will get another to replace it.

    Map and Battles

    You should never lose sight of the continent map. Acquire provinces, because only then will you get more expansions you can place in your city and can utilize essential good deposits. Whether you trade for your sectors or conquer them is your decision. At first, it is easy to defeat the armies of your enemy with military units, but soon the battles become more challenging.

    Prepare yourself well for this: pay close attention to what units your opponent has, and bring units on to the field which are a good match for them. In general terms, fast units are good at fighting against ranged units, and melee units are good against fast units. Ranged fighters in turn have an advantage against melee units. You can do more to increase your chances in battle: If you infiltrate a sector, the enemy units are already damaged at the beginning of the battle, which can provide a distinct advantage. Furthermore, if you are utilizing the terrain on the battlemap wisely, and always try to gang up on an enemy unit with several units of your own, you should prevail in battle and crush resistance.


    You are not alone in the world: In your neighborhood you can find other players with whom you can trade. If you deal well with others, they might visit your town and support you. Of course you can also visit cities and polish or motivate the buildings of your fellow players.

    This gives you a few extra coins that can be of good use early in the game, as well as a small chance to find a valuable blueprint-piece for a Great Building. Great Buildings will provide great advantages to any player that manages to build one. In addition to peaceful coexistence, you also have the opportunity to fight against your neighbors. If you and your attacking army defeat the defenders of the enemy, you can plunder a building – this can generate additional income, but you should realize that such behavior does not win you friends. However, if you participate in tournaments, you can get coveted medals, but there will be almost no way around having to fight a lot.


    After some time you will need goods. Always keep in mind and plan ahead as to ensure you never get to a point where you are stuck because you lack the necessary goods. You do not have to produce all the goods yourself – concentrate on those which you found good deposits for on the continent map. Team up with other players and trade these goods with them to get ones you don't have. You can also exchange goods with non-player dealers; but their exchange rate is so bad that you should do it only if you really have no other choice. There is also another way to get goods: If you employ your army, with skill and good timing, you can rob your neighbor of goods productions.


    Always plan ahead
    Remember to use your Forge Points before your Forge Point bar is full
    Make sure to start producing boosted goods as early as you can
    Use your boosted goods to trade on the market for goods you don't produce
    Use the space in your city as efficiently as you can
    Get all the expansions you can – they never expire and are essential for development
    Do not forget the daily bonus from your town hall
    Always pay attention to the level of happiness
    Visit the cities of other players and motivate or polish their buildings if you need to get coins fast
    In battle: infiltrate! Look at the enemy's set up and employ counter units, use terrain advantages and attack a unit with several units!
    You can find small incidents in your city and the surrounding land, coast and sea.

    Forge of Empires Strategy Guide

    The following is the lesson I learned while navigating the fun and very addicting simulation game Forge of Empires.

    Are you Ready!

    Follow what you're told to do!

    Honestly, it's that simple. The objective of the game is to progress through your empire, travelling the various western civilized cultures and acquiring new knowledge along the way.

    And while there are side quests, guilds to join, and the occasional trade to be made, the honest to god truth is just do what you're told.

    Need to research a new production building?

    Research it!

    Oh, what's that you say... you don't have enough forge points?

    Here's the second lesson...


    The hook of the game is the need for diamonds, which is a red herring. So far, I've navigated to the Early Middle Ages without spending a penny on this game...

    How you might ask?


    That's it. Just wait for more research points. Every day, without clicking a single mouse button, you can earn 10 forge points for just having a kingdom. No bullshit, no hidden agenda. Just wait patiently and you will receive what you need. Which brings us to another great point!

    Help other people out!

    Honestly, this one is even simpler. Every day, during a 24 window, you have the option of aiding other empires. It costs nothing and better yet, you get rewarded for helping those who might one day help you.

    No, I'm not talking about the Christian tap on the back, but actual gold for your support of other empires.

    Sounds easy enough...

    Are you starting to see something here?

    This game is a great way to teach humility and discipline, and for those aspiring emperors out there, listen up!

    This game will teach you how to start your own empire. But the secret is, are you willing to do it without spending a dime? And do you have what it takes to wait for what is coming to you, or will you flame out like those other losers blowing a fortune on a game that was designed to be free?

    The choice is yours my friend. Choose Wisely!

    Daily Challenges/Tips and Tricks

    • "Complete other quests" task can be finished by doing Story Quests, Bonus Quests, Event Quests and Recurring Quests.

    • If you finish all 4 levels in Guild Expeditions before receiving the corresponding task, all expedition-related tasks will auto complete.

    • "Defeat units" & "Win battles" tasks count all units/battles done in Guild Expeditions, Neighborhood, Continent Maps, including the Guild vs Guild maps.

    • For the "Defeat units" task, it is unnecessary to win the fight - you can just abort it before your own units take damage. You can do this in GE fights or better leave a sector of an early province unconquered but infiltrated and attack repeatedly the same, until you reach the necessary kill count. Best choose a sector for this that has no artillery and few to none fast units. Remember to abort the fight before all enemy units are dead, so the sector stays unconquered. If you use artillery units only, you usually do not even take damage.

    • Have at least 1 province scouted and ready for you if you do not fight in GE and do not attack your neighbor. Do not conquer all available provinces, leave some easy ones from previous eras for the Acquire tasks for Daily Challenges & Event Quests.
      • For advanced players who have finished the entire Continent Map, no challenge will come which will require you attack/ conquer/ negotiate/ acquire x sectors of/ scout a province. The thing to be kept in mind is that even if you have one unconquered province on the map, you may still get these quests.

    • " Finish productions" tasks can be done by building many Blacksmiths. They use  2x2 space and help you not to disturb your usual productions. If your task is to finish 5-min or 15-min productions, be sure to initially use all your production boosts provided by Lighthouse of Alexandria & Royal Albert Hall, so they would not be wasted on unneeded supply collections.

    • "Collect  Goods" tasks will also count all goods you get from the Market and those that you get from GBs boosts like Aid Goods. Apparently plunder boosts (Double Plunder & Plunder Goods) are counted as well.

    • "Collect  Tavern silver" tasks. Collecting from your own tavern and also tavern silver you get (with 20% chance) while visiting friends' taverns counts towards the number of Tavern silver you need to collect. You can increase amounts of silver you get by upgrading tray & floor in your own Tavern.

    • There are tasks that require you to activate Tavern Boosts. No need to worry if you have 24h, 48h or 72h Tavern Boosts active. In this case you will not receive tasks to activate them.

    • "Collect  Coins /  Supplies" tasks count all your collections. Meaning you can build & delete a building, and all resources you get from it will be counted towards your task's goal. And coins you get from aiding will also be counted. Remember that you get 25% of the building's initial cost of coins & supplies if you sell it. This does not apply to premium buildings. Diamonds spent to buy premium buildings are not refunded if you sell it! (Initial cost is the cost, stated in the wikia; Real cost is the cost you get if you are a member of a Guild. Because of its Building Rebate guild level boost, you need lesser amounts of coins/supplies to build a building)

    • You should try NOT to visit many taverns (if your counter resets at that time or your friends clear chairs at that time) starting from 4-6 hours to go for a new Daily Challenge.

    A game walkthrough is a guide aimed towards improving a players skill within a particular game and often designed to assist players in completing either an entire game or specific elements. Walkthroughs may alternatively be set up as a playthrough, where players record themselves playing through a game and upload or live-stream it to the internet. Walkthroughs may be considered guides on helping to enhance the experience of players, to assist towards unlocking game achievements or simply as a means to socialise with like-minded individuals as a distraction from everyday life. Walkthroughs originated as text-based descriptive instructions in magazines for playing through a video game.
