The goal is to capture the Opponent’s Capital or have the most tiles by the end of the timer. You must Claim tiles by buying them or Capture tiles with the Armies you send from your structures. By spreading out on the map and claiming Villages, you will receive a timed income. With that income, you can train Armies, build structures, build Houses, or upgrade structures.

Game Mechanics
Actions are done by spending Gold. Gold is collected through Villages over time, shown in the bottom left. Claim neutral tiles by paying 1 Gold, or send Armies to capture them. You can only capture Opponents tiles using Armies. Any disconnected tiles from your Capital are lost. Surrounding Opponent’s or neutral tiles captures all inner tiles. Work your way to the Opponent’s Capital to win or defend the most tiles until the timer runs out.
1. Capturing and Claiming tiles is essential. Spread out to capture Villages and gain positioning to defend and attack.
2. Secure Opponent’s or neutral Villages to gain money over time - destroying them with Armies secures instant income. 
3. Conquer the map! Villages and chances to flank your opponent are hidden in the fog.
4. Be careful about how much money you spend! A higher income does not guarantee a win if the money is wasted.
5. Send your Armies with purpose. A well-timed deployment can be a huge advantage.
6. Capturing the Capital is one way to win - but defending the most tiles until the timer runs out secures a win.
