I started playing Tribal Wars in 2008 and was hooked, now I just can't stop playing
Why so popular
The game is a browser based game, so, no software is needed, just a computer with a web browser.
Tribal Wars is free, you can purchase a premium account which has many additional features.
Starting with a single village which you build up and inhabit with various types of troops, you can conquer other villages and grow, the beginning of the game is not fast, your first village will take a couple of months to be fully operational, a world can last for years before there is a winning tribe.
In the .net server there are players in different time zones around the world, so the action never really stops.
Tribal Wars Stats map is a versatile map tool which enables you to view different tribes and players on your world.
Below: map view in Tribal wars, players and tribes can be coloured, selected info about your village is also visible from this view.
Below: combined view of your villages, showing troop numbers.
Below: fully developed village.
So far the best I've managed is 4 million points, took a couple of years to reach that, but, with 400 villages plus it was very time consuming and I eventually quit because it was not longer fun.
