Shogun Wars is a free, online strategy game where you play the role of a Shogun in medieval Japan.
Turn-Based Play:Every half hour a turn happens. During a turn you get more gold to spend on new troops & technologies. You also get a certain amount of attack turns and covert turns that you can spend by going to war with your enemies and/or sending ninjas into enemy camps to keep tabs on rival players. Player rankings are calculated at the beginning of each half hour turn.
Every night another turn happens. During this turn, new troop replacements come in to replace casualties that may have occurred during the day.
Real-Time Play:When you attack another player or send ninjas on a recon mission, this happens in real time. You may also: send messengers to other players, buy new weapons, buy upgraded technology, or send your ninjas on a mission of theft. These aspects of the game all happen in real time.
Clans:One of the first things you will be asked to do is pick a clan. There are four clans total, each with a specialty skill which gives them a bonus in a certain area. To choose a clan, simply ask yourself how you are most likely to play. If you plan to be aggressive you should probably choose Mantis, defensive players will most likely want to play the Tiger Clan, players interested in specializing in ninja abilities should consider the Scorpions, and lastly players that are not very sure or want to have the most flexibility should choose Crane. For more information on clans, visit the story of Shogun Wars page.
Technologies:Currently there are four technologies that will help you grow in size and power.
