My version of Warrior's Blood. Each player starts off in a corner (3,6,9, and 12) with a Wonder, a monk, 2 villagers (to repair things...), and several barracks, archery ranges, and stables. Paths lead from each players main gate to a center island. There are backdoors leading to your nearest neighbor, and each player has a small army to start with. There is also a forward base for each player on the center of the map consisting of 4 barracks. Upgrades at every 50 kills, up to 1000. Bonus troops are also given at every 50 kills; check near the flag in your base. Special bonus for killing buildings...Reinforcements arrive at your gate every 5 minutes. At higher kill counts, archers and later cavalry can be created.
Keep your wonder alive, at all costs, plain and simple :D
