Comment: Casual and rly simple game, but somehow u get addicted to it and wana play more.
When i started to play it, i wasnt convinced that i will continue to play, but more i played i got more addicted.
On beginning we can chose 1 of 3 nations: Stompers, Ironheads, Gold beasts, every nation gives us some specific bonuses (attack, defense, money income, or intel)
Limited number of turns and cap on 100, force u to play it every day if u wana be one of the best.
In game we have 100 turns, taking money consume 5 turns, getting troops consume 4 turns, also if we want to attack we need 3 turns to do it, and if we run spy mission we need 1 turn. With that limit, u rly need to think how i will u spent it, will u maxing troops 1st or u will build defense and offence so u can protect yourself or attack some one. More troops we build more gold we get, but we arent protected vs enemy. Attack makes u lose troops and money and that is good way to keep some1 behind u. More defense we have less troops and gold will we lose.
Adding defense and offence can be dont in armory where we can buy armorand weapons. In barracks we can buy spies or train troops to increase off and deff stats.
I started to play this game few weeks after i came to forum and i still play it.
I recommend it to all pll who like casual games

Comment: Ogre wars is a turn based browser game.
Its a strategy game where you need to Recruit troops and when you got enough troops you need to invest in work to get gold. For gold you can buy defensive or offensive structures or weapons. You can attack different enemies and send spies to scout them. Really interesting game, and popular on gameogre.com. I rate this game with the note 8/10!

Comment: Trully interesting Ogre game with a lot of participants atm.
It’s based on strategy and carefully balancing your resources. The game lets u choose among three classes – Iron Heads, Gold Blasts and the stompers, with Iron Heads being most played right now. Every players has a max of 100 turns to invest in either training troops for their village or gathering income (training troops using 4 of your possible 100 turns, and gathering income using 5). U get 50 spies when u start the game but u can train some more if u want. When u think u r ready u can start siege on other villages. One attack raid consumes three turns and it can either be a succesful one or a failed mision. U can also send spies to gather some intel before u attack. In the game u can access your armory and baracks. In armory u can spend the gold u gathered to buy armor or weapons for your troops. U can go to baracks to train your troops or gather some more spies if needed. Think this game is really, really interesting and every Ogre should give it a shot. 🙂

Comment: For me this is the best Ogre game 🙂 It has nice idea, three ”rase” and fight between them. Love that buying stuffs, like weapons, you need more golds for better weapon… Other thing, for me are not important number of troops because I have sometimes 4-5k troops and won someone who has more then 10-20k… You just need to have good weapons, Armory and Barracks to max level.
Nice game, you should try it…

Comment: Ogre Wars is a teamwork based textual turn-based strategy game, with its longest season so far, season 4, coming to an end at the moment.

This is a relatively simple game at the moment, with not too many options, but that doesn’t mean it ain’t interesting. Players of this game are divided into nations, and can work together on making a nation grow, or other nations fall in a battle for supremacy. They can do so by defending their players from attacks from opposing nations, allowing them to grow, or by attacking opposing nations together.

There are several ways to make a player’s own village stronger in this game. For example, a player can recruit more troops, which gives it a basic increase of attack and defense for the cost of 4 turns. In order to further increase attack or defense, gold can be used to purchase weapons for troops, which will increase village’s attack rating, or that very same gold can be used to purchase armor for village’s troops, increasing defense rating of the village. Those ratings can further be enhanced by training village’s troops in the village barracks, where a one time sum of gold is used to permanently increase village’s attack or defense ratings, depending on the chosen training.

Another aspect of this game that should be considered is spying. Normally, when a player looks at villages of other players, they’re only able to see their troop count, but not their attack/defense ratings, nor the amount of gold they posses. In order to see this, a player need to conduct successful spying operations at the cost of a single turn.

Spies are special troops that don’t count in overall troop count of a village, which are recruited for a small amount of gold, and which also cost a little bit of gold each turn. They are used both for spying operation and for defense against opposing players spying operations. It should be noted that spies can bring inaccurate information as well in case when they manage to overwhelm defending spies, but not by a big enough margin.

Opposing villages can be attacked by simply clicking on attack raid button. When this action is performed, game calculates the outcome of the battle based on the attacker’s attack rating, and defenders defense rating, and a bit of random factor (the actual battle attack rating can be anywhere between 50-150% of attacker’s attack rating, and actual defense rating is 50-150% of defender’s defense rating) . The one with the higher rating wins the battle, and in case of it being the attacker, gold is transferred from defender’s village to attacker’s, in the amount of troops that attacker has. In case of defender winning, no gold is transferred. In both cases, both sides are going to lose in between 0-20% of opposing side troops, the exact number depending on the outcome of the battle.

Nations provide bonuses to attack, defense, income and spying, and are ranked according to 3 parameters. Main one is the overall troop count of all villages in the nation, while the other 2 are the overall amount of gold, and number of villages(players) in the nation.

Although there are two ways to rank players, according to village size and gold amount, the nation ranking is by far the most important, as this is a team game. In order to be victorious in it, your team (nation) needs to be victorious and achieve supremacy, by the time season ends.

Overall, ogre wars is a good game, although quite simple in design, limited in options, it’s still able to provide a good amount of entertainment to players, whether they’re forum regulars or not, which has room for further improvement, and therefore potential to become even better than it is already at this moment.

Current rating – 8 out of 10

Comment: A lovely strategy game you play in GameOgre’s forum. It’s a really challenging game since you play against other GameOgre members so you will never know when they will attack you but they won’t know when you will attack either. There are four nations in total right now, Ironheads, Gold Beasts, Wompers and Steelskulls. A little con about this game is that every new player that starts to play the game mostly picks Gold Beasts or Ironheads since those are the top two nations and are kind of dominant. But this game is still more about the active players. So the nation with the best and most active players is probably the most dominant one. I wasn’t really playing this game when I was new in GO. But once I started to play it I couldn’t stop xD Pretty addictive game but a lot of fun too. So let the wars begin 🙂

Comment: OgreWars is a pretty nice game since it’s very simple. You can just allocate around 5-10 minutes every day to play this game. What is also interesting about the game is that it really requires the cooperation of the team members. One or two active players in one team, no matter how strong, cannot carry the team to victory if they are against a lot of other players. As such, teamwork is also essential.
The only downside that I see here is that it can be pretty routinary. There are times when the standings don’t really change that much, and declaring a winner is quite hard since there’s no definite duration for a single season of OgreWars.
Overall, however, OgreWars is still a fun game to play.

Comment: Ogre Wars is a GO game that you can play while you are already on the forum. Ogreman took a standard fantasy game and ogrized it xD. Every season one nation usually dominates due to playing everyday and working as a team with the rest of the nation. This year, the Gold Beasts have been the best. Overall, I rate Ogre Wars a 9!

Comment: In Ogre Wars, you have to choose one of the four nations. Each nation has its own set of bonuses in terms of offense, defense, income, and intel. Choose whichever nation fits your playing style.

The main objective of the game is for your nation to have the most number of troops, which is considered as the nation’s dominance. The number of troops of your nation is equal to the summation of all troops owned by each and every one in that nation.

The mechanics of the game is pretty simple. You have a total of 75 energy (which is similar to many Facebook games like Mafia Wars). Energy refills by 1 every 15 minutes. It is used to train more troops, getting more gold, or launching an attack. You need 4 energy to hire troops. The increase of troops per click is 1% of your troop count. On the other hand, you need 5 energy to acquire gold. The increase of gold per click is 10% of your troop count. Lastly, you can launch an attack to kill enemy troops and possibly loot gold, or launch a spy attack to get intel, which costs 3 energy.

Gold in this game is used to buy weapons and armors. Weapons increase your power when you’re doing the attack, while armors increase your power when you’re defending against an enemy attack. If you notice, the attack power of the more expensive items are better than the combined attack power of cheaper items of the same price. It’s kind of hard to explain but once you see the prices and the corresponding attack power, you’ll understand what I mean.

Another thing that you can do with your gold is to recruit spies. By using 3 energy, you can send your spies to an enemy territory to get intel like number of troops, amount of gold, etc. The more spies you have, the higher the success rate and the more info you can obtain. Hiring spies also help in preventing enemy spies from gathering info about your town. Spies are pretty cheap, but they take one gold every 15 minutes. Thus, if you have a lot of spies, they eat up a lot of gold every 15 minutes.

Lastly, here are some tips that I would like to share.
– The more troops you have, the higher your income will be when you use your energy to get gold, since as mentioned, it’s 10% of your troop count. However, higher troop count means you are more prone to attacks. As such, balance your troop growth by getting gold every once in a while to buy weapons and armors. If you have a very high number of troops but with no armor, the number will easily dwindle down when you are attacked by an enemy.
– Check the “largest villages” and “richest villages” tab to get an idea of who have a lot of troops and who have a lot of gold. This will give you some prospects on who to attack.
– Weapons are needed if you are attacking and armors are needed for defense. As such, if you want to play a defensive game but still contribute to your nation, you can generate troops, which adds to your nation’s dominance, and invest on getting armors to prevent your soldiers from dying.
– There is a forum section for ogre wars. In particular, there are sections per nation, which is a good way to communicate with your allies.
– You can keep a low profile and not talk too much so that other enemies may not even know that you’re contributing a lot to your nation.

Comment: Whoever said a text-based game has to be simple?

Ogre Wars appears very basic up front–players can raid each other, purchase items, recruit for their armies, hire spies, and train their ogres. However, the game isn’t about just the one player–it’s about working with the other members of your nation in order to gain dominance. There are also many different strategies implemented, ranging from pinning down smaller armies to staying strictly on the defensive to fend off attacks. In order for one team to reach the top, all of the players must cooperate and work off each others’ strengths and cover each others’ weaknesses. The number of players is growing steadily, too.

Also, the game isn’t like other online games that require hours of time. Ogre Wars’ turn system keeps people from over-exploiting resources and options; as a result, players can log in, use up their turns, and log out in a timespan as short as five minutes.

Currently there are three nations to choose from, but (I pose this to older players) whatever happened to the fourth?

Comment: This is a text-based game, however, I think I may even stick to this one, because it has SUCH a simple system! Unlike OGame, which has various researches, defenses, weapons, and buildings to build, this game just has troops to recruit, armour and weapons to buy, and training to perform for troops, simple as.

Plus, you can really play this game in your spare time, like just a few minutes a day. The only con is that it has a tiny community (about 20 people currently), though personally, I consider this a good thing.

  1. Very good free to play video game playable on Gameogre.com it used to be strategy video game which reminded me on Travian.Now it is dice video game based on rolling a dice.You have to roll a dice and say what you want gold or troops and then later when you get enough gold for War Machine you can use your second roll for attack.

    TheRedLight3 did not rate this post.
  2. Ogre Wars is a fun game on the GameOgre forums, a lot like a turn-based strategy game with some interaction among players. What’s really great about Ogre Wars is that it is an easy game to understand and play, not a game that’s too convoluted with a lot of rules set. This game is mostly about luck as dice rolls will always be random, but there is slightly a bit of strategy, like deciding on what the rolls will be used for. Overall, it’s a fun daily game, especially for its unique category as a forum game, but it is too simple, so I would give this game a 3.75/5.

    SnowyAE did not rate this post.
  3. I very much enjoy participating in this game. The use of the dice and other things are very fun and entertaining for a forum game. Normally forum games are not nearly as well done as this one. It’s a very easy to understand and easy to participate game for everyone. All you need to do is roll a dice everyday. It’s just another way to enjoy hanging out with and beating up your friends on the forums. The only issue I have with this game is my lack of luck. xD I give the game a 4/5 rating.
