Travian is one of the oldest browser based strategy games around. At the beginning of the game, you get to choose from three tribes to form alliances, go to war with each other, and begin the race to claim victory. The three tribes consist of the Romans, the Gauls, and the Teutons. Before choosing a tribe to play with, you should take time to consider your options because each tribe has different strengths and weaknesses. All three tribes also have ten unique military units to control during battle.
Travian is based in the Roman age, and at the start of the game you are given an undeveloped town and have to build it into a global empire before a specific period. Depending on the server every 100 to 300 days the server enters in to end of the game mode in which an NPC controls the tribe Natars and it continually sends out its military units to stop you from growing your empire. If you successfully hold off Natar’s military units and can fully construct what is called a “wonder” you beat the game and the server starts over.
