5 Foundational Tricks You Should Always Be Doing

: You can host parties in your Town Hall. While at firstthey may seem to be really expensive, as you expand and build morevillages you won’t notice the difference between hosting them or not.There are two kinds of parties that you can host. You can host small parties, which are worth 500 culture points. Culture points must reach acertain level before you can found a new village. Hosting parties helps bring you up to that level.You can also host big parties once you bring your TownHall to level 10. These are worth 2000 culture Points. If youcalculate the culture points vs. the cost and vs. the time it takes to hostthe parties, you will notice that big parties take a little less time, but costabout 20,000 wood/clay/iron/crop more than small parties.

Either you make them fit into your strategy, or theywill make you fit into theirs. If you’re going to playTravian, make sureyou play to win.
: Every village should have a focus.Many players (both experienced and inexperienced) make the mistake of trying to do all the researches and building many kinds of troops in eachof their villages. They will have the same village that builds offensivetroops build defensive ones as well. This will give theresultof fullyupgraded troops available late in the game rather than early.Each village should have a focus that allows you to do the upgrades for 1-3 troop types, not 10. For example, you may have a scout village.There you will build 2000-5000 scouts that will be fully upgraded in both the armoury and the blacksmith.In another village you will build catapults and assault troops.
