Civilization Building Games

In Civilization Building Strategy Games, you step into a leadership role and oversee the development of an empire. You can wage war on neighboring civilizations to expand your territory. Victory is often accompanied by riches, which you may use to purchase more powerful weapons and rebuild your armies. In addition to military concerns, you may need to ensure your people are well fed and have good jobs to ward off angry protests. You might also play an important role in the development of your cities and towns, adding homes, shopping markets, libraries and other important establishments. Increased taxation can add to your government’s coffers, but it might also instigate a revolt by your citizens.

Graenaland $49.95

In 982, a Viking jarl called Erik the Red sailed from the western coast of Iceland and discovered a new land. He named it Graenaland, a green land. Four years later the first colonists arrived to Greanaland and founded settlements that lasted more than four centuries.

Take the role of one of the jarls leading their clans to the new home. You have to settle the coast and to agree with your neighbors on how to distribute the spare resources the land is giving away. As Eric wants no fights amongst Vikings, any conflicts are solving by voting. You could improve your position in order to gain more votes; however, you can also try to be righteous and to keep good relations with all your neighbors. Cooperating with them, you can fertilize and improve the land easier than when struggling for influence; just keep your position strong enough for the case something goes wrong.
