Official Game Rules

Game Objective

1000AD is a fun, turn-based, text-based strategy game. The object of the game is to build up your empire from very little land and wage war on your fellow players. There is a protection period for your early turns to allow you to prepare your empire to defend itself and function self-sufficiently, but as soon as that expires, you are engaged in a deadly war. Many things contribute to score: army, land and buildings being the main ones.

When each round ends, the player with the highest score wins. Then another round starts and everyone starts over from low resources again. You can view how much time is left, at the bottom of any page, once your logged into the game.

Just remember, the more you put into the game, the more you will get out of it. So be sure to make new friends or fight new enemies, as the case may be. Participate in discussions at the game Lounge or even the server-wide, public, New 1000 AD Forums. Please stop by and introduce yourself to everyone!

  1. Bots & Account Managers

    There is no valid reason to use any program in conjunction with how the game is presented to you through your browser. This includes so-called managers and macros. No program is allowed to have access to your browser while you are playing the game. This also includes so-called "Bots". Any tools or programs you use that give you an unfair advantage and is not cleared by Game Staff and made available to every other player is illegal and therefore cheating. Any program which allows you to appear online when you are not is also be considered cheating.

    Having programs or tools to enable mass mailing is also forbidden. Users reported for spamming, sending messages to everyone in the game, will be investigated. If guilty, account deletion and permanently banned from the game will be the result.

  7. Ingame Information

    Please do not reveal tactical game information about your enemies on the public forums, lounge or alliance info page. If you want to reveal such information to your allies or to the rest of your alliance, or to anyone in the game, use the private message system or alliance forums.

  9. Bug Reporting and Exploitation

    If you somehow come across a bug, flaw or any other sort of exploit in the game, please inform the Game Admin as soon as possible, and make a post in the Bug Report section of the forums if it is not too sensitive. If you are found abusing a bug knowingly, you will be banned.

  11. Game Staff Impersonation

    Anyone impersonating any of the Game Staff will meet a painful end to their gaming experience!

  12. / (Return to: Top) / (Return to: List of Game Rules) /
  13. Accusations

    If you suspect anyone of cheating, DO NOT post your accusation publicly, like in the public forums or the Lounges. Message your Game Admins or email them. Accusations posted in public will be deleted and ignored. The player who made the accusation may be banned from the game, the lounge or the Game forums.

  14. / (Return to: Top) / (Return to: List of Game Rules) /
  15. Abuse of Players and Staff

    Offensive and abusive personal attacks directed toward either players or the Game Staff are not tolerated. Constructive criticism of administrators is encouraged as most of our Game Admins are now former players who have volunteered to administer the games in order to keep 1000AD running.

  16. / (Return to: Top) / (Return to: List of Game Rules) /
  17. Reimbursement

    Technical and human error will likely occur at some point in your game if you choose to stay and play consistently. Naturally, such errors may set back your empire. Efforts will be made to ensure that such occurences are relatively innocuous and that players are not unduly penalized. However, beyond that, specific requests for any sort of reimbursement will be ignored.

Final Words

Violating any of the above rules can result in being blocked from the game or being removed from the game all together.

If you have any questions about the game after browsing through the documentation, feel free to post your question in the Game forums.
