Age of Wonders is a turn-based game of strategy and conquest that successfully incorporates adventure, exploration and role playing elements. These elements, together with a rich story line and heavy emphasis on global strategy without repetitive micro-management, make each scenario and game unique and fun to play.

Choose one of two main characters to play the single player campaign, or create your own mercenary hero. Customize your heroes as they grow in experience and power. Make strategic decisions that affect the outcome of each mission--use stealth, deception, magic, brute force, and diplomacy to conquer your enemies. Make decisions that affect which races you align yourself with and which path you take throughout the campaign. With a great amount of player involvement and control, two players will very rarely have the same campaign experience.
