    I'm just got this game (one of the only slightly newer games i can play on my ibook) and I was just looking for some strategy. There seems to be a lot of different guys you can make, fairly complex. Plus they all seem to look the same which doesn't help. anyway I was wondering if anyone had some tips on what to make for offense and what to make for defense.

    1. study the instruction manual
    2. try a google search for swgb strategies
    3. here's a good site but you have to register.
    4. download and watch recorded games from the pros
    5. play online(gameranger), and ask questions

    I wish I could be more help but I play Age of Empires II. I used to play SWGB, but i find AOE II more to my liking, plus they have more players on Gameranger playing AEO than SWGB.

    I played age of empires briefly,

    that game was a little to complex for me. I do better with the starcraft/warcraft games, where there is a little less selection as far as troups and troup combinations go.

    these games can get crazy when you need to know what troup does better against what other troup to win.

    I'd take a look at as well.

    If AoE/AoM was complex, SWGB is going to overwhelming. Took me a while to learn. Haven't played it in a while though.
