Is anyone around here playing Ikariam? I've seen a banner and checked out the game from the outside a bit. It looks very interesting, but, at some point, bit says something in the Terms and Conditions section about some sort of payment... That's what I wanted to ask: is it a free game and you can buy extra moves and resources, or do you have to pay a fee to signup or some kind of subscription?

I am playing it... the game is great. Not very easy to learn but when you start to understand it it's a piece of cake. Entertaining and completly free. I recommend it to anyone who enjoys historic games, and having an historic empire...

Unfortunately, once you get stronger you find out that many options are not yet implemented, like occupying other cities or upgrading your ships and units... That's why I'm not playing Ikariam anymore, even if I had created a pretty strong alliance (about the 80th on my server).

I play ikariam and it really is quite entertaining. I log on and spend max of 30 min on it to quickly organize evrything and leave it at that. Slowly the town grows and there is more for me to do.

That's true, there is more to do as the town grows. Just today I founded my 4th town. Now I have access to all the resources without having to buy it from anyone

I used to play on the Romanian servers, but the Romanian version was incomplete, with many options not yet activated, so I quit the game a while ago. I hope your version is complete, because it seemed to be an interesting game.

Hmm, anyone here from Theta? I'm looking for an alliance to help deal with some pests who kept taking resources from my town... Damn :P Needa revenge.

Yes I do! It's absolutely free of charge, but if you want to do better in-game (such as more resources and larger warehouses, or larger transport capacity), you can buy ambrosia for a certain price. However, you can still do well without paying a cent!

How far into the game are you? Did you get to fight other cities? I really liked the game and I'm interested in coming back, but only if town occupation is now implemented...
