New to Epicinium?
To learn how to play the game, you can play the in-game tutorial or watch the introduction video. We also have a wiki with an in-depth exposition of all the mechanics and units in the game.
Epicinium is a multiplayer strategy game with simultaneous turns. Each turn consists of a planning phase, where all players decide which orders they want to give their units that turn, followed by an action phase, where players watch as the orders play out.
Units will automatically attack enemy units they encounter; they will also fire back when attacked and attack any unit that moves away from them. Some units have abilities that allow them to bombard tiles, randomly dealing damage to whoever and whatever is present at that time. Anticipating your opponent's orders is key.
Between rounds, the season changes which might bring about new weather effects such as snow, drought or firestorm. At night, buildings can gain power and generate income. Cities only gain power if surrounded by enough grass, forest, water and crops, whereas barracks and industry grow larger when additional cities are placed nearby.
To defeat your opponent, capture or destroy all of their City tiles.

Extract the archive somewhere on your system where you have full writing permissions (your Documents folder, for example). To start playing, double-click the "epicinium" executable in the folder where you extracted the archive.
On Mac, you may need to right-click the executable and then click "Open", as otherwise you get an "unidentified developer" warning that you are unable to ignore.
If that does not work for you, please consider installing Epicinium via the itch desktop app. We are also happy to assist you at firstname.lastname@example.org or in our Discord server.
