Author: Andy Robertson.
Whether walking to your workplace or running a marathon, capture the places you move through to build a formidable empire. Explore further to collect resources and earn great fortunes. Lead your people from the dawn of time to the Space Age.
You can then take on other nearby players to earn additional chests if you have enough resources. Or battle neighbours and friends to capture nearby castles by running in their hex to deploy warriors (multiple times if you have the leg power).
You can also find time-limited items in your area to go and find on a run and earn extra points to build your defences and kingdom.

You can buy gems to make it easier to hold your territory and develop defences faster. This means you are likely to need to spend money to play competitively, but you can still enjoy the app for free if played casually with friends who don't spend money.
You can buy packs for different eras (Bronze, Iron, Classical, Medieval) that adjust visuals and gameplay.
