One player, two player, three player, or four players take turns in concurrent/competing/cooperative play. (the game is designed for both competitive and cooperative strategies)
One to four players receive funds for each city they occupy. With these funds they can build different troop types including humans or fantastic creatures. Each troop type moves better or worse in different terrains. Differing movement abilities and the way the different kinds of troops interact with each other, having different strengths and weaknesses depending on which type that are battling with, means strategy is emphasized over sheer numbers or experience of each unit (but the latter two are still advantageous).

Human Units: King (only one per player), Fighter, Knight>Silver Knight>Dragon Knight, Monk>Priest>Bishop, Sorcerer>Mage>Wizard.
Fairy Units: Goblin, Harpy, Elf, Giant, Gryphon
Dragon Units: Lizardman, Wyvern, Serpent, Dragon
Other Units: Golem, Skeleton
Non-playables: Cockatrice, Sword Fighter, Axe Fighter, Lance Fighter, Bow Fighter, Cerberus, Gargoyle, Barbarian, Zombie
