"...the game is intense. Rarely have I seen a game that requires such an incredible amount of planning, yet is playable in a few minutes if you so wish."
- THE WARGAMER
Welcome to the World of Kaomaris!
WoK - The World of Kaomaris is a collection of strategy games based on an original game designed by Al Gassner. All current games use the Standard WoK game engine and are playable through your internet browser with no downloads needed.
All WoK games are Completely Free. All that is needed is an email address and to create an account.
WoK: Skirmish is the simplest WoK game currently available. Two players fight it out on a map with 20 provinces. With no diplomacy and not much space, skirmishes are short and brutal.
Skirmishes are an ideal way to get to know the game engine, before taking on the more complicated variants. They're also a great way for experienced players to pass the time!
WoK: Duel is a two player game, designed by player, Hannibal.
Played on a 60 province map, each player takes three spots, and automated 'robot' players fill in a further four places. There is no diplomacy; commanding three empires at once gives the ultimate strategic challenge!
A variant of duels in which three players take two spots each. Domination of the battlefield is not necessary as the first player to finish off three opposing spots (human or robot) wins.
"Standard WoK" for many established players, or even "WoK IV" for the real old timers, this is the closest to the original game. Up to 10 players battle it out for control of a 60 province map.
Every player starts with one province and then, through strategy and diplomacy, attempts to eliminate the competition until only one or two players survive.
The Advanced WoK game engine includes all the aspects of Standard WoK, but also requires players to run an ecconomy and allows them to cast spells to build themselves up or devastate the enemy. Unfortunately no games are currently available using the Advanced WoK engine.
