    Blocklords is an Age of Empires/Settlers type of strategy NFT game that has been released in the beta version. You can now register and play a little for free to get a feel for the game until you get to the requirement for a lumbermill.

    After installing the game, you first get to choose where you want to build your kingdom.

    Once selected, you can start to build your farm. This seems to be the main focus at the start of the game and reminds me alot of The Settlers but with more realistic graphics.

    Many of the tasks and controls are intuitive. Clicking on the Villagers team and getting them to select berries was easy to figure out. They have a health score before they get tired. So I then sent them to rest in the house to recharge.

    What was not so intuitive was to click on the shield and claim the Might that increases your Upgrade Status so that you can unlock your level and progress in the game. I asked quickly in discord and could then proceed. The FAQ was also a little sparse on helpful information to get started in the game.

    As you progress in the game, you get small challenges and quests popping up for you to make a decision on. Do you turn a blind eye to things or take a hard line. Your decision can have different outcomes.

    I quickly established two new teams. One of villagers to help gather stone to complete a new mission. The second team was of builders who built me a new house as you can see above to expand my kingdom. Soon my Might or Upgrade Status was increasing and I could also unlock more buildings including my next task.. a lumbermill. With the lumbermill, I can then build many more things theoretically.

    The game has some great graphics and the many levels encourage you to want to progress further. There seems many farming opportunities to unlock but the fighting part is something I would like to check how it is working. The battle graphics show sieges of castles and it reminds me of my Amiga days with Defender of the Crown - less the catchy music.

    To play further, I now need to buy myself a hero that can cost anything from $4 upwards. You can apparently buy on Polygon or ImmutableX, although I opt for ImmutableX usually, but you need to first transfer your ETH to the layer 2 and the gas fees can be more than the costs of the NFT!

    As I was on a shopping spree with Gods Unchained last week, I need to add more ETH to my wallet, so will buy a Hero NFT and continue playing the game and give you a further update next time.

    Thanks for reading.
