Gamble gold, summon wizards, wreak havoc, bless, attack, build cities, farms & embassies - and do it all in a beautiful retro environment that is unlike anything you've ever played. Take over the entire Grid or band together with other hungry conquerors, or just sit back and watch the action with a bag of popcorn!

Hey all, some exciting new commands have been added to The Grid, so here they are for your enjoyment!

The Grid is a text-only strategy multiplayer game you play by actually typing in commands and fantasizing you are logged in a BBS. It does feel quite a bit like a boardgame and generally has you capturing squares, building farms, hiring wizards, stealing from your neighbors, inciting revolutions, forming alliances and even attempting to bless everyone, while fighting to gather all the resources a powerful master of the grid would need.

Carve: You can mark your territories by carving letters into your squares to divide up your realm into a vast area of proud grid-states.

Credit cards: Divvy out credit cards to other players so that you can extract a card fee of 1% of their bank per turn. Meanwhile, the card holder probably doesn't have that large of a bank savings anyway and now has a nice chunk of your money to play with so it can be a mutually beneficial relationship.

Switch: This is a fun command that will allow you to switch positions with other squares along your borders. It's also a great way to become mobile, traveling across The Grid by shifting different squares around. You can also focus on making your lands more uniform by switching out squares with odd squares here and there that have somehow wandered into your kingdom.

Discover: New squares are waiting to be discovered at the bottom of The Grid. You could be the one to discover them and potentially the first to stake your claim on new found wealth and power!

Semi-colon: Players can now string together a chain of commands, simply by separating them with semi-colons!

Up/Down Arrow Keys: Use the arrow keys on your keyboard to cycle through your last used commands. This will bring back the days of working on a linux terminal and will save you so much typing!
