Currently the game is only available in german! But we are working on the translation.

Xyhora is a computer moderated fantasy strategy game where up to 26 players take over the role of a ruler of a realm.

It is played on a map that consists of 100*80 areas that is rebuild for every game. And it is unknown at the beginning.

It has been around since 1994 and is therefore rather stable.

Players receive a turn report every 2 weeks either via snail or e-mail. It consists of several pages detailing his own realm and the events that took place in the last month. And also a graphical map of the world that is visible to him. Lastly a small statistics page is included to give the player an idea of how good he is compared to the rest of the world.

This turn report comes (for e-mail) in either html- or tif-format. Players should have a printer because of the complexity of the game. You can also receive data that can be used in our new player viewer which is available for download at our website.

Introductory offer: Play Xyhora for free for 5 turns! English will be available soon!
