You can create games protected by password to play with your friends or a defined group of players.
When you create a private game, you get to choose its rules. Whether it is PvP or Cooperative, if players start with one plot or a piece of land, if turns run every 12, 24 or 48 hours and how many families there are in the village.
It costs 2 gold coins to create a private game.
6 days (real time) after creation, the game will either be force-started or deleted. If it has filled up more than half, it is started. If it has not filled up with at least half the required players, it is deleted. The gold to create it is refunded, minus 2 silver coins to discourage spamming game creation.
