Age of Wonders 4: How to Win the First Turn

Winning the game in the First Turn


Video Evidence


When you surrender to a player as vassal, your game will be register as victory if your liege wins the game.

By setting up the map to be small and only have 2 players, you can instant win by meeting the AI, waging war with the AI, and immediately negotiating peace at the price of becoming a vassal. This will give both you and the AI an instant win.

Try to follow the road for minimum movement cost per tile.

Map Setup

Realm Traits:

  • Coast
  • Desert Realm
  • Small Underground
  • No Free City

Coast will make the AI be more likely to spawn extremely close to you depending on how map generator positioned the body of water. Desert Realm is used to synergize with desert adaption trait and Small Underground is used to discourage AI from spawning underground randomly. No Free City is not required but having no free city saves you the time from interacting with them.

Racial Setup

The spell tome and 1st racial trait does not matter.


Needs a few tries to be placed perfectly next to the AI for fast proc to finish the game in the first turn.
Can be consistently done in 3 turns for fast 500 exp gains, taking about 1 minute per run.
