About 1483 Online

1483 Online is a multi player turn based strategy game played over the Internet. Each game supports up to 28 players, each assuming control of one kingdom or nation in Europe, North Africa or the Middle East as they existed in the year 1483 AD. You guide your nation by making treaties with other players and by using your military to defend your nation and to conquer other players. Beware the backstab, for as sure as I type this, I can warn you that not all players will honor their treaties, so chose you allies well.

1483 Online is a turn based game Simultaneous Massively Multi-Player Online Turn Based Strategy Game (SMMOTBSG). That means each game supports from 28-95 players (depending on game format) and is given an update schedule. Schedules vary, such as standard games have varying updates from 1 turn per week to several turns per week on set days, fast games are 1 turn every night, and blitz games are multiple turns per hour all played out in a single day. The simultaneous aspect comes from that fact that all players have until the scheduled turn submission deadline to play and submit their turns to the game server at which time the computer takes them all, processes everyone's turn at the same time, then send out notifications that the turn is complete. At that time everyone may acces the turn results and has until the next scheduled update deadline to get their next turn in. The period in between turn updates can be used to communicate with other players to do your in game diplomacy to help you chose your actions for the turn. So 1483 is a massively multi-player game, but it is neither "real time" or "tick based". Everyone gets the same amount of time and the same schedule for playing and submitting their turns. Sorry, the ability to click your mouse quickly won't win you games here. You will have to use good strategy and diplomacy with the other players for your empire to survive and thrive.
