Hypnotize someone from the other tribe, (Dakini, Matak, or Chumara) and make him become a Warrior, Preacher, Firewarrior, or Spy. He will then become a part of your tribe.
In multi-player mode, use Ghost Army on your Shaman. Your opponent will not be able tell which Shaman is the real one at first sight. One way to tell is that only your real Shaman uses spells.
Killing enemy Shamans:
If you have the Swamp spell, cast it on the enemy Shaman's regeneration site after killing her. When the enemy Shaman returns, she will be instantly killed by the swamp.
Play a multi-player game and get the Ghost Army spell. You can easily fool someone by creating a copy of yourself (Shaman), and then hiding the real one on an innocent looking hut. Many people do not realize the real Shaman can do this to hide, so it is a great hiding place. You will be surprised at how the enemy looks, but finds no real Shaman They will assume the ghost is the true Shaman (and spells on it).
Cast a swarm spell on a boat or a balloon that is over water to make the occupants jump out and drown.
It is possible to create a volcano where the lava flows out so slowly that it takes approximately three to five minutes to finish. First, enable the codes to get all spells and buildings. Make a balloon hut and command a follower to build a balloon. Command the follower to train to a firewarrior and get back in the balloon with the Shaman. Go to an enemy site that you want to destroy and use two different non-lethal spells and quickly use the volcano spell. This should create a slow volcano, and your followers can walk on it. Note: The game may glitch when this trick is used.
Incarcerated level with no time limit:
When playing the Incarcerated level where the Shaman is trapped with a time limit, press [F11] for the demo play and click to stop the game play. Press [Esc] and choose "Restart Level". The game will get confused and use the demo strategy sequences as the Incarcarated beginning. You can now finish the level with no time limit. Note: This will not actually finish the level. If you save, you will not be able to pass the level. The game will save it as a demo
