Wololo Wednesday: February Contest and January Winners

Greetings Wololo Warriors!

It’s time once again to step up and show your wololo spirit in our monthly contest.

But first, the winners from last month. There were so many great options to choose from, and some rather ambitions plans for the new year! Here our our favorites:

What will the villagers do when the new Age of Empires come?

P.S. no one was hurt.

Happy Wololo!


After a long year of hard work of constructing buildings, farming, chopping wood, mining gold and defending themselves against cruel invaders, the villagers need to re-energize for the coming year. So their king sent them to an exclusive luxury resort on an idyllic tropical island.

The all-inclusive resort offers a lot of fun activities, such as beach volleyball, canoeing, sailing, romantic horseback rides on the beach (we need more villagers ;) ), yoga, swimming, thrilling car rides through the jungle and much more. Or the villagers can just relax and sunbathe on the beach.

This five star retreat will give the villagers the energy boost they need for the coming year! B)


Peace is never lasting in aoe world, so as the new year just began, the blue king already wants to plunder the riches of the green realm far to the east! Because he doesn’t have a big standing army, the villagers first must learn fight and serve in an army. For this reason a training camp is established.
In the bottom the commander lets the troops patrol. Meanwhile the trainer at the barracks explains the villagers the basics of melee combat, while the archers practise shooting nearby, which may not have been the best idea.

Some time has passed and the blue army marched into war and is now attacking the main fortress of the green realm. Unfortunately most of the villagers still don’t know how to fight and therefore have to push rams or set up and operate the trebuchets, as well as bring new stones that can be used as ammo for them.


Have any of you wonderd how romans celebrated January 1?

For the Romans, the month of January carried a special significance. Its name was derived from the two-faced deity Janus, the god of change and beginnings.

Romans would celebrate January 1 by giving offerings to Janus in the hope of gaining good fortune for the new year. This day was seen as setting the stage for the next twelve months, and it was common for friends and neighbors to make a positive start to the year by exchanging well wishes and gifts of figs and honey with one another. According to the poet Ovid, most Romans also chose to work for at least part of New Year’s Day, as idleness was seen as a bad omen for the rest of the year.


A villager’s dream…

Congratulations to the winners, and thanks to everyone who participated!

We’ve been doing a bunch of holiday themed Wololo Wednesdays lately, and we’re not planning on stopping now:P  So this month we’d like you to show us what your villagers and soldiers are up to on Valentines day. Are they taking a break from all the bloodshed to feel the romance, or is it all battles all the time? It’s up to all of you to show us in your entries! This can come in the form of an illustration by you, a screen shot from the game, whatever you feel like doing! Just have fun with it!
