“Many years ago, the swamp ‘Suora’ was very lively and populated with many types of animals and plants.” The guide made a little pause and looked at the group of Brick-Tourists he was leading through nature. “Alas, today, this place is home to but a few plants and trees, while all fauna has completely abandoned it. After a drought had changed the land permanently, the people started hunting anything that lived here and eventually, either wiped out entire species or drove them out of this land. Not even fish now live in the clear ponds surrounding the swamp.”
The guide cleared his throat and paused again. After some hesitation, he continued: “There is a myth saying that the swamp is now home to a special type of bees, whose stings will completely cloud peoples’ minds. The infected are said to attack everyone around them … Well, if you ask me, this is just a fairy tale. After all, bees are animals, too, and all animals that once lived here were killed or driven out. Anyway, we should head on to our next attraction, which is only about 20,000 Bricks west of here.” Suddenly, one of the tourists screamed “Ouch!” and touched their arm. “I think something stung me just now.”

Have you ever heard about the Hanging Gardens of Babylon? No? Well, then you will now get an impression of what they might have looked like: with Snaylor’s newest masterpiece Semiramis+. Legend has it that Semiramis was once a mighty queen of the ancient world, who reigned in old Babylon. Back then, the economy flourished, as Babylon was one of the world’s commercial and cultural centres. Up until today, this city – which is said to have once stood at the shores of river Euphrates – is shrouded in legend.
With this truly wonderful map, Snaylor makes ancient history come true. As a matter of fact, nobody really knows whether nature-loving Semiramis and her gardens really ever existed. Contemporary sources might state that there once was a magnificent palace, which was also a great garden, but there are no findings that prove its existence today. True or not, one thing’s for sure: Semiramis’ glory lives on far beyond her death, as up until today, the Hanging Gardens of Babylon are one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World.

War of the Halves
March 3, 2015
Eons ago, when the old Brickgods Brodin and Bhor still reigned over this world, a very powerful king decided to build himself an enormous castle. But as it was as large as a city, soon, its inhabitants started to fight amongst each other, as all brick people do when lots of them live together in limited space. They were fighting day in, day out, until finally, one fraction settled down in the Northern half, and the other in the Southern half of the castle.
A brittle peace followed… until some troublemakers decided it was time to once again dig up the old arguments. Brodin and Bhor had about enough. The earth suddenly opened up and ripped the mighty castle in two halves. Many of its inhabitants died when this happened, and afterwards, nobody dared to anger the gods again. One after the next, they left this cursed place.
For centuries now, the ruin has been deserted. Its past inhabitants are long forgotten, as are Brodin and Bhor. Seems like just the right time to once again dig up the old arguments…

The Cursed Graveyard
February 24, 2015
The great cemetery in the center of this town will give you an eerie feeling. Without a doubt, it is the little town’s landmark, both for the inhabitants as well as tourists, who like to take a walk through this beautiful and peaceful place during the daytime, and go to the town’s clubs, bars and casinos at night.
A few weeks ago, a successful constructor tried to get the license to remove the cemetery in order to build a giant shopping center in its stead. But he didn’t think of the graveyard’s inhabitants … The night before the council was supposed to make a decision, hundreds of Brick-Ghosts rose from their graves to curse the greedy constructor and all his helpers, who haven’t been seen since.
Now, it is time for the restless ghosts to go back to their graves so that peace can return to the little town. Will you be able to handle the situation?

Come and play in this idyllic mining village
February 13, 2015
A few generations ago a discovery like no other was made in the mining community. Nodes of pure gold and diamond were discovered intertwining with each other under a scenic village known only as Nature Dale.
The mining corporation who made the discovery kept it quiet, slowly paying off the villagers to leave, and moving in their own miners, sworn to secrecy. There they lived peacefully, visiting the church, getting water from the well, riding the train around the lake to go to the mine, and spending weekends at the waterfall. This was the 1st generation of miners. Now, after 3 generations, the secret is finally out, and nearly so are all the precious minerals!
You must fight for the last of this resource, turning the once peaceful paradise into a battlefield!
Win 3 matches in a mode of your choice on Nature Dale by DerJohnny and earn yourself 1,000 Force-Points!
