game hall of fame and museum


While the rest of this website is just for fun, this page looks at how to play Forge of Empires.

CathyMCM used to call herself the Queen of Copy and Paste. She kept saved text handy so she had prepared answers for the most common player questions.

Much of this material is organized for easy copy and paste into the game. Currently trying to build up a good, well organized collection of the answers to the most common questions and the best advice.


CathyMCM was a player in the game Forge of Empires. For several years she ran a message thread entitled @@ Chatter with Cathy & Friends @@ on multiple game worlds.

CathyMCM had a big heart and was always helping new players.

preserving her memory

This is a last minute effort to try to preserve CathyMCM's cities. The more players who participate, the more likely we will succeed.

Please contact Inno Games and ask them to preserve CathyMCM's cities until a member of her family can take over her account. Her sister had the passsword to go into the game and inform us of Cathy's unfortunate death and we hope that eventually one of her children might take over the account in her mother's memory.

You can contact Inno Support and they will probably recite the one year rule. Ask them to please pass the request on to higher authority in the game.

Even better, contact the higher authority directly. That would be Michael Zillmer, COO and Co-founder, or Hendrik Klindworth, Co-founder and Chief Executive Officer, or Eike Klindworth Co-founder, Creative Director and Board Member.

Send an actual physical letter (and explain how CathyMCM effected you and why it is important to preserve her memory) to: Friesenstraße 13, 20097 Hamburg, Germany, or call +49 40 7889335-0.

If you have the ability to send a fax, send it to +49 40 7889335-200 and address it to one of the three top execuives.

You can also use the contact form at: or email, but you don't know who might see those items.

If you are a money player, please mention that, especially if you are a big money player. Money players have more influence on Inno for obvious reasons.
