If you want to annoy someone while playing online, type 999 and music will begin to play. It sounds just like the theme music, but with things that sounds like chipmunks singing.
To start, you must be worshipping the major Egyptian God Isis or Ra. Then, advance to the Mythic Age and worship Osiris. Ignore the fact that the mummies that you can make are useless. Then, select either the Temple or Town Center and choose to research the technology. The description is the Osiris issues another Pharaoh to govern your people. After that. Enable the "DIVINE INTERVENTION" code. Do this as many times as desired. Each time it is enabled, you can use each of your God Powers one more time. Then, use the Son of Osiris God Power on both of your Pharaohs to have two Sons of Osiris. About every three to five minutes, another Pharaoh will appear near your Town Center, which you will then use the God Power on. Within fifteen to twenty minutes, you should have about eight to ten of these powerhouses. By doing this, you can wipe out an enemy base that stretches over half of the map without losing one of them. When you have them attack something, the lightening that shoots from their rods will also reach through the initial target to up to four other enemy units or buildings.
If your Son of Osiris targets an enemy and there are animals nearby, his chain lightning attack might strike the animals. It kills the weaker animals in a single shot, which is quite funny to watch.
In any mission or random map game, enable the "PANDORAS BOX" code until you get the Flaming Weapons God power. Enable the "DIVINE INTERVENTION" code as many times as desired. Then, use all of your Flaming Weapons on any unit, all in rapid succession. It will bolster all of your units' attack. When the time runs out for the Flaming Weapons, the high attack value will remain and will not wear off. Note: This requires the latest patch for the game.
Use the following trick to build a gate that you can use, but not your allies (to prevent them from using the resources around you). First, build a Fortress, Migdol Stronghold, Hillfort, or any kind of Tower. Enclose your city with walls. Have the Fortress or Tower be a part of the walls. When you want a unit to get from one side of the wall to another, have them garrison inside the Fortress or Tower. Then, set the gather point to the opposite side. When you eject the units, they will be on the other side of the wall. Note: This does not work on units that will not garrison inside buildings.
When playing the King of the Hill map, be Poseidon. As soon as the game starts, cast Lure just beside the Plenty Vault in the middle of the map. The Lure Stone will capture the vault. While it will not win you the game (unless if the vault is on an island), it will get you extra resources in the time it takes your opponent to try to reclaim it.
Enter Mount Olympus and get a few Niddhogs. Raid an enemy city and continuously use Meteor Power on large warrior armies. Sometimes an enemy will be floating while kicking their legs. Get rid of them by building over them.
