[edit] Lyrics

{singing}
This is the quickstart overview
I'ma tell you all the things that you're supposed to do
The facts are many, but details are few
So come on and listen to my overvieeew!

{rapping}
Now Trogdor is a game that's cooperative
You can play it by yourself or with your stepmom's kids
And if you wanna find out what the object is
Just remember all the awesome stuff that Trogdor did!

Number one!
Burninate the countryside!
Flip all the tiles to the side that's fried!
Number two!
Burninate the peasants!
Clear the board of the presence
Of these persons, in order to defeat 'em
You can eat 'em or burn 'em!
That'll learn 'em!
Number three!
The thatched-roof cottages!
There's only three of these but the problem is
You gotta inundate these domiciles with burnination
Before you can incinerate them from creation

That sounds easy... for Trogdor anyways
So what's to stop his beefy arm from winnin' the game?
{singing}
You got the knights, the archers, and the Troghammer
Wanna steal all the peasants from your Trog-Meter

{rapping}
And undo all your hard-earned burnination
Fixing tiles and roofs of peasant habitation
And if they hit you when you're all outta energy,
Just watch what happens when Trogdor gets angry!

{speaking}
Oooh!
I'm talkin' rage quits... table flips...
Takes his toys and splits

{singing}
This is the quickstart overview
I'ma tell you all the things that you're supposed to do
The facts are many, the details are few
So come on and listen to my overvieeew!

{speaking}
Ohh, the overview!
It's like the view from above!
Where you can see everything in...
Uh... broad strokes.
