This is the standard 27+2 population AOE2 fast castle boom build order to use on closed maps like arena. You would use this strategy when you want to boom your economy before making military. This is definitely the first build order that new players should learn. This is because it helps to improve at focusing purely on build orders and managing an economy. My advice to beginners is to play lots of Black forest and practice this build order.

The aim of this build order is to reach the castle age in under 16 minutes so that you can build 2 new town centres and begin producing villagers constantly from each town center, eventually adding a 4th. Ideally, you should be aiming to have at least 120 villagers in order to have a strong economy. Once your economy has grown well, you can begin making military buildings, getting the upgrades you need and start making an army. But don’t forget to keep making villagers! This Fast Castle build order can be completed with any civilization, however specific civs will have bonuses that enable them to fast castle much more quickly. This includes civilizations such as the Khmer, Italians and Tatars to name a few. The Cumans will be better off completing the Cuman Feudal Boom build order.
