Lux is a game of strategy and domination inspired by the board game Risk. Control your armies to conquer and hold strategic countries on the map. The object of the game is to take over the entire world. In addition to the classic Risk map, Lux has a variety of different maps available and features a map editor to create new maps. The map files are in a documented XML format.
Lux is a turn-based strategy computer game that uses the rule system of the board game Risk but expands it to function on any map made up of a graph of countries and the connections between them. Regardless of the map, the object of the game remains: eliminate all other players so only one remains. Lux includes some other options not included in Risk, such as the ability to use a starting scenario, or set continent values to increase as the game goes on.
