Lux Delux is a game of strategy and domination inspired by the board game Risk for the iPhone. Control your armies to conquer and hold strategic countries on the map. The object of the game is simple: Take over the entire world! Lux comes with over 400 different maps. Play on historical, geometric, geographic, and fantasy settings. New maps get added all the time. Play versus 11 different computer AI personalities. They start at easy and go all the way to hard (with a capital HARD). Lux provides a strong matchup even for experienced Risk game players.
The goal of the game is to take over the entire map. On each turn you place armies, can make unlimited attacks, and then fortify your armies around 1 move each. You get a card at the end of your turn as long as you take over at least one enemy country. When you eliminate another player from the game, you get all the cards they were holding. You can cash-in a set of cards (3 of a kind, or 1 of each kind) at the start of your turn for extra armies. Cards become more powerful the longer you hold on to them. You have to cash cards when you have 5 or more.
If you hold an entire bonus region at the start of your turn, you get extra armies from it. Use the Bonuses button to look at the regions for the map. Continent bonus values can increase as the game progresses. You also get more armies at the start of your turn if you own lots of countries, whether they form a bonus region or not. You get (# of countries owned / 3) armies per turn, with a minimum of 3.
