Fun game and no problems loading any amount of maps on 10.6.5. Interesting twist on Risk and I enjoy the online play too.

Don't waste your money. I tried the previous version for a while and, though it had a disturbing tendency to crash while loading every fourth map or so (sending the syslog process into hyperactivity, jacking up the heat/fan and slowing my entire computer down...), I thought I'd plump for 6.0 on the theory that they probably fixed what ailed it and I was getting tired of going into Parallels to play Risk. Bad choice. Aside from the fact that I still haven't received my license code after two days, the same problems remain: if you play different maps, inevitably, one of the maps won't load and syslog will go nuts. You can kill the process but sometimes that doesn't do it, so you have to kill it again. Or several times. Eventually, everything returns to normal, but it starts again the next time you boot up. Oh, and this problem persists on both my laptop and my family iMac, so I'm pretty sure it's not just me, but it's the code. Anyway, I know I'm the sucker for trusting the developer, but like I said, I've always been a Risk fan. In this case, the risk cost 25 bucks and was definitely not worth it. Take my advice and stay away. I'm the sucker

I think there's too much nitpicking on how one should play this game and the "rules" about how to interpret the rules. In my mind, the game rules ARE the rules; the rest is up to you - otherwise, the game should take responsibility for preventing someone to attack the way they want, etc. I was looking for a game where I could just pop by and have a few shootouts, then leave. But no, that's NOT okay with the people playing Lux… You can't just enter and play by your own chaos tactics however you want. Stepping on someones toe will mean about 10-30 comment lines teaching you what you did wrong - at best - and more often, lead to even more befooling. You are adviced to ask: "Is it OK with you, if I attack you in South America?"… (which of course is a huge disappointing element for someone who just want a game or two during lunch break or likewise). My point of view: if I come in and play the game with my own uncanny/barbarian ways, I'd rather learn the consequences by myself, and I certainly didn't pay $24.95 just to express that I'm sorry if I so happened to "ruin" someone elses game. Who cares? I hope I'll have a reason to retract these comments, but this is my honest conclusion: if you're not a hardcore player of Risk-like games - this is NOT for you, period. And If you (like me) don't have the time or interest learning each little code of conduct, then again, this isn't for you. The way I wish to play this game is to simly act with passion and a bit of fun, making rough estimations, and if (at all) I feel a need to become more skilled, I'd prefer to "teach" myself - learning form my own "mistakes". Not by being yelled at, in a chat communication window. The developer needs to address this in order to attract a larger audience. Perhaps there should be a public server open for free interpretation. The game itself is pretty fun - enough for me to buy it after I tried the demo, at which time I was unaware of the prohibiting nature of its online games.

WARNING LUX BANS PLAYERS The Lux Nerds complain EVERY time someone attacks them "Im telling Dustin to ban you". In other words, if you are an agressive player and like to pop-income you will get banned because you "ruined their game". Lux will take your money and then ban you for no other reason then the way you play. BEWARE.

Lux is way better than iConquer both in appearance, versatility and the enormous number of game variations. Best fun is creating your own games although the drawing tools look like stuff I was using back in the early 80's. The help could be better written as well, but the forums are very active to make up for that.
