Hi
I bought Lux Delux on the app store yesterday. Now I see there is a Lux Alliance on PC. This is not available on the app store. I'm just curious. Which one is better?

They are quite different. Question of better depends on which you prefer. There's free demos for them both, so feel free to try em out and decide for yourself.

It should work on Mac. That's the OS I use. What happens when you try?

Think of it this way: Lux Delux is like Risk with tons of maps available to download and plenty of room for basic rules modifications (e.g. turning Cards on or off, or changing the number of units you get for cards). By contrast, Lux Alliance is more like a fairly straight-forward hybrid of Axis & Allies and Diplomacy - the thinking is like A&A, but the moves are pre-ordered and all happen at once like in Diplomacy, thus providing a degree of uncertainty as to what your enemy is going to do. So, it's really about what kind of strategy game you're looking for.

Hope that helps. :wink:
