580 BC- The Median king, Astyages, is having strange dreams. His advisors say the vine wrapping around his land is related to his daughter marrying a Persian prince. Not just of his grandson succeeding him, but ruling in his place. And Persia is ripe for independence from their northern overlords.

So he tries to skew history. A general, Harpagus, is ordered to leave the newborn on a hillside to die. Instead, Harpagus gives Cyrus to a herdsman, who raises the child. Astyages, ten years later, finds young Cyrus and brings him back to the palace, in the hopes all will forget the incident. Harpagus, however, has his son roasted and served to him at a banquet. Cyrus soon grows into a cunning, strong man and convinces Harpagus and the tribes of the Persians to revolt against the Medes and its increasingly insane king.

In the following years, the known world will be torn into turmoil. The Babylonian Empire is crumbling under Nabonidus's erratic rule from Arabia, while the Egyptians and Lydians are consolidating their small kingdoms and forging alliances for what lies ahead. The Great King marches at the head of his army. Who can resist him?]]> heart-of-fire 2015-08-29T14:32:49-04:00 Soccer War HD

Honduras is ill-prepared to stop the coming invasion, but is determined to go to take part on the ;largest most prestigious global soccer event! The Soccer (Fútbol) War has begun!]]> Mark Bauer 2015-08-10T18:35:06-04:00 War for New York

November 16th, 1776
General Nathanael Greene
New York City is all but lost. The British and Hessian soldiers have almost taken Harlem Heights and with it my fort. Cornwallis will soon be on his way to you in Fort Lee. I fear you must retreat as we have been forced to. Gather what men you can from Fort Ticonderoga to Fort Niagara. To win the war for our new nation, we must Win the War for New York!
General George Washington

323 BC- Alexander the Great dies in Babylon, most likely of West Nile Virus. He leaves behind a massive empire and no adult heir. The army arranges his feeble half-brother Philip as co-ruler with Perdiccas as regent.

321 BC- Fractures begin to grow. Ptolemy hires Greek mercenaries and turns his satrapy into an empire. Perdiccas, unpopular, is assassinated by Seleucus. Amid the turmoil, Roxanne and Alexander's newborn son are moved to Macedonia for safekeeping.

316 BC- Cassander, General Antipater's son, invades Pella to secure his grip on Macedonia. Alexander's mother Olympias is stoned for arranging Philip's murder. Now the map has changed to five kingdoms: Seleucus in Babylon, Ptolemy in Egypt, Lysimachus in Thrace, Antigonus in Asia Minor, and Cassander in Macedonia.

310 BC- Alexander IV, only twelve, and Roxanne are killed by poisoned wine in the castle of Amphipolis. Cassander is obviously responsible. But the other generals refuse to leave the facade. No one proclaims himself king of the whole empire. If he does, he may find all the others allied against him...

War Zone Redux

35 years have passed since the first global invasion of the U.S. While the Americans succesfully repelled the first wave of invaders, the brutality of the conclift left the country in ruin. Scarce resources and a weakened central government caused the mighty nation to fracture. As anarchy and chaos spread across the land, a courageous leader, Habrahim Blinkin, works tirelessly to heal the nations wounds and once again restore the Union. But now a second wave of invaders has assembled and is keen to finish the job. Can the republic survive? Will the Union ever be restored?]]> Mark Bauer 2015-05-27T22:18:53-04:00 Anarchy of King Stephen HD

In 1120 the White Ship was crossing the channel when it mysteriously sank. One of the souls who perished was William Adelin, the sole heir to the thrown of England. Upon his deathbed, King Henry desperately tries to install his daughter, Empress Matilda, to the throne. But Matilda and her new husband, Geoffrey of Anjou, are off in Normandy attempting to strengthen their holdings in northern France.

Stephen of Blois, nephew to the dying King and a keen tactician, moves quickly to secure the throne for himself. Buying off barons and forming powerful alliances with the enemies of the King Henry. Empress Matilda now must work quickly to form an army and invade England. Meanwhile, the Welsh see this as the perfect opportunity to rebel and secure a homeland of their own!

Oponn is a new, powerful bot and the first built entirely on Monte Carlo Tree Search algorithms. As a result the longer you leave Oponn to think the stronger it'll play! As an added bonus Oponn has spent many years observing the standard Lux bots and will exploit their over-predictable behaviour.

Oponn's thinking time, number of cores it uses and other settings are tunable via the "Oponn.txt" settings file. Oponn's source code is freely available from the link below.

Caveats (there's always some!): Oponn does not yet support Biohazard mode or time limits per go. As with many bots, Oponn will perform better on smaller maps and will take less thinking time per move. It remains playable on Maze 2 with over 300 countries.]]> Matthew Daggitt 2015-04-20T09:43:29-04:00 Hundred Years War HD

It is the year of our Lord 1429, and the French countryside has been in a state of war for many decades. English forces have captured Paris and landed a sizable army in Bordeaux and Normandy. The French situation is desperate, the French King no longer holds the power he once did, the Valois Dynasty is crumbling.

Just when all hope appears to be lost, a young peasant girl named Joan arrives in the French camp outside Orleans and inspires a miraculous victory for the demoralized French army. Can she really be the savior of France?]]> Mark Bauer 2015-04-15T06:51:49-04:00 Castle Lux - Three Kings

This starts an immediate conflict with Product Development in building 43, who take up arms against their coder brethren. The Finance Department in building 42 acts swiftly to pull resources and begins hoarding all supplies. Since this is all against company policy, the HR Department in building 41 is forced to re-distribute employee handbooks, and ensure all policies are followed. Who will return googleplex back to peace?]]> Mark Bauer 2014-12-03T19:03:48-05:00 Silicon Valley HD

The longest, largest and most complex naval battle in history has begun!

It is the mid 17th Century, China is a huge untapped market. In 1729 opium laced tobacco was introduced and soon the demand skyrocketed in China as the populace became addicted to the drug. The Qing Dynasty is relatively weak and powerless but tries desperately to stop the flood of opium, outlawing the trading of opium and demanding that British merchants turn over there stores. The great powers yearning to fully open China up to unrestricted trade see this as the perfect opportunity to accomplish their goals. Expeditionary forces are sent to the far east to "protect" their trading rights and goods. Can China succesfully hold off the flood of foreign encroachment?]]> Mark Bauer 2013-11-01T15:17:19-04:00 Battle For DC

The year is 1898. The once mighty Spanish empire is in decline. The crown is bankrupt and revolts have broken out in three of their most important colonies-Cuba, Puerto Rico, and the Philippines. The United States keeps a keen eye on the developments, eager to scoop up the Caribbean and Pacific islands for themselves. When the USS Maine mysteriously exploded in Havana harbor, President McKinley had the justification for involvement that he was looking for. The US demanded Spain cease control of Cuba. Spain responded with a declaration of War! Can Spain save their crumbling empire or will the US finally arrive as a world power?!]]> Mark Bauer 2013-05-03T14:24:12-04:00 Forest Brothers

The Molotov-Ribentrop pact, carved up eastern Europe into separate "spheres of influence" between the Soviet Union and Nazi Germany placing the Baltic states between two massive armies. Lacking a large enough force to confront either of these mighty super powers, the Baltic states resorted to the one thing they had in their favor, the maze of dense forests and thicks that covered the region. Forming ruthless bands of guerilla fighters, the forest brothers of Latvia, Estonia and Lithuania bravely fought against all odds in an attempt to finally secure a lasting independence. Can the forest brothers accomplish the impossible or will they succumb to the will of the dictators?]]> Mark Bauer 2013-04-26T07:42:51-04:00 Football Lux
