Capital Lux – What Will Your Strategy Be?

Category: Age: 10+ 30 Min 2 - 4 Players 2016

Capital Lux is a sci-fi card game, which is played over three rounds and requires strategical thinking.

Each player has a hometown in front of them, while there is also the capital in the middle of the table. Players have some character cards to play and each character belongs to one of the four professions: Merchant, Agent, Scholar and Cleric. On your turn, you play either a card to your hometown, which gives you victory points or you play a card to the capital, which allows you to benefit from the card’s special action.

Even though you might want to play as many cards as possible to your hometown in order to score points, you must also play cards to the capital, since the total value for each profession in your hometown is not allowed to be higher than the total value of the capital. In case you are over a limit for one of the professions, you lose all cards of the specific profession from your hometown. At the end of the third round, you score points for the characters remaining in your hometown and the player with the most points wins the game.

So, choose wisely how you are going to play your cards, for each one of them counts!
