    I have been meaning to try Lux at some point, though I am not a big turn-based strategy fan, but with it being Risk based I do not think it would be that hard to play. What interested me about these games is not so much the games themselves but the maps made by the community and the fact it is one of the few historical themed Linux games, except for the Civilization and Colonization clones. Some of the custom maps made for Lux look quite creative. Could be something to play until 0 A.D is finished.
