_Lucullus_ is a Hebrew adaptation of the classic board game Risk, renamed
after a Roman general who, according to legend (or so the game claims), had
invented a similar game in ancient times. 2 to 6 players may compete for world
domination; in a two-player game, a third participant is represented by the
computer, which controls a weaker, neutral army only capable of defense.
The familiar objective remains the same: destroy the opposing armies and
conquer the world. First, the 42 territory cards are divided between the
warring parties, who must distribute their armies among them. Each game turn
begins with reinforcements, where additional armies are allocated; then comes
the battle stage, with the results determined by a dice roll. Finally, the
current player is allowed one transfer of forces between adjacent areas. Cards
are awarded for conquered territories – a series of cards (three with the same
symbol) can be traded in for reinforcements.
