Strategery : World domination is the name of the game here, with a feel similar to the classic board game Risk, but abstracted to a high level of elegance. Players choose a map—there are tons of them—and play against Al opponents, friends from their address book, or random opponents online. There’s also a local pass-and-play option for those who like to be in the same room. Each territory on the map contains a certain number of troops, represented by dots. On every turn, players get troop reinforcements according to the number of connected territories they have control over. The differently colored Al opponents have different personalities, which factor into the strategy. There are four map sizes and four levels of difficulty, and multiplayer matches can include up to four other people. This is a game that takes “simple to learn, hard to master” to a whole new level.
