Castle Vox is a next generation computer strategy board game. Play on historical, geometric, geographic, and fantasy settings. New maps get added all the time, and can be one-click installed using the built-in Map Manager. No waiting while other players make their moves. Everyone plans their moves at the same time. When planning is finished, all battles are resolved simultaneously. Finish an epic game in half an hour. Collaborate with teammates to conquer your enemies. Jointly occupy continents to earn their bonuses. Secret team chat in multi-player modes. Single-player computer AIs will give your brain a good workout. Fast real-time multi-player games. Or play slower once-a-day turns games.

Castle Vox is Risk with more strategy and more realistic gameplay. You get two unit types, offensive and defensive; Castles, which allow you to produce units on their province; And simultaneous movement, which both speeds up gameplay and adds a whole new layer to the strategy (predicting where the enemy will be and where he will attack, while planing your next moves). With both coop and competitive multiplayer, good AI for every difficulty level, and many maps, there is a lot of content here.

It is a great simple strategy game. Anyone can pick it up and start playing, but it sure takes a long time to master.
