Capital Lux 2: Generations is a standalone sequel to the acclaimed tactical card game from 2016. This new streamlined version introduces a range of exchangeable capital powers that can be mixed and matched as you like. This allows for a total of 256 unique power combinations. One of these combinations plays as the original Capital Lux, while the other 255 present the players new tactical challenges.

The core of the game revolves around the following dilemma: Do you play character cards in your home base for points, or contribute them to the capital to benefit from their powers? At the end of a round, you are not allowed to have a higher total value in your home base for any color than the current total value in the capital. Exceeding the limit makes you lose those cards. At the end of the third round, all cards remaining in your home base are worth points.

The game therefore turns into an act of balancing on a razor’s edge: Secure as many points for yourself without exceeding the capital’s limit — always taking into account the current capital powers.
