Capital Lux 2: Generations is a soloable sequel to the Capital Lux sci-fi-themed card game. It will launch on Kickstarter on May 19.
In Capital Lux 2, you are managing members of four different factions (the Rebels, the Spirituals, the Nobles, and the Scientists), and deciding which ones to send to the Capital and which to keep in your Home Base. In the multiplayer mode, players are drafting a hand of six cards, and then choose to either play one card in the middle of the table, in the Capital, or place it in their Home Base. Cards sent to the Capital are placed under their matching colour and trigger the power effect of the corresponding Power tile. Cards kept in the Home Base may give victory points in the end. The game lasts for 3 rounds, and the player with the highest score wins.
In the solo mode, you are playing against an automated opponent called Rob. You will give Rob a hand of citizen cards and a Home Base, and in every round, Rob will play a card from his AI deck. The cards in Rob's deck tell you which citizen cards to draw for him and where they should be placed (Capital or Home Base). After 3 rounds, you compare your score against Rob's.
