If you're into strategy games like Risk, you'll want to check out Lux, a shareware game for the Mac that pays homage to the classic board game. Here's a clip from the review:

Backtracking a bit to the gameplay component, there are no real surprises here. The game plays like a standard Risk game, though it has plenty of options for unique variations. You can change the number of bonus units per card set, give players time limits, and adjust how the game starts: do you pick your own territories or are they randomly assigned? The interface is basic point-and-click, and the AI has several strategy types to choose from, ranging from ultra-defensive to ultra-aggressive and every variation in between. Donít expect clever thinking from the AI as much as pre-programmed strategies, but the more difficult AI players can be a challenge to beat.
