Welcome to Xconq!
Xconq is a powerful multi-player strategy game system. With Xconq you can build empires, fight wars, relive history, and adventure across fantastic worlds. You can play computerized board games, or be Godzilla rampaging through Tokyo.
Xconq runs on many computer systems. It includes user interfaces for Unix/X11 systems, Apple Macintosh, and PCs running Windows 95/98/NT. Although all share the same basic design, the "look and feel" of each interface matches the system you're on. The details of an actual Xconq game depend heavily on its game design, which defines the pieces in the game and the rules of play. So, to understand everything about a game you're playing, you need both this manual, and documentation for the game design in effect. While this seems like a lot, most games don't use every feature of Xconq, and the game program itself includes plenty of online guidance.
