Chapter 5 Inspiration

December 6, 2016

What started out as a simple game of luck and movement, Lukboc had gradually evolved into a complex mathematical strategy game playable by two or four players. Since the game had appeared at least 200 years before the invention of writing paper in China, Lukboc's counting sticks and cutting tools were evidence of an effective score keeping mechanism ever included in a portable board game. By replacing the bamboo throwing sticks with polyhedral dice, the game has become highly portable, efficient and convenient for players. It has transformed the gaming culture of the Chinese society for the next 2,500 years. Today, we can only witness the once great game of Lukboc through stone statues, sculptures  and paintings displayed in the museum behind sealed-glass cabinets. Hopefully in the near future, we will unlock the great secrets behind Lukboc and reintroduce the game to the world with rules adapted to the modern era. Based on years of strategy game research and the study of Lukboc, Quxacto Games will soon unveil this popular game from a gamer's perspective. Historians, hobbyists, and researchers have always overlooked what makes Lukboc fun to play in the first place. Just like the ancient Lukboc, there is more than one way to play the game.

We will freely provide all game rules and components in 3D printing files for you to test play the game using our Qu-MAT or drawing your own board on paper. And of course, you can enjoy many more games besides Lukboc on our Qu-MAT. At Quxacto Games, we are constantly developing games that can bring the entire family together without age boundary. Subscribe to our newsletter today, and you will be able to download the physical game of Lukboc to your desktop. We strongly encourage teachers, students, and gamers to participate this historic event, to share their feedback online and to continue the evolution of Lukboc into the future.
