"The Art of War" is a risk-like web-based, contemporary moves game for 2 or more players. The turn is run only after all players have submitted their moves. The game can be played on different maps (3 different ones are provided as of September 2005).

The game is customisable, since there are several differnet variants available: for example, one can decide whether each player starts with a single territory or the map is filled at the start of the game. Other options include reinforcements displacement (anywhere on the map or automatic), helpless or defending neutral territories, and the possibility of enabling/disabling private messages.

To win the game, a good mix of tactics, psychology, determination and diplomacy are required.
