The maturity era of lattice quantum field theory simulations brings in ample potential both to explore theories beyond QCD, and to investigate the qualitative workings of QCD by opening up the parameter space. We will focus on studying hadronic interactions and weak decays as a function of the number of colours, with four dynamical quark flavours. This shines light on classic problems such as the \Delta I=1/2 rule, or the dynamics of spontaneous chiral symmetry breaking.
