    • 500 Games at Major Command Risk
      “500 Games” by Redstorm (Major Command Risk Game Player and Blog Contributor) Approaching my 500th game on MAJORCOMMAND.COM there are a few things I would like to share. First would be “WOW, what a great site to play live or at least semi-live risk like games with new friends from the world over who, as a whole, enjoy the games and site as much as I do. I find myself hopelessly addicted and actually will check for my turns throughout the day. I’m quite sure I’m not the only one. The maps are the first rate, game [continue read more…]

    • RISK: The Lord of the Rings Trilogy Edition
        RISK: The Lord of the Rings Trilogy Edition Review by Sonny Go     J.R.R. Tolkien’s masterwork was turned into a film trilogy that is now the standard in the high fantasy genre cinema, and it spawned plenty of crossovers and adaptations. The classic strategy board game RISK was no less different, and that is how RISK: The Lord of the Rings Trilogy Edition came to be. At last, fans of either franchises can now partake in the epic battles between good and evil depicted in the books and the films. Whether you read the books [continue read more…]

    • Play Risk Tips and Strategies
      Risk Tips and Strategies by Redstorm (Major Command Risk Game Player and Blog Contributor) Forward: Several players graciously shared their game knowledge with me. I have freely edited their remarks while maintaining their unique intent. Any mistakes are purely my own. Playing Tactics   Don’t be a command monkey compulsively reaching for a command. While securing commands certainly has a great deal of importance in escalite and flat rate games, chasing them in escalate games is a recipe for disaster. I tend to employ a combination of the [continue read more…]

    • Risk StarCraft Strategy Game
      Risk StarCraft Review by Sonny Go (Independent Game Reviewer) Risk StarCraft Strategy Game – Whether you’re an enthusiast of either board games, video games, or even addicted to playing Risk online against a different opponent everyday, the strategy game genre has pretty much been a constant throughout the years. However, it’s not often that we see a strategy game from one medium jump to another, and that’s pretty much what happened with Risk StarCraft—two world-famous franchises combined in one board game. It’s [continue read more…]

    • Risk on Steam
      Risk on Steam vs Classic Risk Review by Nikola Brankovic (Independent Game Reviewer) Risk on Steam by PopCap Studios was a game that I was very excited to have the chance to review. Risk is an ultra-popular board game which was with us since the late 1950’s, so I was really looking forward to a modern PC iteration of it. After all, there are so many ways this grand conquest strategy game can be made awesome on the PC, and I really need the break from complex 4x (eXplore, eXpand, eXploit and eXterminate) games and enjoy just the most important [continue read more…]

    • A Risk Game Player’s Mask
      A Player’s Mask by Redstorm (Online Risk Game Player and Blog Contributor) Being online allows for being anonymous which just begs for the imagination to soar.  You can portray yourself as anyone or anything you wish to be.  This phenomenon is especially useful when playing games online.  Something about competing without our normal societal standards at risk seems to bring out some real definable characters.  We all wear some or all of them, even when not online, as we aspire to impress or deceive or give false praise…. whatever it may be.  [continue read more…]

    • Hey, It’s Only a Game
      “Hey, It’s Only a Game”… or is it? by Redstorm (Major Command Risk Game Player and Blog Contributor) Only a game… Many of us fondly remember those long hours spent playing those wonderful board games as a child. Sure, there were moments when we went savage about who gets what color or marker and most assuredly someone always probably cheated somehow. But we learned things as we played like cooperation, sharing, and sportsmanship. We also felt the thrill of winning and the crush of defeat. Most likely it was then [continue read more…]

    • Risk Factions – Video Game
      Risk Factions Review by Sonny Go (Independent Game Reviewer) Risk Factions – Now we are all familiar with playing Risk online using a computer, but if you ever do see a video game console version of a board game, it’s usually in a way that doesn’t account for bridging the gap between the mechanical differences between the two media, and how it accounts for multiplayer gameplay. Translating a video game into a tabletop game is something that tends to happen from time to time, with various tabletop versions of popular video [continue read more…]

  1. Yo- you guys need to create an awol button so people can opt out. I’m tired of waiting 5 minutes every turn when people walk away. Let us opt out rather than just walk out.

  2. Hi folks,

    Would it be an idea the make people automatically loose the game when they miss their first (1) turn in 2 player games… it is a horrible strategy and when it is not a strategy.. well.. if you miss the first day at work you will get fired.. if you miss a first date… you don’t get a kiss… how people manage to miss their first round i don’t get…

    kind regards, Buddy

  3. Hello Im would like to find out what is up with my diplomacy score I broke a treaty 11 days ago, and my diplomacy score went from 1000 to 160, seems a little harsh to me, is there anything that can be done to correct it, as it should of only dropped by 30 …. NO?
