    • Risk Junior: Narnia
      Risk Junior: Narnia by Hasbro Review by¬†Albert Bassili (Independent Game Reviewer) Risk Junior: Narnia, is an interesting entry into the Risk franchise, focusing more on introducing the game Risk to children more than anything else. Released in 2006 by Hasbro, this entry gives parents and family members to introduce Risk to them in an easy a simple manner, without devolving into the complex strategy of classic Risk. Overall it‚Äôs an interesting concept, and there is the added benefit of knowing your kids won’t be¬†exposed to the [continue read more‚Ķ]

    • 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 Lifetime of Playing Risk
      A Lifetime of Playing Risk by Morganmason (Major Command Risk Game Player and Blog Contributor) Playing Risk has always been one of the favorite games to play. I was introduced to it as a young adult at parties where groups of (mainly) guys would gather around a table for the evening while rock music blared and others danced, talked and laughed. I was quite fascinated, watching them roll dice and move groups of armies around on the board. I purchased my first Risk game at the thrift store. It was an ancient version with wooden cubes for [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‚Ķ]

    • 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‚Ķ]

    • Major Command Second Family
      Major Command as a Second Family by legionbuck (Major Command Risk Game Player and Blog Contributor) Recently I have read a few posts in The Mess that has a player venting about family issues . We all can use some vent time for various reasons. What I find so amazing is the fact those issues expressed in The Mess show a depth of personal experiences that someone would not disclose unless they felt completely at ease with posting them in public ( so to speak ) and carry a heavy dose of personal pain that normally no one would disclose to [continue read more…]

    • Risk: Lux Delux
      Lux Delux Review Review by¬†Albert Bassili (Independent Game Reviewer) Risk: Lux Delux – While there are an almost endless amount of Risk variation board games out there, sometimes a Risk game player just wants more, and this is where Lux Delux comes in. Originally released in 2002 by developer SillySoft, this entry into Risk video game will surely quench some of your thirst when it comes to branching out from the traditional Risk maps and gameplay. Of course, it doesn’t compare to the variety of options that a game of RISK online [continue read more‚Ķ]

  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?
