    • Playing Risk on Major Command after 5 years
      Why am I still playing Risk on this site after 5 years? by JCUK   Well it all began in 1996… just kidding, that’s how I started my first blog on Major Command. I just read that blog from 2017 back and it and had a little chuckle to myself. I thought it would be interesting for someone to read by first blog and then my views a few years later to see how my outlook has changed, if at all. Even I’m not 100% sure as I am penning this now. My initial thoughts are that Major Command has changed a little, either that or I have, maybe a [continue read more…]

    • My Longest Game of RISK.… A Short Story
      My Longest Game… a short story by Redstorm (Major Command Risk Game Player and Blog Contributor)   There are just some things in this online world of Risk players that should be avoided at all costs unless you identify strongly with turtles. Long lasting games played at a snail’s pace for a small reward is one of them. I found out this universal truth the hard way by joining a game on the wonderful 12 domains map. Now, like every map in our little slice of digital heaven, this map contains some jewels of design that make it simple to play [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: Star Wars Edition Original Trilogy
      Risk: Star Wars Edition Review by Sonny Go (Independent Game Reviewer) Risk: Star Wars – With renewed vigor, the Star Wars franchise has re-entered modern pop culture. Star Wars merchandise is now hotter than ever with greater mainstream appeal due to its legendary status in pop culture. Perhaps it’s because of that, it’s worth looking at Risk: Star Wars Edition, a variant of Risk that takes place in Star Wars: Return of the Jedi. If you’re in the mood for some Star Wars action after re-watching Star Wars: The Force [continue read more…]

    • 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’s an interesting concept, and there is the added benefit of knowing your kids won’t be exposed to the [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…]

    • 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…]

  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?

  4. Hello is there anyone left running this site …. I can see to log onto the forums, and Im having issues with my diplomacy tab, as in it wont allow me to use the drop downs to pick the countries Id like a truce with, the first is blank, and the second just says all
