    • 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…]

    • Risk: Star Wars 2015 Edition
      Risk: Star Wars 2015 Edition Review by Nikola Brankovic (Independent Game Reviewer) Star Wars Risk 2015 – I sure hope you’re in the mood for something fun, because we’ve discovered Hasbro has released a board game to complement their release of the latest Star Wars movie. In the hype for the movie itself I missed the board game, but a friend pointed it out to me, so it’s time to have a look at it and see if it’s any good. First of all, there are two editions of Risk Star Wars on the market. Well, actually three if you consider the Star [continue read more…]

    • Risk: Godstorm Strategy Guide
      Risk Godstorm Strategy Review by Nikola Brankovic (Independent Game Reviewer) If you are reading this, then you already know about all the various online RISK game options. But when it comes to a challenging Risk board game, RISK: Godstorm holds a very high position on any list of RISK games, and for good reason too! Here’s a strategy game that has only 5 “turns” and yet shows complexity many other games can’t reach. If you are not familiar with RISK: GODSTORM, then read our game review first!

    • 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…]

    • My Experiences From Years of Gaming
      Years Of Gaming – My Doubles Experiences by legionbuck (Major Command Risk Game Player and Blog Contributor) After all these years of gaming I have a regular doubles partner here on Major Command, and we both migrated here from another site. Edsdad and I fought about 4 games against each other on the old site, then joined forces. That was on July 10, 2008… and we have been doubles partners for all these years of gaming. Playing with a partner for that long can get more involved than just playing tactics and styles. I live in the [continue read more…]

    • Risk: Metal Gear Solid
      Risk: Metal Gear Solid Review by Sonny Go (Independent Game Reviewer) Through everything that the Metal Gear Solid series went through, from its pre-Solid days, its breakout in the PlayStation, all the sequels, and finally its drama-filled conclusion due to Konami’s schizophrenia. But before things did go completely south, something other than the last two Metal Gear Solid did come out of it. This is Risk: Metal Gear Solid, a crossover between the world-famous video game and the strategy board game. Overview This mashup is based on Metal [continue read more…]

    • My First Game of RISK
      It all began in 1996… by JCUK (jon7064) (Major Command Risk Game Player and Blog Contributor) I wanted to write a few words about why I play risk and what have I learned from playing this great game. My first introduction to the game of Risk was during a tour of Bosnia in 1996. I had been in the army for 6 months and found myself in a little place in the Balkans called Gornji Vakuf. We had 1 TV channel to watch while we were out there and a bar that we were allowed to drink 2 cans of beer a night (when I say 2 cans, it wasn’t policed [continue read more…]

    • Risk: Godstorm
      RISK Godstorm Game Review Review by Albert Bassili (Independent Game Reviewer) Risk Godstorm is another variation of the classic Risk game. There’are lots of other Risk board game variations out there, especially in the Risk online gaming world, but very few which bring the pantheon aspect as RISK Godstorm. Released in 2002 by Avalon Hill, Risk Godstorm brings in a cart load of new features, including a secondary board and timed gameplay. Your ultimate goal is to have the highest points when the clock strikes zero, or more technically when the [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
