    • 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…]

    • I am the game of Risk Online
      10 Commandments of Risk Online by Redstorm (Major Command Risk Game Player and Blog Contributor) NOTE: This article is purely for fun with no intent to offend anyone’s religion. 1. I am the game of Risk Online. You shall place no other gods before me. Well, when you hope and pray that the dice will be good, just exactly who are you asking for help? The dice, Zeus, Mighty Mouse and even, yes, God have all passed my lips when I really need that roll. My good luck charm probably fits in this category since it hangs right above my monitor. I do [continue read more…]

      The Psychology Behind RISK A short post for the community corner: by JCUK The psychology behind playing RISK, the seen but not spoken…. RISK is a game of diplomacy, strength and threat. Not always obvious and sometimes people don’t see what is happening until it is too late. The best RISK players apply all elements of this strategy to best affect knowing which to apply and when.

    • 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…]

    • Risk: Black Ops
      Risk: Black Ops Review by Sonny Go (Independent Game Reviewer) Risk: Black Ops – We all love to play RISK online, but when it came out in 2008, Risk: Black Ops became unique a template for newer Risk variants that may have needed something more going for them. The classic Risk game came out during the late 1950s, so it can’t be denied by many that an overhaul or at least some sort of revision is necessary for the game to stay relevant. Besides the obvious answer of playing Risk online like you would here with the Major Command game [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: 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 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…]

  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
