    I was also confused by this my first game until my opponent explained it to me.

    I think the interface "as is" works perfectly, but I would do two things:

    1) Add screenshots to the wiki page, and explain exactly which actions the user needs to take. For example, I'm told to "call up" the reserves, but I'm not told where I need to click to call them up.

    2) Once you have a possible set of reserves, you get an extra "call up reserves" phase just before you deploy. Maybe you should add a red border around the three+ cards to point them out to the user . When the user has five cards and must call up reserves, you get the msg "You must call up reserves" and clicking on the button doesn't do anything. Maybe with that message you could embed a hyperlink in the word "reserves" which would open up the wiki page in a new window.

    yeah.. there are several vectors to improve here... both the UI and the explanation of the UI.

    I'd say, add checkboxes, and highlight more that "Deploy X reserve troops" is a button, and that it belongs to the items on the left.

    For the explanation, there's a help feature - doesn't it describe the process during the reserves phase? A better formulation might help people.

    Yes I was thinking of checkboxes my self, only when there is the ability to call up.

    I see no how to call up serves. Gather and click on 3 of a kind or 3 different colors THEN click the button "Reserve Troops". Am I correct to assume that reserves must be called up during the "Deployment" phase?

    yes...that is correct...reserves can only be called up in deployment phase. I know you are from another risk like site...on this site....auto sets only occur if you have 5 cards or more. So if you have 5 cards or more, the system forces you to cash your set. If you happen to kill an opponent and you just gathered 4 cards with a set....you can not cash that set until your next turn...the deployment phase. hope that helps!
