    • 1vs1 Tournament: Why is it Popular and Why do People Hate it!?
      The 1 vs 1 tournament is loved, hated, and debated.  Why do people play it?  For many reasons: some love the number of quicker games it offers some love the speed at which the tourneys start some love the fact they will get to play higher ranking players that they would not normally get the opportunity to play and take their points knowing they are unlikely to win the tournament. They still effectively win by only winning one game. Why do people hate it?  A less psychological strategy is required and more reliant on luck/odds, whether that [continue read more…]

      Risk 2210 AD Review by Sonny Go (Independent Game Reviewer) Imagine the classic Risk game being revised to fit a completely different theme, from the Napoleonic War to science fiction. While the classic Risk game is indeed a great game with solid gameplay, but there had always been yearning for something more. Since the core gameplay ruleset is quite flexible, there have actually been variations to the game that have taken off, letting players experience it in many other ways, and a sci-fi variant was certainly not far behind. What is Risk [continue read more…]

      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.

      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…]

    • The Psychology Behind Playing RISK
      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.

      What I Always Wanted To Be by CKO (Major Command Risk Game Player and Blog Contributor)   T his is something very difficult for me to express and to write, it’s like my life summary and a thanks to all parents who think of good education for their kids. I hope it’s of some use.

    • 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 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
