    • Poem for your consideration
         Ode to Gelli Green I’ll not return to Gelli Green Though summer’s bright and fair For on the slopes of Gelli Green My brothers lost I there Was summer high that fateful year We gazed on Gelli’s hills And take we them, our captain said Our orders to fulfill So called us to the Gelli folk Your land we mean to take And take we will, so leave yea now And battle we’ll forsake Replied the Gelli back to us The choice you give is none In blood you’ll pay us for our home Before you see us run Then forward toward the gelli line advanced our gallant [continue read more…]

    • 500 Games at Major Command Risk
      “500 Games” by Redstorm (Major Command Risk Game Player and Blog Contributor) Approaching my 500th game on MAJORCOMMAND.COM there are a few things I would like to share. First would be “WOW, what a great site to play live or at least semi-live risk like games with new friends from the world over who, as a whole, enjoy the games and site as much as I do. I find myself hopelessly addicted and actually will check for my turns throughout the day. I’m quite sure I’m not the only one. The maps are the first rate, game [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…]

    • 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…]

    • 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: The Lord of the Rings Trilogy Edition
        RISK: The Lord of the Rings Trilogy Edition Review by Sonny Go     J.R.R. Tolkien’s masterwork was turned into a film trilogy that is now the standard in the high fantasy genre cinema, and it spawned plenty of crossovers and adaptations. The classic strategy board game RISK was no less different, and that is how RISK: The Lord of the Rings Trilogy Edition came to be. At last, fans of either franchises can now partake in the epic battles between good and evil depicted in the books and the films. Whether you read the books [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 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!

    • Risk StarCraft Strategy Game
      Risk StarCraft Review by Sonny Go (Independent Game Reviewer) Risk StarCraft Strategy Game – Whether you’re an enthusiast of either board games, video games, or even addicted to playing Risk online against a different opponent everyday, the strategy game genre has pretty much been a constant throughout the years. However, it’s not often that we see a strategy game from one medium jump to another, and that’s pretty much what happened with Risk StarCraft—two world-famous franchises combined in one board game. It’s [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
