    • 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…]

    • 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…]

    • Risk: Lux Delux
      Lux Delux Review Review by Albert Bassili (Independent Game Reviewer) Risk: Lux Delux – While there are an almost endless amount of Risk variation board games out there, sometimes a Risk game player just wants more, and this is where Lux Delux comes in. Originally released in 2002 by developer SillySoft, this entry into Risk video game will surely quench some of your thirst when it comes to branching out from the traditional Risk maps and gameplay.

    • 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…]

    • A Risk Game Player’s Mask
      A Player’s Mask by Redstorm (Online Risk Game Player and Blog Contributor) Being online allows for being anonymous which just begs for the imagination to soar.  You can portray yourself as anyone or anything you wish to be.  This phenomenon is especially useful when playing games online.  Something about competing without our normal societal standards at risk seems to bring out some real definable characters.  We all wear some or all of them, even when not online, as we aspire to impress or deceive or give false praise…. whatever it may be.  [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…]

  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
