    • 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…]

    • 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. There are many players that discuss strategy such as ‘be every where and no where’ etc. What is never really discussed is the psychology behind [continue read more…]

    • Play Risk Tips and Strategies
      Risk Tips and Strategies by Redstorm (Major Command Risk Game Player and Blog Contributor) Forward: Several players graciously shared their game knowledge with me. I have freely edited their remarks while maintaining their unique intent. Any mistakes are purely my own. Playing Tactics   Don’t be a command monkey compulsively reaching for a command. While securing commands certainly has a great deal of importance in escalite and flat rate games, chasing them in escalate games is a recipe for disaster. I tend to employ a combination of the [continue read more…]

    • 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…]

    • Risk: Star Wars Edition Original Trilogy
      Risk: Star Wars Edition Review by Sonny Go (Independent Game Reviewer) Risk: Star Wars – With renewed vigor, the Star Wars franchise has re-entered modern pop culture. Star Wars merchandise is now hotter than ever with greater mainstream appeal due to its legendary status in pop culture. Perhaps it’s because of that, it’s worth looking at Risk: Star Wars Edition, a variant of Risk that takes place in Star Wars: Return of the Jedi. If you’re in the mood for some Star Wars action after re-watching Star Wars: The Force [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…]

    • 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…]

    • Risk: Metal Gear Solid
      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…]

  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
