Battle for world domination with every roll of the dice in Risk!

Based on the classic board game of strategic conquest from Hasbro, Risk comes to life online where the object of the game is simple: Global Domination! Establish your military objectives, take command of your army and begin your campaign to rule the world. Risk is a turn based game with each player starting with their own controllable army in an attempt to capture territories from opposing players and control the entire map.


Acquire
The game of Risk starts with players taking turns selecting, or acquiring, a territory until all territories have been claimed. Once all territories have been claimed, the Deployment Phase begins.

Deploy
In the deployment phase, players place their remaining units on territories they occupy. Deployment is done one army per turn and ends when the last player has placed his last army.

Attack
Take turns with other players as you receive reinforcements, attack and ultimately capture your opponents' territories.

Fortify
Don't forget to strengthen your defenses and fortify your territories! Doing so will help you take control of the entire map.

RISK is a strategic board game for 3-5 players. It is played on a map of the Earth, divided into 42 territories on 6 continents. Each player starts with and controls their own army and attempt to capture territories from opposing players. The object of the game is simple: Global Domination!


At the start of each game you will choose your color then acquire and deploy your armies. Next, you will take turns with the other players as you receive reinforcements, attack, and fortify your defenses. Capturing one or more territories will earn you a territory card. When you collect three identical or three different territory cards you may cash them in for bonus armies. Capturing and controlling territories and continents also award bonus armies each turn.

Capturing territories comes during your Attack Phase, where you eliminate occupying opponent armies through a series of simulated dice rolls. The odds of victory are typically obvious (the army with the most units will usually win), but luck of the dice can reduce a sure victory into a shocking defeat. The element of "risk" is ever present!

Your game ends when you have control of the entire map (the default global domination rules), control 24 territories (an optional rule), you run out of turns and victor is declared (based on a combination of armies, territories, and territory cards), or you are eliminated. Good luck and have fun!

Here are some additional pointers designed to help you become a more advanced Risk player.

If you prefer a single player game, click on the "Play against Robots" link on the Risk game home page. You will find the artificial intelligence to be a worthy opponent!

Risk plays in a super-sized 1000 x 600 game window. If you find the game window extends beyond the edge of your monitor, close the application and reset your screen resolution to at least 1024 x 768.

If you would like to begin your attack with less than the full attack dice (which then forces you to move fewer armies into the captured territory), RIGHT-click on the target opponent territory and you will be given the choice of attack dice (up to 3 if you have enough armies).

RISK cards become increasingly important as the game progresses, as each time the cards are turned in the number of bonus armies increases.

When customizing your game know the audience. Most players will be turned off with manual dice rolls or may not like the automatic set-up option. Gather your hard core RISK friends and play a long, manual dice rolling, no time limit game, or grab a few strangers for an ultra-fast game with all the speediest settings chosen!

Risk • Re: How do I play with my friends?

By Mod_Jada » April 22nd, 2015, 6:08 pm

First make sure that your friend is on your friends list and that you are on his or her list. Also make sure that you are not in Stealth Mode or your friend won't be able to see where you are,

Now go the game, choose a room and choose an empty table. You will get a pop up allowing you to set your table options.
When your friend goes to the friends list he or she will see where you are and will be able to join you.

One of the table options allows you to make the table private by giving it a password. You can send that password to your friend's guestbook.

You don't have to make the table private but do make sure to checkmark the box that says "Allow players to replace computer players."

@GIJoe620

There are three new Risk badges in the original Starter Album that Pogo gave us. If you click on the Challenges tab beneath the games home screen you will see them under the Free Weekly Badges header.

Or you can click on the Badges tab at the top of the screen > My Collection > Weekly Badge Albums > Click on the Next arrow three times and you will see the Starter Album I'm referring to.

If you have already completed all of your Personal Challenges for this week you will need to wait until tomorrow for
the new Weekly Challenges to go live.

Risk • New Badges?

By GIJoe620 » March 31st, 2015, 11:55 am

I been playing pogo for awhile. I have done the non weekly badges multiple times (to the point that I get 0 tokens to redo) I was just wondering if there was any plans in the near future to add any badges for this game.

Any badges such as weekly, premium, or even mix n match would be awesome.

Risk • Re: Few players in Pogo Club Rooms

By Seska42 » March 1st, 2015, 6:28 pm

My guess is that many of the people who are in rooms by themselves are playing robots at private tables so they wouldn't be potential opponents even if they were all in the same room.

Risk • Few players in Pogo Club Rooms

By BabyBoy1596 » March 1st, 2015, 6:27 pm

Why don't club pogo members try to fill up rooms instead of spreading out across all rooms. It'll make finding games much easier.

Risk • Re: Bigger chatrooms

By Mod_Kyra » February 5th, 2015, 12:42 am

The who's here list can be adjusted up and down by using the scroll arrows between that and chat. I use it often. I'd agree that the chat area isn't sufficient to see a conversation between several active participants without having to scroll.

Pushing the arrows up will enlarge the space for chat. It shouldn't be necessary to always go to private chat; muting for those who prefer a less busy chat area is equally an option. Even when it's available.

Not sure what you mean by private chat? I use the chat rooms in the game where everyone is playing. Most of the time you can only read what one person said at a time.

I believe there is a way to make that chat area larger by clicking on the arrows...I think. I had to do that once when I couldn't read but one person at a time.

Thanks, I'll give that a try and see how it goes :)
