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!

Thanks a lot! I'm new to the site and the bonus thing was really ruining the game for me.

Risk • Bonuses

By fidelcashflo00 » August 24th, 2016, 10:43 pm

The bonuses get insanely high and destroy any elements of strategy that the game could have when it's down to two or three players. There should be a cap on bonuses, 15-20 extra troops is more than enough and if you've been playing badly you shouldn't be bailed out by a massive 50-60 troop bonus, that's just ridiculous.

From what they're telling me at the help site, they don't consider a problem any longer.

That ad has been removed several times but it keeps popping up every now and then.

Pogo is aware of the issue but there is no permanent fix-by date at the moment.

Risk • Anyone having problems with the top of the board being cut?

By PBzeer » August 17th, 2016, 2:19 pm

Whenever a Fitbit ad plays, it repositions the player, and then when the game comes back, the top of the board is gone. This first cropped up last month, and though they tell me (at Answers HQ) that it's fixed, it's still happening to me. They say no one is mentioning it any longer, so I thought I'd ask and see if it was still happening to anyone else and like myself, have just given up on it getting fixed.

Risk • Too many ClubPogo Risk rooms

By MrPateI » July 23rd, 2016, 11:16 pm

With so many available Club Pogo RISK rooms, players are pretty much spread out and it is nearly impossible to see more than 5 people in a club pogo Risk room.

The only room that seems to fill up is City Slickers, which is a free room. Inadvertently, you will almost always end up playing at a table with free members, which means you will have to wait for intermissions during the game.

Is there any way that pogo can trim out most of the club pogo rooms so the remaining few can fill up? This would be much appreciated.

Pogo is aware of the problem and they are working on a fix.

There is nothing you can do on your end except wait until the problem is completely resolved.

From Known Issues:

Various rooms are down in some games. Thank you for your patience as we work to open them back up as quickly as possible.
