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!

I wasn't aware there was a play again problem. Mine works on both Chrome and Firefox. What browser are you using?

I clear caches on a regular basis ... and obviously I've been playing this game alone for a number of years. So the question is VERY simple .... when is Pogo going to fix the "play again" problem?

It means that only Club Members can use that option.
I've never used it with my play name and I don't play the game often.
Hopefully someone who plays a lot of Risk will come along and explain how to use that option.

The Alliance Feature is confusing to me. Where do I even form alliances, and what are the reasons/ benefits for making an alliance?

A: See the "Club Pogo Benefits" section for details on how to make an alliance and some of the details on how it works. If you follow your menu options it should be pretty self explanatory. Note that, to BREAK an alliance formally, you must open that player’s menu and formally break the alliance. The usefulness of the feature is that it allows players who don’t know each other to make temporary truces to team-up against a more powerful ally or allies. The honor rating should be considered, here, as it is a telling gauge of how much you can trust another player (and they you!).



Hi Jada,,, I looked there,, that's why I came here and asked,,,, "Club Pogo Benefits" say nothing about alliance...What was written in the "bubble" is over my head.. Can someone please explain in layman term? :oops:

Risk • Alliance -- what it is?

By SpottedLee » June 26th, 2014, 8:06 am

I was playing Risk and I noticed "offer alliance" or something like that. I clicked on the link to find out. The link took me to Club Pogo benefit page, but nothing in it say anything about it.

It said that many games in Pogo have it.

Anyone know what it is? :roll:

Risk • Screen blurs after hitting Start button

By Jengy58 » June 22nd, 2014, 10:48 am

I am using the Windows 7 operating system and Firefox browser on my laptop. Every time I open the game, as soon as I hit the start button, the board blurs. Tried changing to Chrome and that worked at first but sometimes happens there as well. IE seems to work most of the time but I primarily use Mozilla so would like for it to work there. Also, I use Windows Vista on my desktop and have not experienced any problem. I am not having a problem with any other games. Can anyone offer a solution?

hello cryding,
yes it is addicting! hehe
flash recently updated: 14.0.0.125
and when you first go to play do you make the local flash level setting to *unlimited*
and do you clear flash caches on daily basis?
the only reason Im askin this is because flash based games are memory hogs and that
the default settin for local flash settin level is 50%

I reached Rank 50 on Mar 20, 2011.

Risk is a good game to play while you are distracted with other things. I have the timers turned off so that I can make my move, go do something else while the 4 robots make their moves, then come back and the game is ready for me to make my next move. I can clean the whole house and play Pogo at the same time. :D
