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!

Actually, you may have to clear your caches everyday because they fill up quickly.

Flash games use a lot of resources. Some players need to clear their caches several times a day depending on the age of their computer, how much RAM they have, and how much they play. The longer you play, the quicker your Flash cache will become full.

Click on the link in my post above. It will show you how to set your Global Storage to allow more room for Flash content.

It happened again, this time in Trivia. I have cleared both my browsers and my flash. I shouldn't need to clear my Flash everyday because I never used to clear it that much and it would always work just fine.

You need to clear your Flash cache often.
Many players clear the Flash cache daily because it fills up quickly.
It's best to clear your browser's cache, history, temp files, and cookies first. Make sure "Preserve Favorite Website Data" is not checkmarked when you clear your cache.
Close your browser after that and then clear the Flash cache.
Restart your browser.

Also see the thread linked below. It will show you how to adjust your Flash Storage Settings:

I cleaned my cache: Under both "Storage" and "Advanced tabs" I chose "delete all." Yet I just had the same problem, this time in Spades.

And, you can always start a game with only 4 players. Select an empty table and on the Options window, uncheck the box to Allow bots to fill empty seats, then when you get 3 or 4 players, you can start the game.
I have a few friends and we cannot always get together to play for Badges (that's the only time I play this game) and this works for me every time.

You could always play with the robot opponents if other people are not playing the game.

Yep. Means you need to clean your Flash cache. And, if you increase the storage for cache you will have better play.
Us this link to increase your storage. Click the Global Storage link and move the dial all the way to the right to where it says Unlimited. Then click on Never ask again. (also, make sure all three are checked)


Your Flash Player Manger

To clean your Flash cache, use your Control Panel and click on Flash and then delete.

In the middle of my RISK game the screen went blank and all that appeared in its place was a white exclamation mark surrounded by a gray circle. Any idea what it could mean?

Risk • Re: player continuesly changing seats (cheating)

By Mod_Kyra » January 19th, 2017, 3:23 am

When changing seats/rejoining games is permitted in game options, it is not in violation.
As posted above, table settings can prevent this behavior. It is up to the player to ensure that the game they start/join is being played according to that member's preferred settings.

Forums guidelines do not permit naming players in an accusatory fashion.

It sounds like you have malware/grayware/adware on your computer. Take a look at the following linked thread for more information:
