MTF Risk

Some of us in the Board Game thread would like to play an online version of Risk, so I thought I'd open it up to others The platform that's most recommended is wargear.net: lots of support, options for private play, and a variety of board layouts should we wish to branch out. This is open to anyone, no expertise required (I am proof). The basic rules of play are here.

Recommended board types:

- Wargear Warfare board i.e. standard Risk board: accommodates up to 10 players here.
- World War
- Colossal Crusade
- Civil War

Game speed options:

Real time (10 minute turn limit)
Daily (1 day turn limit)
Quick (2 day turn limit)
Regular (3 day turn limit)
Extended (7 day turn limit)

If you don't complete your turn within that time, your go is automatically passed over (there are other options that can be enabled, e.g. automatically boot you out ). My preference is either for the Daily or Quick turn limit, but it depends on people's availability. Don't really mind.

How to join us:

- Set up an account on WarGear - Risk Everything, preferably with something resembling your MTF username.
- Post your username here, and someone will likely set up a game that includes you Alternatively, feel free to set one up yourself
- Options for team play and individual play are available (team play is very good for beginners - will give you a feel for the game and its various strategies).

Current list of MTFers playing there:

BMT360
Djoker
ESPNGEEK
floki
Haneul
ibreak4coffee
Litotes
Loosie
PortlandTimbers
Pratik
ProudSerb
Randy73291
Redolent

Re: MTF Risk

I might sign up tonight at home and give this a go. I agree going with daily or quick. I would likely only be able to take my turn in the evening (unless it's a weekend)

Re: MTF Risk

Thanks for organizing everything @Redolent

I signed up and am ready to play.

I'd prefer daily. Even with this setting, one game might take months depending on the #of players.
But if the majority is for a different option, I am fine, too.

Re: MTF Risk

Haven't played this since I was a kid. Need to check the game rules.

I've created an account. My name is redshift.

I'd prefer daily, 10min turns requires everybody to be available at the same time.

NOTE: Sorry to anyone who missed out and wants to play, but you can use this thread to organise a parallel Risk game if you wish. I'm sure you could gather more players, and I'm happy to advertise it. Alternatively, just set up a separate thread and copy the same instructions
