There seems to constantly be more risk players than player slots, in addition, all the games are played on the US map.

I propose we start a game on the world map (though I'm open to being convinced to play on a europe map)

For cards, for now, all you get is names and a type. There are 42 provinces, and thus, 45 cards.

Fortunately, my pizza place decided to give out a free deck of cards a few years ago with every pizza, so I have a ton of playing cards. I'll be using these as the game cards until I can develop better "cards" and a better system for handing them out.

Dice will either be done though a random whatever, or, using real dice that I'm sure I have lying about somewhere.


The map will be me editing this

to add coloured boxes to indicate who has control over the territory. The final result will look a bit like this: http://www.totaldiplomacy.com/Portals/0/ArticleImages/Obama_Risk_Game.jpg

According to my research, the cards are not common. IE I've found pictures of a Scandinavia card with a Horse, a Cannon, and a Man. Some cards, however, are common. I've made a list of every picture of every risk card I can find and will fill in the blanks if/when the game starts up.

I'd be willing to play, though I signed up for the other game as well. I missed signing up for two games straight before the current one BK is hosting, so I think two at once is fair.

     I am up for it. I've never played Risk with other people, though I have played a number of games with the computer.

Lol, sure. I can do this when I get home tonight. Also, I'm down for a game if that's cool.

No?!?  Risk is essential for all teenagers to play with friends growing up.  Systematically taking over the world is so much better when you're annihilating the battalions of your friends younger brother you only needed in order to fill the last seat.
