I propose putting more armies in Canada/Mexico. Or maybe just Mexico; the Canadian navy supposedly has just two rowboats so taking over shouldn't be that difficult.

One of their rowboats is being repaired. It sustained heavy damage when it was attacked by some irate polar bear who was mad at Canada for not convincing the US to do something about global warming.

How about Secret Capital RISK, as you jokingly proposed earlier?  Where you only learn your opponents' capitals when you conquer them?

It would be like Risk + Stratego Smiley

Well I guess it's an option worth considering.  Perhaps once the regular Capital version has become exhausted, we could try that variant for a while. Smiley

I'll suggest the following:

1.Remove Mexico and Canada as options
2.Only 5 people per game so that each can start with an equal ten states.

Otherwise, great job Grin

I prefer keeping Canada and Mexico in the game, and am very satisfied with the way it has been run.  Thank you, Joe!

This may become an option once it becomes difficult to find players willing to play.  Until then, I'm inclined to open each game to the maximum of six players.

I may do an occasional alternative continent such as Africa or Europe in the future, perhaps after one of the USA variants has run its course.

Yay!!!!

As you've probably already seen, I've started a poll on the Canada and Mexico issue.  Please head over there and vote in it. Smiley

So it's been decided that Canada and Mexico will no longer be a feature.  Goodbye to them.

Also, based on feedback here, I've reduced the number of initial battalions from 30 to 25, and I've also adjusted the values of the regions as well.

I'm still mulling over a possible battalion limit for states at any given time, and may well create a poll on it in future.

Neither do I; the entire fun of the game is stockpiling like 20 guys on one single state and then steamrolling over the countryside.

Maybe giving preference to people who have never participated before (now this has nothing to do with ME. It would be far from mind to suggest things that would primarily benefit ME.)





Ok, I really want to play but I always miss my chance. Sad

This was always the case until the last time, when only two people signed up.  See this post for how it was supposed to work last time, and for an idea of how it's worked every time before then.

What do you guys think of the charming yet wholly redundant and inaccurate compass featured in the new map? Smiley

BTW, given that Canada and Mexico are now officially no longer involved, my comments on the regional reinforcements should be revised. The following take into consideration, primarily, the number of states per region and the number of those states that border elsewhere.

Pacific - 2
Southwest - 4
Plains - 5
South - 3
Midwest - 5
Southeast - 3
Mid-Atlantic - 3
New England - 2

It has my full support. Smiley

Agreed, but I think Joe's already pointed out that this is unlikely.

Taken into consideration. Smiley  I'll keep it as it is currently for another game or two, but in the mean time, what do others think about this?

I think the Pacific should be good for a billion reinforcements because it's just that great a place.

I've been casually working on one, actually.  Little progress so far, but it's certainly in the works already. Smiley

Probably have to get rid of some of the tiny countries.  Which reminds me, why don't you just use a world map ala real Risk?
