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!

Pogo will never do that. The game has been around for ages and most people have learned to change their game settings. As a new member, you might want to try it. Save you a lot of grief.

The issue is because it is allowed, some players consider it part of the game. I has seen certain players hop to all empty seats in succession and there answer was "The game allows it, so I am not cheating". Until POGO shuts off the ability upfront upon the game loading there is no way to stop it. I would think it would be as easy as turning off the feature, if players want to jump seats they can go into the chat rooms and turn it on. This is my 2 cents for what it is worth.

Screenshots can be altered, which means they will not be accepted as proof.
You must use the in game "Report Abuse" option if you think a player is violating the Terms of Service.
Click on the player's screen name in the Who's Here list and select "Report Abuse."

Do not click the Play with People/Play with the Bots buttons. Select your Room from the Chat Rooms list first. Then from the Table Select pop up, pick an empty table and from that Options pop up uncheck the box to allow players to join after the game has started. You can also uncheck Allow player to watch game.

There IS someway to stop it. Set your table up to not allow players to join after the game has started. Really simple.

If you do not want that to happen, then play in a game with
just the robots, like I do, if I play the game.
or play with friends you trust will not do what you are describing.

It is not necessary to keep refreshing. You can simply select a Chat Room and then you can find a Table with other people. Much easier.
