Growing up we were always a risk family...we would get together as a family for games...once a month and play Risk...1-3 games a night depending on how long they lasted. So when a buddy of mine pointed out a free online site that lets you play risk, I was very interested.

http://www.conquerclub.com/

Is the website. If anyone is interested, tonight at midnight we are going to try to get a bunch of otaku together for a game of Risk. Let me know if you plan on joining us as when we create the game we have to choose the number of players and we can't alter it. So please don't say you're going to show and no show as we'd like to keep this an otaku only game.

Still if you can't make tonight I'd be more than happy to throw down a game with people sometime. FlyingElf is my username on the site if you'd like to friend me.

I'd be game, but Risk games last FOREVER!

There is no way! I remember my brother and I spending DAYS on one game. We never did like each other too much, after a game of Risk we hated each other.

Well we would be playing for like 6 hours...We typically played a style we like to call assassin's. Its where at the beginning of the game every player gets a secret card with a color on it. Your mission for that game was to kill the color you got. If someone got their own we just redrew. If you killed your target, you won.

But yeah, this site is designed for the casual player. You have 24 hours in which to take your turn, so you really only have to check it once a day.

Honestly I haven't thoroughly looked over all the maps, but I didn't see anything that looked like 2210. I've only played a few maps, but I really like The Great Lakes and Feudal War. I'd like to try out the poker map sometime...

Its just big...a lot of people seem to like it though...I would imagine it makes for some pretty long and epic battles though.

Yeah, I posted them above, haha.

Feudal War is a lot of fun and I'm really enjoy The Great Lakes game I'm in right now, but that could be cause I'm just absolutely killing that game. Probably have it wrapped up in the next couple of turns minus some epicly bad luck on dice rolling.

Only played a few games on the site so far...Still fairly new to me as well...And half of those games have been on the classic map which is well...classic...

You should be able to do a search for my username and find all games with me in it. FlyingElf

You won't be able to see much on my Great Lakes game though as Fog of War is on. You can track my classic game though or check out the Feudal game I just won, haha.

I took a lot of bad beats in austrailia though and got kicked out. Like I dropped my entire set, assaulted with 15 guys against 4 and was left with a border of 3 guys to defend...12-4 on offense is a brutal loss...Then the 3rd guy came in with his set and sweeped through.

Also, no word on the game starting tonight...I'll let you guys know if we reschedule for those interested in joining us.

::le sigh:: Yup. Spanked me pretty solid. I had to just surrender--losing so slowly and inevitably was like watching yourself die of incurable cancer or something.

We haven't yet. Communication broke down and we ended up not starting a game last night. I'll let you know next time we plan to. Hell if nothing else I may just organize it. I'll give it a couple days and if I don't hear from the guy who was going to, I will.

And Knives, whats your name on the site? Don't think you posted it.

As for Poxnora, its the kind of game I would enjoy if it wasn't so lame as a free user. Only use prebuilt armies and just get decimated against anyone who customized theirs. Plus I like customizing my own...being forced to use premades is a big turn off for me...

nah I don't think it sends you any kind of message when you friend someone...at least I didn't get anything.

Btw, finish up one of your games quickly Knives. Can only be in 4 games at once as a free member.

nah, don't drop one. You can't really quit out of a game anyway.

I'll let you know when we figure out when to start one or I'll just start one up in the next couple of days.

Actually don't bother throwing anything Knives. I don't think I'm going to start the game until after Youma. I know that the hotel doesn't have free wifi so I probably won't be able to take my turns.

Well I'd keep a spot open. Sorry. Just the more I thought about it, the more I thought it would be better to wait until after Youma.
