    A few years ago I used to play a game in the Minecraft Forums called Forum Risk. It was a really fun game, and for a few months it became its own genre within the Forum Games section.

    This CFC version will use the ruleset from the Conquer the World version, because I'm not really a fan of the way the original ruleset is presented.

    What country you play for:

    Pick any country you want. You have to stick with it until it is conquered.

    If many people pick a country, they will get less attacks.

    How do I attack?

    Make a post saying which country you are and who you want to attack. There must be a border if attacking by land, or if you attack by sea, you don't cross any other countries sea.

    You can only attack once per update.

    I.e. Poland attacks Germany.

    How do I know how many attacks I have?:

    Quote your post. The last digit on your post number is the number of territories you gain in your attack. Also, the number of territories you dominate counts. You add a tenth of your current territories, rounded down.

    Italy attacks France. Post ends in 6. Italy has 40~ territories. 6+40/10= 10 territories for Italy.

    The more active players, the less territories the country gets. For example:

    Italy has 4 active players. 10 x 0,8 = 8* territories.

    *It is always rounded up.

    Players - Multiplier

    1 1
    2 1
    3 0,9
    4 0,8
    5 0,7
    6 0,6


    Can I specify my attack more?

    Yes. You can say Malta attacks Crete.
    Also, you can attack one country and then attack another one.
    For example:

    Serbia attacks Kosovo and then Bulgaria, taking 7 territories. However Kosovo has only 2, so 5 go to Bulgaria.

    If a second country is not specified, the attacks get lost.


    Can we have alliances?

    You can make ceasefires. One player for a country says that he wants a ceasefire with another. If the other player agrees, then there it's done. You can move max. 10 territories through the allied country. To make one, there must be a common border or the shores must be close.

    To break it, simply attack the country. You will have to confirm the decision by the next update. New players will have to receive approval from older players in the same country as to avoid having new people screwing around with long-established ceasefires.

    A country can only have a maximum of 2 ceasefires.

    Map:



    *removed a colorful slur in the image.

    Other:

    I expect this to be a quick game, so depending on how many players there are, I will try to bring updates on a frequent (two or three times a week, or more if there is going to be that active) basis. Other than that, updates will come at a random time during the day with no orders lock.

    As a friendly note; these kind of games nowadays tend to go in the Imperium Offtopicum subforum, which was split off from general forum games a few years ago and covers exactly this sort of thing. You'll probably have better luck reposting (or asking a moderator to move) this thread there. Certainly there are more people posting there. :p

    Looks interesting, I enjoy a game of RISK.

    So I specify a Country and an attack at the same time to start? If so I'll play as the UK and attack Ireland.

    It is about time Denmark was reunited with Sweden... send a Swedish force to ensure the Danish join us while our other forces deal with Finnish resistance.

    Italia's victories shouldn't stop here. Continue our glorious conquest of Croatia, and then Bosnia and Montenegro if we can.

    Rome's glorious Legions subjugated the Dalmatae once. What's stopping us from doing it again?
