Risk. What is Risk?
Risk is a strategy board game created by Hasbro. It's a turn based game using dice to determine the outcome of battles. The goal of the game is world domination. Our game can be similar to Risk if you select the right game options.
Winning. How do I win?
There are a few different gametypes. In the typical deathmatch, which is the default gametype, it's similar to the Risk game, you have to dominate the world by taking over every enemy territory. In Capitals games there is one specific territory you have to take over and when you do all of the players territories will become your own.
Shop. Why don't I see any games?
If you don't see any games either you are not logged in, you haven't validated your email address, or it's because nobody has created one; so you should create one.

Tokens. What are tokens?
Every time you finish a game without missing any turns you receive 20 tokens. Tokens are used to purchase ranks, maps, game options and extra games. To see how many tokens you have you can click "Upgrades" in the user bar at the top of the page. Then you can see your token amount in the top right corner. If you refer a friend you can get up to 500 tokens. For more information on our Referral Program see: Referral program
Ranks. How do I get higher ranks?
To get higher ranks you need tokens and battle points. You can purchase ranks using your site tokens by clicking on "Upgrades" in the user bar at the top of the page. There you will also be able to see how many Battle Points you have and how many you need in order to purchase each rank.
Skill Points. What are skill points?
Skill Points are calculated depending on what the website thinks your skill is. More skill points are gained for winning against good players and having a higher tally than them. To view your tally's against other players simply click your username link in the top left of the page to view your profile. Then click "Standings". This will show you your tally against everyone else on the site. If you are below someone you do not lose any skill points, but you also don't gain any. If you are above someone and that person is above other people then you should gain skill points from them, unless they are below a lot of people.
A simple way to understand it is this: Win against good players and you will gain a lot of skill points, win against bad players and you won't gain any.
Premium. How do I play more than 5 games at a time?
If you've noticed we limit free users to only 5 games at a time, with an additional 2 games for 120 battle tokens each. The site costs money to maintain and we figure people who want to play more than 5 games at a time can help us pay the cost to maintain it. So we offer Premium Memberships for $25/year. So 1 year you pay $25 and your 5 game restriction will be taken away and you can play as many games at a time as you want. For more information click: Premium membership.
Dice. Why do I have such bad dice rolls?
Dice are random. That means they are impredictable and all sorts of outcomes are possible. Given enough games and dice rolls, everything that can happen, will happen. Eventually. To someone. Frustrating dice are part of this game, and it's a part of the strategy to deal with bad dice. If you like the dice to be more predictable, use the Balanced dice option (find out more).
Refresh. The game is not working. What do I do?

If it doesn't then ask a staff member who is online for help or write a post about it in the Suggestions/Feedback forum.
