1. Never attack with less than three troops. Four is the minimum amount you need to roll with three dice, meaning your best odds as an attacker. 2. Do not extend yourself to take a bonus unless you can defend it. I see it all the time. New players eager for some extra troops manage to cling to some continent, but then have weak defenses. 3. Another risk game strategy. Only make a few moves in the beginning. Winning a game of Risk is not done in the first round. It takes patience. Often new players will make several attacks in the first round, trying for a quick land grab. Even if they are successful, they become open to stronger predators in the area.

Landgrab is another older site but they have kept on innovating. While the interface is decent, the maps are mostly poor quality as anyone can upload anything, but there are some standouts.

The user interface is easy to learn and the maps are gorgeous, ranging from easy and familiar, to challenging and addictive. The community of players is active and strong with tournaments, clans, and a vibrant forum.

Dominating12.com can provide a lot of fun and drama, both on and off the playing field. It boasts many loyal fans, as well as it’s fair share of detractors.

Afterwind, now called atWar is not quite Risk but it shares some strategic similarities. I am including it here in case anyone wants to take a step beyond standard Risk gameplay. The interface and game can be a little daunting at first, given that its much more complicated than Risk, but if you stick with it, you can really get a satisfying strategic experience. The community is strong and the developer is active. It’s one to watch in the strategic space for sure.
Warlight is also new on the block and has brought some innovation to the table. The Silverlight based interface works well and everyone-at-once style of play can lead for some fast pace casual games. The community is small and maps are a bit of a letdown, but there is a decent experience here, especially in single player mode.
The old guard of online Risk, ConquerClub has been around for a long time. It’s built up a large audience and a lot of maps, but not much else. The gaming interface is cumbersome and outdated, and the maps are nothing special to look at. The site hasn’t seen a facelift since it started in 2006. It is not an easy site to navigate. The aging community is still strong, but out of control discussions about politics and religion plague the forums. The active users have been trending downward for months, but there is still some fun to be had here.
