Maybe all of the online Risk sites should form an affiliation?

You know a group to cross promote and even create cross site tournaments. My version of Risk was just released yesterday. :)





You might have heard about it before. Ten years ago, I played here on Conquer Club.

How can you ask people to pay premium on a site looking like that?

Actually, I couldn't care less if people pay Premium. I don't need the money. I get paid a lot of money to do other programming.

The Premium mechanism really is just a weeding tool to keep out the players who would destroy the game by creating too many games, and generally just being annoying.

You think Conquer Club is about money? This site doesn't make much money. Lux Delux doesn't make much money. Selling the game of Risk to people doesn't make much money.

And actually I much prefer the aesthetics of the website design of my site to Conquer Club. Conquer Club is great a great site. I admire the dedication of the users. But the site really is stuck in 1995. It's dang ugly.


The game was modeled after the Steam Client, which is kind of dark, but the simple aesthetics are cool.

You're talking like I've been praising Conquer Club. Believe me I'm one of the last people that's about to do that. But as soon as I go onto your website I see poor image quality. Like horrendously poor. That's without actually looking at it from a technical design perspective. You're a programmer, not a designer. It's understandable.

Myself personally having played over 22,000 games find myself quickly loosing interest. Last week I was down to 2 active games, when for the last 11 years I have always had 50+ going.

I have zero waiting games, because they never fill anyway. Finishing up a few auto tournaments and clan commitments then we will see.
