If you'd rather not read all that, just be sure that everyone plays ODIN.

The game can be free for all (preferred) or teams. You can also play with fewer than six players. Fill in the extra slots with Odin computers. They'll resign at the start.

The only problem I had was with purchasing god powers. Otherwise no problems.

Balance: 4
Game is very balanced, made very similarily to the orginal risk.

Creativity: 5
Wow. I couldn't have imagined this better than you made it. I am amazed at how you got around things that would be board game-only.

Map Design: 5
My only problem here was with the 'bridges' that were in between continents. I would have done it using transports and invisible walls.

Story/Instructions: 4
Instructions are a little hard to follow at first, but that was cleared up after I found the objectives banner.

Additional Comments:
I'll admit, I was a little skeptical at first, but WOW. This map is amazing. It is abundantly clear that you put a lot of time and effort into this. Could you possibly make this for Age of Empires III?
PurpleWorm Ah! I remember playtesting this. Definetly worth a download. Of the many RISK AOM versions I've played, this is one of the better ones, with an added creative touch.

I did not know there was another AoM Risk game. The one entitled Risk in the DL section has little in common with the board game and the creator even denied that they were similar (other than by name).

Just curious about where you found other ones because seeing how other designers did it would have saved me a lot of time figuring out mechanics and such.

OmegasRage I've seen a couple on ESO before, but never actually played them. But the hosts said they were like the board game. I can't play this but I wish I could.

Any amount of people could play this game and get a different game or the same game that's just as fun as the first time playing it.

Balance: 4.5
Nicely balanced with nothing that is to overpowered, but I did think that having the different types of barracks was a LITTLE bit unfair with seeing how one person might get stuck with 1 type of civilization that has only 2 choices of units initially, but all and all nice lay out.

Creativity: 4
So its not a BRAND NEW idea, but how this game is applied in AoM is awesome. To think outside the box is the key to board games in Strategy games.

Map Design: 5
Well giving it anything but a 5 is kinda unfair cause the map design was pretty much layed out before the game was made.

Story/Instructions: 4
Like mentioned before, the instructions were a bit confusing right off the get go, but simply after one round of the game anyone should be able to figure it out. I might suggest having a VERY QUICK cinematic about the games for complete n00bs to Risk, but I like the in game help messages.

Additional Comments:
DangerousMaster i think id prefer that you had invisible walls and that if you take a tc you take the dock so you can defend from sea or something rather than just linking it all but other than that it great
