Okay, so I am thinking of starting up a game of risk over the internet, and I would moderate it. Basically, I would come up with a map, and everything would be hockey/hab realated. It won't be complicated, just 30-50 territories. It might be somewhat complicated to make,and it would take a lot of effort, so before i put any work in it, I need to know if anybody would actually be intersted. I would need 4-7 people, 6 players and 1 neutral volunteer to say, no pp isn't cheating.

I would post rules, map, etc later, if anyone was intersted.

well, i could still use imaging software to make board/pieces, or i could download a chess game. getting it to go quickly would be the issue, but people coul pm me with moves and i could moderate and move pieces. unless everyone is on at the same time, then it won't work well unless we get some other way to do it.

the easy alternative would be to find an online chess thing and coordinate times to get on, but that would require memberships, etc

Ya...we'd have to get people to join, and then schedule games via PM. Then we could post the results on the board. You could take half of the games, and I could take half, and get 16 people in total. We could create it like a tournament, leading up with one winner. They could PM their moves to either one of us, and we would forward the moves to the other person in the game. What do you think? Too much work?

If you can give up the Habs theme, you can play risk for free on conquerclub.com without having to do all that work...

(if checking out the link on April 1, disregard the pink and the 'cutesy club' stuff :P )

They have all kinds of crazy maps (no Habs maps, but there is a Montreal map). The original 'classic' map had to have the image changed for fear of copyright infringement, and some of the terms are different (ie 'spoils' instead of 'cards', 'fortification' instead of 'reinforcement'). There are different game options to choose from - team games, assassin games (where you only want to take out your target), cards vs no cards, etc. And one of the options I quite like is the fog of war, which means you can only see armies in territories adjacent to yours.

The 'casual' games give each player 24 hours to make their move, and once their turn is started, they have an hour to finish it. It doesn't require everyone to be online at the same time, but depending on how quick people are with their turns, the games can take several weeks (I had one go on for months). You get an email notification when it's your turn, and if you miss three turns you get booted from the game.

Members with free accounts cannot set up private games (players need a password to join it), but if people are interested, I have a full account and can set up a game once the game options are decided upon.
