    Came across this website, it allows for board games to be played either online or by e-mail (even has support for Linux). Kinda makes me want to have a board game night, something like Axis and Allies or Risk, it's got a ton of board games on it.

    I haven't seen Vassal in a long time, but last I checked it was a huge pain to configure... I can look into it more if we get some interest.

    Lava, are you the kind of person to sit in Australia doing nothing the whole game, or are you the kind of person to reinforce random territories at the beginning of the game, holding nothing but denying everyone else continents?

    Depends on the company...When I play games with my brother, I have to sit and hoard Australia. If I'm playing with my friends, I get fiesty :p

    I've always camped South America, easy hold and you can put a foot into two other continents to stop people from owning.

    Maybe :shifty, it can be easier to push North America depending on who's there

    The thing that always gets me about risk is that at least 1 player, maybe 2, are just fucked from the outset. Stuck in Asia or Europe? Lol prepare to have a bad game.

    That's the problem in a nutshell.
