Risk under Virtual PC 2007

Risk under Virtual PC 2007

  • Comments 3

Released in 1989, this was the first "official" computer version of Risk.  As such it goes a long way to try and replicate the board game in as much detail as possible.  It even goes as far as allowing you to pick whether you are playing with the US rules or the UK rules.  Having said that - I personally find the interface to be a little clunky and have many "non-official" computer risk games that I prefer.  But the game runs well under Virtual PC and is a good "risk fix" if you are jonesing for one:

Now, if you have never played Risk before, I am not going to attempt to explain the game to you - but you can read all about it here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Risk_(game)

Cheers,
Ben

  • May it is not right place, but are there any news/plans/roadmaps/etc about future of Virtual PC as a virtualization software for desktop OSes and personal (not corporate) use?

  • That better be a licensed version of Risk... :-)

    I'm on Conquest fan myself.
