## Welcome to Risk: America! II
* * *
Risk: America! is a risk game based in, you guessed it, the USA. The game was originally made on FGF by JaumeBG, although it had already been on other sites (hint: the site’s name rhymes with "more than").
Your goal is to conquer as many American territories (which are the counties) as possible. You also have to face other players in vicious territory combat. Who will win? That’s up for the players to decide.
* * *
Here is the [old thread](http://www.kongregate.com/forums/36-forum-games/topics/302607-risk-america), so you can kinda see what it’s like.
If you’ve noticed, my image is slightly different from Jaume’s. I’ve changed some rules and added some, so you should take a close look at my image. If you can’t read anything, don’t worry, as I’ll elaborate on everything in the next post. If you still have questions, feel free to ask.
### Rules and Gameplay
If you compare the old image with the new image, there are some similarities and differences. **Please read this section carefully!** I’ll start with stuff that’s the same.
* * *
#### Signing Up
First thing’s first. To sign up, state the following:
Name of your nation
Color of your nation
> *Originally posted by **[pika493](/forums/36/topics/302607?page=1#posts-6422608):***
> Firestar’s Kingdom
> Southern Florida.
Upon signing up, you are awarded 5 territories at the spot of your choice.
* * *
#### Game Beginning
When does the game begin? It begins when 5 out of the 20 territories are defined, and 5 players sign up. After that, the first day begins, and ends in 48 hours.
Although the game has started, more players can join the entire time. Obviously, this can only go up to 17.
* * *
For every 24 hours, you are awarded with 15 turns, in which you can expand and attack.
If you miss X turns, you will save 2/3 of them.
For example, if you missed today, you would have missed 15 turns. However, you can still redeem 10 of them.
If you missed 6 turns, you can redeem 4 of them.
If it’s a non-integer number, I’ll round.
* * *
To expand, just tell me you want to expand, and specify a direction.
The number of territories you expand varies. I will go on [random.org](http://random.org/) to generate a random number from 1 to 10000. From there, your territories are based on what the random number ends with.
If it ends with 00, 10, 20, 30, 40, or 50, you get 10 T.
If it ends with 60, 70, 80, or 90, you get 20 T.
If it ends with a strait (123, 234, etc.) or triples (111, 222, etc.), you get 50 T.
If it ends with 404, you get 80 T.
If it ends with a RS (1234, 2345, etc.) or quads (1111, 2222, etc.), you get 120 T.
If it ends with 493, you get 5 T plus an extra turn. (This one is new)
If it ends with none of the above, you get 3 T.
(I was going to add a 1337, but I ran out of room and was too lazy to create more.)
If you need help with your state geography, [here you go.](http://www.yourchildlearns.com/us_map.htm) (If you know the state abbreviations, you can use them, too.)
* * *
#### State Bonuses
What is the point of controlling an entire state? For certain states, you get extra territory. Extra territory will be added every 48 hours (2 days).
Texas: x2T (for a specific turn)
New York: +1T
* * *
If you have contact with another person, you can attack it and attempt to claim its territory! If a person loses all of its territories, said person is completely eliminated from the game.
How attacking will be "counted":
If you attack someone, I will roll a number from 1-100. 1-50 means the defending group wins, 51-100 means the offending group wins.
Before I roll, I’ll do a preroll. If the preroll number ends with any of the specified numbers above, in the "Expanding" heading, then you have an advantage.
For example, if preroll ends with 10, I will roll from 1-110.
If preroll ends with 60, I will roll from 1-120.
If preroll ends with 1234, I will roll from 1-220.
If this part confuses you, feel free to ask. If I explain it but you still don’t get it, don’t worry, as I’ll just calculate it myself.
* * *
Yes, you can make alliances with someone. Be warned, however, that alliances are not official, and the people can backstab you at any time.
Although alliances are allowed, point farming is not, which I’ll explain later.
* * *
### New Stuff
Pay attention to this section particularly.
* * *
#### Game Points
This is the major difference. I have added a new score system, which is about Game Points (GP). The GP you get can directly affect the winning outcome.
For every territory you claim, you earn 1 GP.
For every enemy territory you conquer, you earn 4 GP.
For every enemy player you eliminate, you earn 50 GP.
For every state you have complete control over, you earn X GP, which I’ll explain.
Since you earn 4 points per territory conquered, this creates a problem. If two people decide to team up and attack each other’s territory on purpose JUST to get points, that would be Point Farming, which I mentioned earlier. If I catch you or suspect you point farming, I’ll either not give you points or ban you from the game. Since this is a loose rule, I’ll try to be fair while judging. I’ll probably give you a warning first, though.
Also, for the last way to earn GP (special GP), it is based on the 2012 Electoral College. If you completely control a state, you are awarded with GP, but each state is different. If you control California, you earn 55. If you control Texas, you earn 38. [Not familiar with Electoral College?](http://usgovinfo.about.com/od/thepoliticalsystem/a/2012-Electoral-Votes-By-State.htm)
( **NOTE:** If you had complete control over a state, but lost the complete control, you LOSE the points you earn. Be careful and defensive!)
* * *
#### Ending and Winners
The game will end when…
- The map is completely filled up.
- There is only one player left.
- I decide to end it (the most notorious way).
For the first and third ways, the winner will be the one still alive with the most GP. For the second one, it will be (obviously) the last one standing.

**Q: So if someone starts in a state that gives you a bonus they get the bonus?**
A: That’d be impossible, since a state must be in their complete control. Although they have an advantage at getting these states, the "Bonus" states have a lot of counties to fill (for the most part), and so filling it up isn’t instantaneous. Plus, if a single county is left out, there’s no bonus.
Name of your nation: Apocalyptic Annihilation.
Color of your nation: Purple.
Starting place: Detroit, Michigan.

Wow, a lot of signs! Thanks, guys. I’ll update ASAP. :)

Every 48 hours, you get 2x the territory for a specific turn.
Also, Jaume already chose Purple, so you have to choose another color.

Well, that’d be impossible, because they need to fill up/control the entire state.

All nations have 5 GP.

> Ah, ok, that makes sense but that means they get a bonus quicker than everyone else.
Yes, they have an advantage. Generally, though, the "Bonus" states have a lot of counties to fill, so it won’t happen instantaneously. Plus, if a single county is left out, there is no bonus.

> Also can I ask what’s the name of my states and what are the states near to it.
Your state is Maine. To your west is New Hampshire. Near New Hampshire is Vermont (west) and Massachusetts (south).
