Play Risk via Google Maps
8:19 AM | Marcus Albers | Comment on this story

An enterprising developer has implemented the classic board game Risk using the Google Maps API. Using the world map view from Google Maps, up to six users can attempt to take over the world in the classic strategy game.

Here's a bit from the GMRisk FAQ:

A For some reason I decided a bit after the API for Google Maps came out that it would be awesome to be able to play Risk on it. About a month later it became apparent that everyone using the API was doing it for more useful things, such as gas price tracking and ::cough:: hotornot placement. I've always been a gamer and thought this was the perfect step.
For those who haven't played Risk, there is also a link to the Risk FAQ on the page. Right now, GMRisk doesn't support AI players, so you will have to find a few friends and huddle around the screen to enjoy this new implementation of the classic game.

GMRisk v0.9.5
