I am glad to announce the release of Risk Map Editor. You can now use this tool, to make Risk maps to illustrate your games for other players. The tool lets you create a map, place armies, arrows and notes and generate an image which you can later attach to your forum posts.

Ehsan, this sounds exciting. Unfortunately it is that time of the year when universities start, so I am super-busy. I will get back to this as soon as I can.

Keep up the good work

This is a great tool t use. I have posted several maps on your forum and they are picking up some comments. A suggestion for these comments on your article section: allow the stats for the forum and other sections to be integrated as this seems to add additional incentive for people to post. People like to see their comments recognized in some way, and the ranking system you have for the forum is nice way to do that. Allow all comments from either the forum section, the articles you post or the scenarios you post to be tracked by the stats.

Your map editor is really nice. The only thing I would like to see is the different layers that you allow (for arrows and comments on the map) to be visualized before they are posted will allow the user to select the best format before they post. Editing the post seems to work but is a bit awkard and some people don't know this is an option.

About the Author

I am a board game and Risk game enthusiast. I like thinking and talking about strategy in games which has led me to the creation of this website. Although Risk is a classic, I feel one can never get tired of playing this game. Read about what I think of the game and I am always eager to know what you think.

Any fool can make things bigger, more complex, and more violent. It takes a touch of genius-and a lot of courage-to move in the opposite direction.
