Risk – type strategy game using Google Maps



This one caught my eye as I’ve spent many long hours playing different variations on the old strategy board game Risk. It appears that using Google Maps, a group has managed to write an API that let’s you Play Risk with Google maps as the backdrop.


It looks like for a future version their aiming for multiplayer support, currently the players would all have to be at one PC. It’s an interesting “trick”, I think it will be interesting to see what other Map based games can be Google-ized this way. Haven’t had a chance to play through yet, but maybe this weekend?
