How's this:

 

OT - Reddit CFB Risk Update 6/16: Welcome Home So yesterday we had a great night in the Midwest, and an alright night in New England. We took back all of Michigan, but lost some territories to a lucky Wisco in NE. We still hold Ohio State, but it’s now open to attack. We’ve taken some more Southern and Western territories, so we have a few different fronts to deal with.

 

Thereal benefit to tonight was that we are now #1 on the leaderboard! Of the top four spots, three belong to our alliance, and #1 is Michigan’s! If we can continue to build on that, we’ll be unstoppable by July 4th! I know we said it yesterday, but this is a critical night. We have a lot of fronts we have to deal with so we need as much participation as possible to to shore everything up. Right now we have 21 territories, and a few of them we’ve allowed Clemson to hold to help keep them safe for the night. We’re in a good spot, but we’ll need your support to help clean up our lines a little.

 

Forthe alliance as a whole, we’ve suffered some setbacks against Ohio and Wisco, but it’s nothing we can’t handle. If we can push red back, we can win this thing. The winner of our MgoContest (one random MVP who followed their website orders is selected to receive Mgoblog points) tonight was: AJs_Sandshrew

Do not ever attack any territory that is owned by one of our allies unless specifically told to do so in your orders. Our allies are Clemson, Florida, Georgia Tech, and Texas. If you get an order to attack an ally owned territory then it means we are coordinating with them, so it is acceptable. Otherwise, do not attack allied territories or defend territories that allies border please!

 

Make sure you aren't flagged as a bot One potential issue with the influx of new users we had is that some players may have been flagged as a bot and therefore their actions may not be counting.

Follow the link shown in the screenshot above and fill out the google form 2. Wait at least one day for the text box to disappear. If it does disappear, you are all set. 3.

Sorry everyone. Mods who have enough mgopoints to post these haven't been on yet today. We're trying to fill in but having trouble with formatting.

So I signed up to play, because I have little life, but it won't let me play!  I was told to attack Ohio, but there is no Ohio logo option in the defend or attack lists.  What to do?

Can’t believe it, but his Risk thing finally got me to join as a member....have been an avid mgoblog follower for the past maybe 5yrs!

Reddit Risk question. I’ve been playing since day 43 (6 rounds), but my status is showing ZERO rounds played. Have been following orders and my moves show up when I click the ‘0 turns played’ hyperlink!!  Reddit username: koochtx. What’s up?
