NAME ^

Games::Risk - classical 'risk' board game

VERSION ^

version 4.000

DESCRIPTION ^

Risk is a strategic turn-based board game. Players control armies, with which they attempt to capture territories from other players. The goal of the game is to control all the territories (conquer the world) through the elimination of the other players. Using area movement, Risk ignores realistic limitations, such as the vast size of the world, and the logistics of long campaigns.

This distribution implements a graphical interface for this game.

Games::Risk itself tracks everything needed for a risk game. It is also used as a heap for Games::Risk::Controller POE session.

METHODS ^

    Games::Risk->run;

Start the application, with an initial batch of @modules to build.

maps

    my @modules = Games::Risk->maps;

TODO ^

This is a work in progress. While there are steady improvements, here's a rough list (with no order implied whatsoever) of what you can expect in the future for Games::Risk:

However, the game is already totally playable by now: reinforcements, continent bonus, country cards, different artificial intelligences... Therefore, version 1.0.0 has been released with those basic requirements. Except new features soon!

BUGS ^

Please report any bugs or feature requests to bug-games-risk at rt.cpan.org, or through the web interface at http://rt.cpan.org/NoAuth/ReportBug.html?Queue=Games-Risk. I will be notified, and then you'll automatically be notified of progress on your bug as I make changes.

ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS ^

I definitely recommend you to buy a risk board game and play with friends, you'll have an exciting time - much more than with this poor electronic copy.
