I have no idea who my first game was against and it will remain a mystery unless someone can tell be a better way of finding it other than going back through my game history one page at a time. :?

My first game.....two weeks ago! Okay I know its not the same as for you guys but I think it shows that its harder to do well in your first few games now. Or that I need to learn quicker,

Why is this? Is it because the name "United Kingdom" omits the Republic of Ireland which is there on the map? But the name "Great Britain and Eire" misses out Northern Ireland.

These would do it:

1. The British Isles
2. United Kingdom and Eire
3. Britain and Ireland

Ah this brings back memories, It also reminds me that I used to think that "Johnny Cleveland" and "jOnNiE" were the same player, so I used to always greet the latter with "hey JC" - now I feel silly!

My first recorded game:

I just remember for months getting my rectum handed to me by Sid, Smedz, Para, Kurtz, Xray and Toddly, the whole time wondering what all those numbers at the end meant...

My first game ever: http://sillysoft.net/lux/rankings/game/381757

I played solo for about a week, destroying any and all bot comers, thinking I was pretty hot stuff. Then I jumped online and joined something called Classic part deux. It was a massacre and I thought to myself, "What the F is this stupid map?" Then I left and joined a classic room. Didn't go back to Duex for quite a while.

The whole RAW thing confused me for quite a while too, I just ignored all the numbers until someone explained to me what was going on one sunday.

I actually remember that game clearly - Kef had 3 cards, the Nef in 6th place had 1. Kef hit her for the card, then saw he had 4 cards and suicided himself. :P

rip vanished in October 04 but he left a remarkable link:

redacted (link no longer available)

There you'll find data of "The Faringdon Risk League". rip obviously played risk for years with some guys in this league.

Very amusing are the hints for possible noobs "Read this first: don't say we didn't warn you." Some excerpts:

"Once everyone is sat at the table and the beers have been tested, each player rolls a dice to determine who goes first."

"Rule One: Do Not Get In The Way"
"Rule Two: Do not expect to hold a border country with less than four defending armies"
"For the first time player, the absolute first thing to remember is: Rule Three: Do Not Overextend Yourself, Especially Early On."

Maybe he left since his online-risk skills weren't outstanding (20% winning).
No, I left because my (now-)ex wife got a job with the UN Environment Program and we moved to Nairobi.

You missed the best line -- How can you tell if a Risk player is lying? Their lips are moving.
