    i asked ths question months ago, and got no, count 'em no replies... so i thought, now that ther're more satisfied visorites on this site, maybe someone can help me.

    is there out there, somewhere, anywhere, a palm os version of the old board game RISK? boy did i love that game, and i remember it translating really well to black and white computers (read: my old mac classic).

    anyway, if you know of something like this, pleeeeease lemme know.

    I've been looking for the same thing! I would love to be able to play RISK on my Visor! So far I haven't found anything. If someone has, please reply!

    Try conqueror, that looks like your type of game.

    okay, i've downloaded all three of these demo versions...

    hoser: what's up? pgeneral is nothing like risk... although it's a cool game - just not what lennon or i are looking for.

    biz: conqueror is a very basic risk clone, but the interface and design just look so dumb i can't bring myself to play it.

    jack: hexwar looks good, but it causes a fatal exception every time i try to run it... even with no hacks. have you gotten the demo to work ok on your visor? if so, how? if not, does the registered version work? i'm willing to buy without trying it if you can assure me its awesome.

    sorry matty,

    i heard 'risk type game' and saw PocketGeneral on PalmSpot recently and made the assumption...etc.

    once again, as the say goes, never make an assumption because you make an *** of u and mption.

    Matty,

    I'm a registered Hexwar user. I had no problem running either the demo or the full game on my Visor. I also recommend it. Try emailing the president of the company that makes Hexwar (Grogsoft):
    "Gregory Babineau" <babs@ix.netcom.com>
    and telling him about your problem. He answers his messages, although it might take a couple of days.

    Anyone remember "global wars" from the good ol' BBS days?

    No problem, but it's really easy. Click the 'http://' button above where you enter your reply, type the words in the pop-up box, click ok, paste the link into the next pop-up box, click OK.
