Over the past Winter Break, I taught myself Flash thanks to a video training series from Lynda.com (which I highly recommend). I didn’t get all the way through the series actually — I got up to the point where the instructor teaches you how to make a Memory game. Needless to say, it was a fairly simple example and I wasn’t feeling very satisfied after expanding my Memory game beyond the example.
The result of my messing around is a hopefully fully functional Risk game. There is no AI implemented, but it supports multiple players. Also, the nature of the programmatic dice rolling should cut a lot of time from the game, making it possible to play a round with 6 players in around 45 minutes.
