Dice Wars

There are lots of nifty flash games to be found at but the one to go for is Dice Wars. An abstract version of Risk with random topography, the rules will become obvious after one or two turns but the strategy is a lot more subtle. You have to strike a balance between capturing territory to gain extra reinforcement dice and building defensive lines to minimise the danger of large swathes of your ground being captured by the enemy. Once you have won a game, click on the 'history' button to see an instant replay of the whole game. I have also managed to get it working on the flash player on my iPaq - I may never do any work ever again ...
