World at War is a PBEM based on the board game RISK, with slimmed down rules to accomidate e-mail play. The object of the game is to control all the countries on the game board by army accumulation and dice based battles.

World at War uses it's Facebook page to show up to date maps, but if you are not a facebook user you can e-mail me directly and all that will be sent by e-mail instead. (The purpose of the Facebook page was to simply limit the size of e-mails per turn.)

The dice based battle system is win/lose and depending on how many armies are on the attacking countries determines how many dice you roll.

The game end when one player controls all countries on the game board.
