New Risk Variant!

Over The Trenches Box Set Edition

Over the Trenches is a World War I era Risk (*1) Variant. Using the same game play mechanics and style of Hasbro's "Risk" strategy board game, players compete for domination of a WWI era world map. Players get bonus armies for collecting "Nations" rather than continents, and large bonuses if they can hold onto one of the great world Empires. Territory point values limit the number of troops in each territory and city territories add a bonus to the defender. The additional of naval sea zones and faster naval movement adds another dimension for army movement and player strategies. If you played Risk and like the basic game, but are looking for deeped strategic play, this is the game for you

2-4 players,  Compexity: Easy,  Play Time: 2-5 hours.

Includes 2 piece 17" x 44" full colr game map, approx 300 Plastic Infantrymen, D6, rule booklet, combat chart and more!

Game News: Updated on 11/06/2002

1) New site layout has been implemented. We often get questions about the company's various board games from our 1483 Online players (sort of why we host this FREE gaming site), so the new layout has been designed to show the 1483 Online community a bit more of the company's product range.

2) The Ongoing Games Pages have been updated. Several of the older games had been removed since they seem to have stalled and the tech games have been added.

3) The Big News! The Guild of Blades has brokered a deal with a computer game design firm for the production of the fully automated 1483 Online game. The Guild of Blades will be releasing two separate versions of this game, starting with the free version. The free version will implement mapping features similar to the current map displays and will allow players to play in the "standard 1483 Online mass player scenario". Later a for sale version of the game will be released that provides players an extremely easy point and click user interface, dynamic 3d projection globe of the game world, map editors, and the ability to select certain optional rules, set player limitations, and more. The for sale version shall be fully compatible with the free version and both version will still offer free game play.

4) --IMPORTANT- for new players. If you've just visiting the pages and are interested in playing, then visit the "Player Sign Up" pages and follow the instructions there. Make sure to sign up to the 1483 Update list at

5) New Games: Stan will be your moderator for the Competition Game. Now signing up players. Also, Game 5 will be ending shorty and a new Game 5 will be starting. Existing players are getting first shot at the new positions, but any new players should e-mail the Game 5 moderator to see if there any positions remaining.

6) The Guild of Blades Publishing Group has just releases the new Europe 1483 Box Set Edition. Visit the 1483 web pages at to place your order today.
