I have a pristine Risk set. Its is a very good game. although I never get the chance to play it properly with more n just two players becasue its just me and my old man that will play once in a blue moon.
I love Risk. I would love to play more offten, but no one wants to play :( Funny story. When I was younger I took Risk to a family function so a group of us could play and stay out of the way. That's how we got to help at Thanksgiving, by staying out of the way.
Anyways, my cousins read the rules and I just played as my friends and I had been playing for many a years. Turned out, that over the years of playing we had adjusted or house rulled so many rules, that we where playing almost an entirely diffrent game.
I think there might be an play by play online risk game. We should find it and start a game over the net!!
I love playing Risk. About every three months my father, three brothers and I all decide to play. Usually two of us will quit so the others can use our pieces. There is so much strategy involved in it.
Used to love it, still love it and will allways love it. Need a strategy? While all the enemies fight between eachother, make your own bulk of an army in 1 or two full continents and once they are all diminished and spread out, strike into the heart of their empires and take them down one by one. Its awesome.
Risk is definitely my favorite board game, though I don't believe I've ever won, I guess I'm no master strategist. But it speaks volumes about how awesome the game is that I still consider to be my favorite even though I suck at it.
If you aren't good at making strategic decisions just take Australia and Southern China. Put all of your forces into the choke point and camp until other people get bored. Its a tedious strategy but hey you should win a game of risk once in your life!
