• Feel free to share your most intense and fun Risk game. My favorite game was against my sister. She had controll of Asia and Australia and I had controll of North America and South America. Europe and Africa was being contested (we actually hardly ever attack over the Pacific ocean). I had most of my men in Greenland and hers were spread out over the edge of Asia. It was my turn, I conquered most of europe before I ran out of attacking men. She still had a good force in Asia. Unfortunately she had a reinforcement set for 12 armies. I wasn’t really worried until she put them on the board. Believe me, it wasn’t pretty for me. She finished conquering Africa and went on into South America (I had only 1 army in each territory). She went also and attacked Europe, slaughtering my puny army there. Well, the game went on to her winning and I coming into second place out of 4. Hope you liked my story.

    I haven’t played Risk in years. I’ve been curious about the Legacy version but I don’t know if I can get a group of folks willing to do that.

    I think it was back in the late 70’s/early 80’s when I played RISK for the last time. There had been only one edition and it came with three attacking dice and three defending dice. I have just read the rules of today’s editions and realized that it is more or less a different game nowadays. Interesting development, though.

  • Yeah, I have several classic risk games (hardly ever play them though). Some of them come with little minifigs, and one comes with cities. It’s hard to get my family to play.

    Good action Topmat. The bro and I played the same version Panther did. Sometimes we’d get a third. By the end of it we were using clay to make tanks, bombers, nuclear missles etc.

    Then went to avalon hill’s Russian Campaign. Played that for a few years before vice and women took over : )

    Well, getting off track now, but yea, had a lot of fun playing risk.

  • @Topmat We played the LOTR Risk for years. We had some great times. The game had strongholds, mountain ranges, ports, and rivers.

    +1 for LOTR risk. It was actually the game that then got me into A&A!
