This was the first war game that I remember playing and of course this is the first game that non-gamers talk about. this was the original game that I thought there has to be more games like this that could be even better! I mean its the original conquest game and it has its times to be played and enjoyed.
This is the game that got me to take board games seriously. I love the aspect of having to be able to fly under the radar until it's too late for the other players to stop you. Or setting up things just right so that it's in a player's best interest to attack someone else even though he knows you are winning. Another thing I enjoy is talking other players into courses of action that benefit me in the long run. Risk may be a massive dice-fest, but it's interesting to observe how little the luck of the dice affect the final outcome.
It is what introduced me to gaming, but it has stayed unplayed for a rather long time. _______ Played a two player game with a neutral player and chose capitols that could be taken over for instant victory. It was really quite fun, BUT SHORTEST GAME EVER. Earn some points Risk!
It's an okay game but too much dice rolling. We have a house rule that limits the amount of armies gained on turned in Risk cards in order to eliminate some dice rolling.
Risk, like most classic games, loses most of its appeal in light of new and better games. But I do not think that Risk is a bad game. I played many games as a teenager and I enjoyed every one of them. Now I would play almost any other game I own, but if Risk was the only option, I would not refuse to play.
Sentimental rating since I grew up with it and liked it lots. Seems limited in its gameplay now, but refreshed and definitely improved with the Reinvention's mission design. Onyx edition owned and the combined edition with Castle Risk
