Is there another boardgame on Earth that causes so such stress and arguments?
or at least, it used to in our household
we used to have fists over risk
it is a cruel mistress
code is up
i got stuff to do today, like get my dads birthday present for his birthday... today.
what a headache!
Twister with a really fat & clumsy person
so involving and so much potential for tactics and dastardly underhand plans.
I've been to Irkutsk, although not in a conquering sort of way.
but it has also caused so many arguments, strained friendships stc over the years.
we need more players
The game where you HAVE to make alliances and gang up on others and backstab just to have a chance of winning?
It's vicious. GRUDGE MATCH!
NO DICE, either. No luck at all, basically, barring which country you pick at the beginning:
me and melesmeles were talking about having a Diplomacy weekend one time, with the game going on non-stop over dinner and everything. we could even theme it like an old Congress or whatever they called them.
for breaking the longstanding New Zealand/Argentina alliance :(
Now that was a great game of Risk.
never understood it. just used to position all the pieces in some nice order across the world and then smash them against each other until we got bored.
- we didn't take it that seriously.
- we didn't have time to finish it properly, as we were getting ready to go out.
- apparently I won, although some people weren't around for all of it and had their moves made for them.
because it is his favourite game. i dont think i'm cut out for taking over the world
risk is amazing though.
