A Few of My Favorite Things…
Posted on Monday, February 10th, 2014 by Kallie Eberling
Whenever I’m looking to have a fun low-key night in the dorms my favorite thing to do is to find a friend and play a game of Risk. Risk is probably my all time favorite board game. Even though I was only introduced to Risk a couple years ago, it has quickly become my first choice at game nights.
At home I have a Lord of the Rings edition of Risk which though is super awesome, it’s usually a lot more fun to play when you’re playing with people who know all the territories and are
somewhat VERY familiar with the territories (e.g.: The Shire, Gondor, Mordor etc.).
Since I only had this version of the game, and it was at home, a couple weeks ago a friend and I while at target decided to purchase the original game. We brought it back and surprisingly, you can play a player a game on Risk. This gives you a really awesome option. You can also play with up to six players or if you have more than that there’s always teams.
The strategies for Risk vary, but I usually like to try to take over and guard Oceania or Australia first and then slowly work my way up through Asia and so on and so forth. Anyway, if you ever want to try out Risk or need someone to play with I’d more than likely join you!
