I got a fun deluxe version of Risk from a neighbor at a garage sale a few years ago.
It’s a game I know can drag and get to be a bit of a stalemate.
But, not tonight.
It was actually my wife’s first Risk game ever. And she destroyed me.
I probably used too many armies to try to save Australia.
And she did a great job of making East Africa hard to win.
I did get South America early, but she was able to control Asia. After that it was game over.
So much more fun to play with actual pieces and the neutral white color made the game interesting for 2 players.
I look forward to playing again.
Hopefully, it will be a closer game.
