Risk

I just noticed that Pogo has brought out the game Risk. This is a game that they have had out for a while I guess, though I didn't pay much attention. I know I should because you never know what is going to come out next.

Risk is a strategic game of war. It is a very popular game in my family as everyone loves to play it.

I haven't had the chance yet to play in on Pogo to see what it is like, though I think that is what I shall do this evening when the house work is done.

This is one of those games where being a mind reader would really come in handy when playing, though of course most of us aren't that lucky, so we all just have to carefully plan out the moves in our minds and hope that the moves we make are the correct ones that will allow you to win the game.

Re: Risk

Wow,I haven't heard of this game in years,I used to play it quite a bit when I was younger.

My sister and I used to play it a lot with our best friends Larry and Tina.We would bet all kinds of stuff and sometimes change when we had it on the game.

Our parents used to play each other in the game of Risk,and we watched them when we where growing up and then we all started playing.It was a reall fun way to all hang out and have a good time.

I am going to have to refresh my memory and go try it out.

Re: Risk

Once you see the board I am sure that it will all start coming back to you quickly. That how it was for me.

Good luck with the game and I am sure you will manage to win many times.

Re: Risk

I used to play this game to growing up. I liked it but a lot of people dont because you have to use your head a little more than with others. I used to play it with my brother. Im one of those people that likes a game with a little more challenge.


I will have to make sure that i go on pogo and give it a try. Hopefully it will be fun on there to. it will be good to play someone whose tricks you havent all figured out yet. Its been a little boring beating the same person over and over and I havent been able to play the game in a few years.

Re: Risk

I remember playing the game of risk with my buds at a boarding school back in the mid 70's.
There wasn't much to do in the summer, after working the 4 hours we were limited to by law, so we'd break out the board game of risk and try to conquer each others land.

Mind you, sometimes this game would go on for days before there was a winner, when there were five players.

After playing this game for a couple weeks, three of the players got bored of playing and stopped (it may have been because they were usually the first ones out).

My friend, the owner of the game, and I spent another two weeks or more battling each other and keeping score on who was the best.
I think we eventually quit playing after we both tallied 7 wins a piece.

Risk can be bought for around $30 online and probably the same in the big stores, if you want to try a hands-on approach with the game.
