RISK: Legacy

“NOTE: What’s done can never be undone.”

Husband is a huge gamer geek.  As in, he loves playing all games, ever.  Video games, board games… Dungeons and Dragons, Pandemic, Cards Against Humanity.. And Risk.

THIS, however, is RISK LEGACY. Imagine Risk: taking over countries, conquering players with your armies, ruling the world.. You know, super villain stuff.

This version of Risk, however, is unique. Why, my lovelies? For the simple reason that the board actually changes, PERMANENTLY. Oh, and you can only play the game a total of 15 times.  Meaning, after 15 times of playing (if you haven’t nuked the world) you can never play it again. So, you sign it and frame it and keep it as a memento of that time you conquered the world.

“NOTE: What’s done can never be undone.”

It’s like real-life! Countries can be destroyed or altered, factions eliminated or overtake countries, and players can earn special powers/bonuses/rule-breaking things.

***SPOILERS AHEAD!

Do not read past round 1 if you do not wish to find out what happens when you use three missiles!! 

Round 1: Saturday, 3:23pm. 97* F.

P1020180

An empty board, ready for conquering.

P1020176

Cards can be destroyed. And not thrown into a discard pile to be reused next time. ACTUALLY RIPPED UP. THROWN AWAY. It feels so wrong to destroy it!

P1020182

One of the factions.  Those colorful brackets can be filled in with stickers of various powers or conditions.

Special cards. These can only be opened under certain circumstances.  There is also a DO NOT OPEN. EVER. card pack. Wonder what’s in it? James, on principle, refuses to open it.

P1020191

Round 2: Sunday, 2:34pm. 95* F.

P1020377

In Africa, you can see a Scar sticker, which postulates that Defender gets -1 on dice rolls.

P1020375Players are given a missile, which can be used to nuke an invader, thus preventing that player from overtaking a country.

P1020356P1020355P1020354P1020353P1020352P1020351

Trump Tower exists! D:

P1020350P1020349

This country was officially renamed “Nacho” in the last game.

P1020374South Africa was renamed “Cheese”. Husband thinks he’s funny.

Fueled by pizza! Also, my beggar dog named Emily.

P1020378P1020379P1020380P1020381P1020382

When you use three missiles in one combat move….P1020384

MUTANTS RISE UP! It’s a new faction! (but still only 5 players max)

Hey, I warned you about reading this far. If you did, it’s your own fault.P1020385

Oh and….P1020386

By deploying 30+ troops AND have a missile, you can summon aliens and are henceforth known as the Alien Collaborator.

P1020388

Ghghsdffbbbbbtjdffjhdburgle!

P1020389P1020390P1020393

And this is why I said the board literally changes.

P1020394

These are Scar Cards from opening packs after a certain action (I.E., nuking a country).

P1020395

SOUTHERN EUROPE IS NOW RADIOACTIVE 0_O You “lose half your troops when you enter, and lose one troop at the end of each turn if you hold that territory”.

Round 3: Saturday, 4:17pm. 87* F.

SUPREME SPOILERS AHEAD! WARNING! Hey, I warned you.  So I pretty much stayed out of this game and totally napped on the couch while everyone plotted everyone else’s demise.

But I did perk up momentarily for a momentous moment in the momentum.***

***Mmmmmmmmmm….See below.
