Day 318 – Risk – The Pink Army

Risk

Risk

My sister gave us Risk, the popular board game 2 years ago for Christmas. We never got to play it until now. Since none of us knew the rules we had to teach ourselves, but the rules are quite simple to understand: it’s all about world domination!

So Jose, his nephew, our friend Lupe and I started playing around 8pm on a Saturday night – and did not stop until 2am! Anyone who has played Risk before will understand why – this game truly takes forever… Even when we stopped we were far from being finished. Well, technically I was already “finished off”. My “Pink Army” lost its final territory in the Middle East around midnight and that meant game over for me. Picture #1 still shows my army still quite strong but after some strategic mistakes (shouldn’t have tried to go after Europe, but hey, I’m attached to it…) I only had one little army left in the Middle East (see picture #2). I was left in the game for “strategic reasons”, so to say as a buffer…

Well, one thing’s for sure, I am not a master in the wage of war. It may be my lack of testosterone that caused the short life of my armies. Nevertheless, a very fun game and I might give it another try, especially since Jose now seems to be addicted to it…
