2 comments on “. . . Playing Risk: Legacy

  1. I’m finally going to pick this one up. We’re planning a beach house vacation with some game-loving friends this summer, and I think that would be a great time to try it.

    Some questions:

    Did the Manglers make it to 15 games (or beyond)?

    Did each player keep the same faction from game to game?

    Any further insights two years later?

  2. Woot! This is one of my favorite games. And probably the only version of Risk I actually enjoy. Some answers:

    We did not make it to 15 games. One of the Manglers moved away and we haven’t played again, since it would involve changing the dynamics. Maybe it’s time to break it out again though. (Of course, now another Mangler has moved…)

    No, we chose factions each game. Part of the later games is that play starts asymmetrically, with players “bidding” for whether they want to choose faction first, or starting location, number of starting troops, etc.

    It’s been two years?! I’d say don’t rush to open the envelopes. I think there’s a chance for the end-game to be less interesting if you opened all the cool stuff early on. (Of course, there’s always that one envelope under the tray…)
