Nothing says fun like attacking your friends in a 6 hour game of Risk! Talk about a test in geek mettle.
Our early on set-up. It’s hard to see but my black armies are in the back with one hell of a stronghold in Australia.
A ‘real time’ look at our defeats and Nate’s triumphant victory! Haha, the depleting sunlight is a good marker of time.
Some of the Risk puns made:
I: It’s time to take… RISKS! I want to have a Risk game at my place next weekend.
G: This sounds like a perfect time to occupy your territory.
E: Euphrates cats are gonna run for the border.
G: I guess I’ll see Ural then.
I: I can’t wait to blast you with my cannon.
Ah, my favorite puns are the dirty ones but in consideration of any delicate/tasteful readers, I will refrain from repeating what I thought of. Same with the boys’ politically incorrect jokes- though they made me laugh and laugh.
I am useless at Risk! I just can’t bear abandon ANY territory, no matter how small and un-strategically-useful it may be! i feel sorry for my guys, you know? They’ve been there, on the front line, slogging away, I can’t just break their hearts and order them to retreat!
I feel bad for the armies stationed in isolated countries too… I’m also guilty of picking countries for sentimental reasons over strategic ones and taking attacks personally. It’s only through dumb luck that I aaalmost reached the end!
Ha ha, glad I’m not the only one! Happy Thanksgiving :)
