This holiday season features two intriguing new additions to the library of RISK games. The first is the release, by Hasbro, of RISK: Legacy. In this edition of the classic game, the rules of play evolve over the course of play and game balance and rules will differ on play 7 from what they were when you opened the box. This new version of the game has sparked some conversations through the gaming community, and I have to admit that the concept of choices made during one play of a game affecting later "fresh" plays of the game is an intriguing feature. Fortress AT has a good discussion of the game and its features. Tom Vasel gives a nice overview in the embedded video below.
The other intriguing RISK entry for this season is a SOLID SNAKE themed version of the game by USAopoly.
I am looking forward to both versions of the game, but which would top your Holiday shopping wishlist.
