    My family used to play this game once a week when I was nine years old. The way you're supposed to play it, after all of the territories have been selected, you take turns placing one army at a time onto various countries. However, my dad and I -- the strong, upstanding, moral guys we were -- would always excuse ourselves to "go to the bathroom," or "make a phone call," or "grab a drink" while Mom & my sister placed all of their armies on the board. We'd come back, find the weaknesses, and put our armies out to attack them. Hey, I never claimed to be a fair fighter. I wanted to win. Badly. Anyway, if you play this game fairly, it's a lot of fun. Teaches a lot about geography, the element of chance, and of course, it comes with dice so that you can get that game of craps going with your buddies. But I digress...

    I've never played this game but I've heard really good things about it. Compete against your friends in this military strategy game.

    The reimagined Risk board game. I wish I had more time and companions to play these sort of analog games with.
