Mild spoilers below.
Risk Legacy is one hell of a good game. If you like Risk, find a copy of this and 4 friends that can commit to playing the game through to the end. Shit, you don’t even have to know them that well, I only met Mark and Laura once before playing this game, now they’re among my best friends.
There are 15 times you can play this game; we started last May and finished tonight. Going into tonight there was a 4-way time for 1st with Matt, Laura, Mark, and Jeff with 3 games a piece, and I had 2 wins under my belt. If I won there would have been a 5-way tie for first forcing another game to determine who would name the world. I was the red cannon dudes, the faction known as Die Mechaniker, and with 3 death-balls I was in a great position to strike and win. However, Matt (orange, moved north through Europe, and Jeff made some moves but I was able to stop him, and then Laura waltzed across the Bering Strait, virtually unchallenged, and took Greenland for the win.
Having won the most of the 15 games she had the honour of naming the world. She named chose “Friendship town.”
To put that in perspective I left some of the least offensive names for you to see, Frost Expands (Frost is Jeff & Deanne’s fluffy cat), Bonerton, and Moscock. If you win a game you can name a city or a country and you can imagine what the rest of the names were like if these were the least offensive, haha. Christ, one of the continents was named simply with a drawing of a penis.
This game easily had the craziest moments in our gaming experience, both surprises from the game and in how we played. I HIGHLY recommend this game, but what made it so awesome was having the same 5 friends play every game together.
