Mark, Meiyen, Rachel and I tried playing the new Risk board game last weekend. It took us quite a while to start playing the game proper as we were having difficulty with the revised rules for the new edition.
Unlike the new Monopoly Deal Card Game which is suitable for casual board game players like us, the new Risk requires much more strategising and thinking.
We tried playing it for one round, but gave up halfway when we realised it will probably take at least an estimated hour before we can finish one game. The game rules were quite complex and it did not help that we were tired (also, the ladies were winning the game out of sheer luck with the dices and Mark and I, being typical male chauvinists when it comes to competitive games, decided to put a stop to it by ending the game prematurely).
The game is probably more suitable for serious board game players. Having said that, we did appreciate the updated look and feel for the new playing board and game pieces. 🙂
