    Heh think your right about nobody from 50 miles away having heard of it, cause i think i live somewhere over 50 miles away from u, and ive never heard of it

    Sounds alot like a mix of Spades and 500 to me though

    I think this would be a great idea especially as we seem to have a lot of the 'Risk' Community members here.

    Post I do like some board games

    While I hate Risk, there are some Risk-like games that are OK.

    Axis and Allies is alright, Red Storm Rising is way too complicated, Fortress America is kind of stupid, but can work, Shogun is an awesome game, and not because of the Japanese flavor, so much as a general (daimyo) gets extra movement for each battle he wins and is not killed, there's a ninja to bid for allowing for daimyo assasinations and more. Its quite a cool game, actually.

    I've played Diplomacy, which has more economics built into, but otherwise is pretty much Risk.

    How about Fantasy Clue - Professor Plum was killed by a Fireball in the Thaumaturgy Chamber!

    Post Titanic Risk!

    Seriously though, here's a board game idea, could be like Risk, called Titanic.

    Your army or pieces are members of either the crew, first class, second class, third class, or stowage class, and you're racing to the limited number of life boats before the ship goes to the bottom of the Atlantic. Idea has merit and I just thought it up in the last five minutes... hmmm.

    How about suggesting that the board game map be of your own neighborhood? That way you can include bits that aren't commonly known and we might end up with an interesting view of our membership.

    I am totally for a risk map. I love risk type games though (I have conquest on my computer). I think it should be a map of anything you want, just cut up and stylized to look like a military warfare board game (risk, axis & allies, etc).

    Or it could just be any board game, or even one of your own invention

    I had a great idea yesterday for a parchment map of the revolutionary war with little boat figurines to represent the english/french boats, but alas, i couldn't figure out a way

    oops, just threadjacked my own thread...

    Well sure, if you can think of any boardgames outside of the military ones that involve maps. After all it still should be a map.

    If this goes I think I'd like to try something obscure to map like Pictionary or Trivial Pursuit, although Chutes and Ladders might be fun.
