    I can vouch for Kansas--some of my relatives play it.

    I'd support the board game theme above the specifically Risk theme. Though I'll admit that several of the Conquer Club maps are very clever, even if they are the same ol' game.

    I've been entertaining the notion of designing a variant of Pandemic using Christian missions as a theme. Virtually every Christian-themed board game currently available is just a knock-off of another popular game. (Settlers of Canaan: Really? Surely Catan is inoffensive enough not to require "sanitizing.")

    Anyway, if you're not familiar with Pandemic, look it up on BoardGameGeek.com. The concept is very interesting, and by all accounts it's quite a fun game. I hope to add it to my collection soon.

    I voted yes to a GAME map, not excusively a Risk map. I would not be disappointed if there were Risk boards entered, but IMO it should not just Risk.

    As with others, voted yes with the understanding it's a board game map, not a risk map.

    Wow... that seems like so very long ago...

    EDIT: We play Euchre here in the Sacramento, CA area. Well, by we I mean other people.

    This would be a very good challenge, be it Risk or any board game...

    However, would it be "any board game", I guess I would give a try to a "Ticket to Ride" map... I love that game...

    YES! It is absolutely a wonderful game. I would love to see a TtR map of all sorts of places.

    I'd probably make a powergrid board.

    (We were playing Funkenschlag - EnBW Edition on Monday night... It was a 4 way tie with 15 cities powered, and I came in second with the cash on hand tie-break rule)...

    That just gave me a crazy idea. What about Ticket to Ride: Venus? Base it on Toff's public transit map.
