    Post Create a Risk Style Map

    I got to thinking last night, and people here make alot of different types of maps, but other than the people here from Conquer Club, I havent seen a risk style map. How about a challenge where you have to make a risk styled map? It would have to have Borders, Continents, bonuses, etc, but it might be fun

    Not a bad idea...

    Post Maybe

    If you called it a board game map, then maybe, but I HATE Risk. On our weekend games between RPGs and Euchre, sometimes Risk is brought and I say, "I'll leave if we play Risk..." that's how much I hate the game...

    That's just me, this opinion shouldn't affect whether this would be a good challenge or not, though.

    It's pretty popular in the mid-west (played a ton of it in college) as well as across the border from you in and around Buffalo and Niagara Falls.

    Post Yes, but very localized

    Threadjack again...

    RobA, believe it or not Euchre is very localized, in Illinois its probably limited to LaSalle and Bureau Counties, nobody from 50 miles away has heard of the game. Kind of like Pork Tenderloins, you'll only find good ones in LaSalle County - everywhere else they are too thick and called Pork Fritters!

    I hear they play Euchre in parts of Kansas and Arizona too - met people from there who've played the game.

    We also play "Dirty Spades" which is Euchre for 3 people, no partners, if the dealer flips spades, spades is trump automatically, but dealer only needs two tricks to survive. Dirty spades you throw in a 9 of spades so there's more spades than any other suit. You're only set for 3 if you lose if Spades is trump.

    We also play Rabbit, which is Euchre for five people, no partners again, with all the nines and the Joker included (Joker beats the right bower), then each person bids how many tricks they can get, whoever bids highest names trump, then its just like Euchre. You can also bid no trump highs - which is having Aces and Joker to bid with, or no trump lows - which is opposite, being stuck with a bunch of nines and tens and maybe the Joker.

    They have Euchre tournaments around here, but I don't go, cheating is very prevalent. Nothing like playing against two old ladies that are cheating right in front of you. Everything from signals to showing the bottom card to your partner as you deal. I never play in Euchre tournaments for that reason.

    end threadjack...

    Being a strategy game fanatic I'm all in. Been playing Risk since I was 7, Axis and Allies since high school and of course Civilization since college. Can we get bonus points for making lil chrome thumbnails and top hats like in Monopoly or lil red x thingies like in Risk?

    lol sure if u can figure out how then I think that would be cool

    @--> GP

    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 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.
