I’ve always been a large fan of RISK and otherwise games of world domination. I have several classic boards, and a Metal Gear Solid version(it’s like classic risk, but with hero units and a deck of screw-each-other-over cards.)
A card shop owner was one of the guests last night and he brought me a belated Christmas gift- a Star Trek themed variant of RISK.
Does anyone remember some of the more original RISK game sets with the painted wooden armies? They were like, little square or pentagonal bits. Later on there were plastic triangle and pentagonal star shapes, and then the injection molded soldiers, cavalry, and cannons(or variants like in Metal Gear Risk). Since lasers can cut through some wood with the right settings, much like a hot knife through butter, I am inspired to attempt to make a set of wooden armies, like in the earlier original sets.
