Play Risk

How would people feel about getting together and playing Risk at some point in the near future. Depending on how many people are down, if we can get multiple boards, we could even get a tournament going, and I feel like that would be an awesome time (who wouldn't love an epic day of world conquest like that, am I right?!). Let me know what you guys think!

    I need to get better at this whole "showing up" thing

    So, I got held up at work and didn't make it on time. I also didn't realize that all the table spaces would be taken. EPIC FAIL, ERIC!!! But I do now have multiple Risk boards in case anyone wants to do this some other time in the future.

      No problem, I'm not upset. If anyone wants to try again at another time/place I'd be more than happy to come.

      I don't think it happened....I went to the coffee house and nobody showed up. After a hour I left.

    Any chance we can play Lord of the Rings Risk if anyone has that game?

      Sure. Are there like special rules to that that everyone needs to learn, though?

    I'm a big maybe! I play a lot of board games, check out my profile and collection on the geek http://boardgamegeek.com/user/fulner but most of my buddies are too serious of gamers for Risk! and its still one of my favorites.

      Nice collection. Head up to GoB a lot? My collection (http://boardgamegeek....­) is not nearly as large, but we're just starting out with the hobby.

    Hey there, new to the group. Have you guys considered purchasing a copy of Risk Legacy for this meetup? If you have multiple meet-ups for Risk, Legacy would be a great addition and add a neat twist to the game especially if you are planning on meeting more than once. Just a suggestion. :)

      I actually thought about that. Depending on the turnout, I want to do this like a real tournament, with brackets and multiple rounds. So if there's a Legacy board, then the "winner's table" can evolve a little bit every round. That would add a little twist.

    Bookstores are good too (if they still exist anywhere)

      I had considered that. But yeah: I think a lot of those are indeed gone. Unfortunately.

    As far as the day:
    How does Saturday, March 16th work for everybody? I figure that's thematic. With it being the day after the Ides of March and all.

    Coffee Beanery in Berkley and Great Lakes Brewing Company are also options (same scenario though--with them wanting the people who show up to actually buy stuff).

    Thoughts?

    Okay. So I've been scouting around at locations for this, and the barista at the Java Hutt in Ferndale said that it would be fine to play there, as long as people are getting food and such.

    I've got LOTR Risk that I could bring, if it happens. If no one else takes it, I may just step up and say "My house"... as soon as I get my life back under control.
