      Risk has nothing to do with retro computers, therefore that is why it is Off Topic. But I would say some of us have an interest in this game. Much the same way many of us have an interest in science fiction (tv, movies, books etc.), and cult fiction (monty python).

      Risk is the game of global domination. You have armies and you attack other player's countries with the goal of owning the whole world.

      I've never played Risk (what all this has to do with retro-computers I'll
      never figure); however, if games of Risk perpetuate like the other Parker
      Brother's board game with the goal of acquiring Atlantic City real-estate
      and facetiously known as "Monotony", I'll pass. ;)

      How about a nice game of chess?

      Back in the day, you had to schedule more time for a risk tournament =

      I'm not sure how many people here play Risk, but I thought some might be in=
      terested in an upcoming Risk tournament in Bethlehem, PA. Details are here:=
      http://www.annualriskclassic.com/. I'm going. Let me know if anyone else i=
      s interested. I have gone there in the past when it was run by a different =
      guy. It's a lot of fun.
