Every time a thread starts on 4chan/tg/ about Risk, it gets deleted. goddamnit.

I know there's a good game in Risk, somewhere. What can be done to improve the game without turning it into something else?

RPS triangle of strength.

Straight-up RPS gameplay has never been fun.

I think >>317652 means gameplay where each force has a strength and a weakness in a cycle. I.E.: infantry are defeated by cavalry, cavalry are defeated by pikemen, pikemen are defeated by infantry.

How would that be implemented? I see three ways off the top of my head:
- three different types of units; when you reinforce at the start of your turn, you can pick up units from any of the three types and place them, but units cannot change once they'r eon the board. Having a force that is mostly pikemen attack a province occupied by mostly cavalry would give an advantage, for instance.
- Both players choose a hidden strategy card before combat, and reveal simultaneously just before rolling dice.

Dunno how an advantage would be implemented mechanically, though.

+1 to the Attack/Defense roll?

I haven't played risk in a long time, so that may not be enough...
No. 7669 ID: 30df25

I remember now: a Risk variant where you could have remarkable officers in some provinces. The officers would be tokens in your provinces. If a province with a remarkable officer is involved in attack or defence, the player can roll a d8 in place of one of the d6s. Officers can move on a successful attack from that province, or can be moved to an adjacent province during reinforce. If a province with an officer is conquered, the officer is lost.

This is essentially how Lord of the Rings risk works, except there are also fortresses which only offer a d8 on defense. It makes things slightly more interesting without going to the completely batshit Risk 2042 rules.

Since my family has two risk sets for some reason, we tried various forms of interplanetary risk using both game boards.
We never got to test any of the versions much because risk takes so incredibly long to play...

> risk takes so incredibly long to play

I've heard this a few times. Sounds like something we can improve; a way to keep the endgame away from turning into a mired slugfest you just have to endure.

I also hope we can find a way to avoid the "that was your last army, now go away while the rest of us finish the game" because that straight-up sucks for anyone who isn't the last two players.

Also in that one future-oriented Risk game (2210?), where there were land, sea, and nuclear officers, who granted situational die upgrades (to d8). You could stack them.

I once had an idea about using a seperate hex grid to fight the battles on. I was about to start testing it out when I stumbled upon the Hearts of Iron series and immediately lost intrest in the project.

Were you thinking of the battle sub-maps from Avalon Hill's "Titan"? Because if you were, you have good taste, sir and/or miss.

Normally, it's miss.

But in the bedroom, you say SIR.

I am greatly disappointed.

soooo.... I just heard an interview with someone at Hasbro that said there actually IS an improvement to Risk. Something where you have to write on your board with permanent marker or glue stickers? And there are some cards you tear up before you play your first game? WHAT?

"Risk Legacy." Each time you play, you will change the board and cards. Permanently. Future games with this set start with the changes. There's also "unlockables" to add new cards/pieces/rules to the game when events happen during normal play.

Planned obsolescence for boardgames. Dear god.

Do you guys play anything like TripleA or is that considered too complicated to fall under "Risk"?
No. 7825 ID: 30df25

> TripleA is programed in Java and can run on any platform that supports Java (including Microsoft Windows, GNU/Linux, and Mac OS X).

- Axis & Allies is better than Risk, you're slumming it here.
- TripleA is a videogame of a boardgame that is an improvement on an improvement on Risk. You are super slumming it in this thread, mi amigo.
