Christmas Games

One of my favorite games is RISK. It is a board game based on the age-old struggle for world domination. It is accurate in almost every way…except you use little colored wooden blocks instead of armies and your success is based on the roll of the dice instead of military superiority. Also, the global map is slightly skewed. And flat instead of round. And very colorful.
Also, the dice bounce really high. If you were to measure the distance the dice bounce off the table in relation to the global map, I think it would be like putting all the generals on the moon to make their decisions about what armies will fight each battle. I’m thinking in real life this might not be very practical. Although, if you DID put all the generals on the moon, we might not have to fight any global battles of domination to begin with.
