I decided to introduce my 10-year-old son to a game of Risk today. Big mistake on my part. He played well and soundly destroyed me. Luck was definitely on his side. Until today, I hadn’t played Risk in at least 20 years. The luck factor definitely can crush a player’s hopes and dreams. On the other side of the coin, we had a great time playing together. I had purchased a copy of the 40th Anniversary version many years ago, but it was just waiting for the right time to play.
