Risk: Star Wars Original Trilogy Edition» Forums » News

Subject: Reprint has arrived! (??) rss

Just got an interesting email. Not sure how I got on the mailing list, as I don't remember ordering from this store previously.

"Star Wars Trilogy Edition Risk is a one the better versions of risk and is back in print!"

http://www.gamesquest.co.uk/may137855dc-risk-board-game-star...


So yeah. First I've heard about it... but good news if true. This really is a solid version of Risk and a great piece of fan service. Secondhand prices have gone crazy... so £40 isn't bad in comparison.

Keeping my fingers crossed that we'll see more copies in North America too.

Don't want to rain on your parade but I reckon someone has just made a mistake updating their stock list (or found a few copies in the back of a cupboard). This is a game that didn't even get released in the UK until nearly a year after the US (I ended up getting a US BGGer sending me a copy over) so I don't think a general toy/book company in the UK would hear (and get copies) of it before anyone in the US.

You are probably right. Frankly, I have a hard time believing that there really was a reprint... hence my "if true" qualifier.

But even if it's just some old stock that was found, this is a good price for a brand new copy. Especially when compared to second-hand sources.

Personally, I had a hard time getting into this game due to some unclear rules in some situations that really needed a FAQ to resolve. Can't remember specifics but might be some in this rules forum; I traded it away a few years ago.

There is a FAQ around here, the designer Rob Daviau contributed to it. This game is a brilliant 3 or 5 player game with a justifiable cult following, and it's pretty easy to play once you get any grey areas clarified.

A french edition of the game was released in Europe in recent days. The publisher is "Winning Moves". I also saw a picture on the web of an English version, from this publisher.

And in French! They could have made some publicity, I bought an English copy for almost twice that price three months ago...

But at least we could play last summer... cool

Well that's good news for everyone in Europe who didn't get a copy when it came out. What confused initially in the original post is that the image used by web retailer is the use of the original Hasbro Parker Brothers box.

The pictures I've seen of this new edition are from someone that painted his minis. Can anyone confirm if this edition has exactly the same components (pieces, cards and board size, colors) than the old, with the only difference of the French texts for the French version?

Salut,
J'ai les 2 versions (VO et VF); elles sont parfaitement identiques sauf la langue ! Et si vraiment tu veux tout savoir au niveau du matos, le plateau vf est un peu plus fin et mesure 7 mm de moins en longueur et largeur, par contre les jetons de vaisseaux et marqueurs sont en carton un peu plus épais pour la vf, les cartes vf sont du même format (52x73) mais ont les angles un peu plus arrondis, la règle du jeu vf est identique avec un papier légèrement plus épais, la boîte de jeu vf est identique en taille avec un carton un peu plus fin peut-être, les figurines plastiques vf sont identiques en forme et couleurs (pas étonnant car il était inscrit 2006 sur les sachets d'emballage)

Par rapport à la traduction, j'ai trouvé que c'était très bien fait, pas de grosses erreurs, juste quelques précisions présentes dans la vo et manquantes dans la vf mais aussi le contraire : quelques précisions présentes dans la vf et absentes dans la vo. Le texte des cartes de la vf reprend bien les phrases des films de la version française originale.

Une seule erreur cependant, sur les cartes : la carte Rebelles "Plans Secrets" : il manque la phrase-titre qui indique à quel moment peut être jouée cette carte. La phrase à mettre est (traduction perso de la vo) : "À jouer avant d'attaquer l'Étoile noire."

Is this strictly a Euro release or will it be re-released in NA?

I saw nothing on the U.S. website of the publisher (Winning Moves); in Europe there's no German version either on the German website of the publisher, but there's an English version of the game for sale on the website of the English publisher : http://shop.winningmoves.co.uk/products/family-games/5036905...

Has the game arrived yet, and can you comment on whether it is the same game as the 2006 version? Have the rules changed, or the components?

Package tracking has it somewhere in Denmark currently. Unfortunately I never saw the 2006 version so I won't be able to say straight off. I'll happily answer specific questions (e.g. how many death star related cards are there?) when the game arrives. I'll keep you posted.

The game is here! As mentioned previously I have no experience with the first edition but based on the pictures on the geek this edition is pretty much the same. Just like Patrick said.

The text on the back of the ship counters are in French in my English edition by the way. I don't have a problem with this as 1) I don't think the text will be needed in play and 2) my rudimentary grasp of French still allows me to read it.

Where did you buy this English edition with French text? Can anybody confirm all English reprints are like this?

I got it at Amazon.co.uk

It's only the text on the ship counters, not the cards or rules. No big deal.

Thanks. Can you confirm how many units come in each army? Is it 15 large, and 35 small?
