Hi all,

as an old "classic" Starwars geek I was drooling over "Risk: Star Wars Original Trilogy Edition" since I have read the first rumours. Unfortunately, it's not available in Europe, since this market is covered with the CloneWars Edition. So I racked my head who I know from the U.S. to send me a copy - no idea.

Suddenly, my company starts a new project in Washington D.C., nominating my as responsible contact person, which makes me jetting to the U.S. for 14 days each month. Now I want to export my own copy of Risk: SW CTE. Next business travel is from April 21st to May 4th. My question is:

- Can anybody tell me a shop where I can get a copy? (The easier to find, the better - bloody tourist I am).

Or maybe someone is interested in a game from Germany & is willing to meet me for an exchange?

Thanks for your help!

I've seen copies at Toys R Us, a huge American toy chain. If you are in the DC suburbs, you are never too far from a Toys R Us.
Good luck!

Is this it? http://www.amazon.com/Risk-Star-Wars-Original-Trilogy/dp/B00...

If so, I could order it for you and you could pick it up from me during your stay here (assuming you'll be in DC proper). I live in the city, a few blocks from a (red line) Metrorail station, and my daughter's school commute takes me through downtown most days, so a hand-off should be easy to arrange.

The one German game I know I'm looking for right now is Burg Appenzell. But I'd be happy to get you Risk: Star Wars OTE regardless of whether you could bring me a copy of that!

Also, I've have seen OTE Risk in most Target stores. There should be several in the DC area. They are large "all in one" stand alone stores with huge signs and parking lots. Should be easy enough to find.

If you're staying in the burbs and/or have a car, Target and TRU are easy to access. Not so true if you'll be carless in the city. In that case, the White Flint Metrorail stop may be your best bet. It would put you within walking distance of both stores' Rockville locations. (One cautionary note re the Rockville Target -- no big sign or visible parking lot. Subtle (target)logo on a multistory brick parking garage.)

I bought my copy in a Toys R us store near a metro station of the red line. You stop at White Flint and walk to the right when you come out of the station. It's like 400 meters from it. It costed me 24-26$, or something like that.
Also, if you're up for a game while you're staying, you can always get in touch with me through the geekmail.

Have a nice stay in Washington DC!!

Dan
