I just found out about this version of risk and after looking into it immediatly ordered a copy. I think its easily going to be my favorite risk variant AND "Dudes on a map" game in general.

So, saying that, wheres the love? Is simply having "risk" on the board throwing people off?

I rated it an "8" meeple

There are many other games with Dudes on a Map that I prefer, but I agree that this (along with Risk: Star Wars Edition) is one of the best Risk versions published.

For the average BGG user, Risk is not seen favourably and I'd agree with your point. The average person in the street who is used to playing Monopoly at Christmas however, would probably consider Risk to be a 'gamers game' for those who want something more hardcore than Monopoly.

I imagine the Risk trademark still carries a good deal of weight in the wider world.

Re: Extremely underrated
Write him and Sam Healy and maybe if enough people do that, they will. I wrote them.

Just a few days ago Tom & Sam reviewed it and each gave a thumbs up, their review was more favorable than their rating however.....I guess the stigma of *RISK* is unavoidable.

I really think I would like playing this game, I saw it at target last week and where it was on the shelf looked like there were many copies at first but only one when I saw it. The game next to it was *RISK* (prime) and no copies ;looked like had been sold.

I wouldn't call an average rating of 8.1 "extremly underrated".

I assume he looked at the geek rating (5.8), which is that low since only 141 people rated the game so far. So it's unknown, not underrated.

I see this game as being quite distant from Risk. That's why I commented elsewhere it should've been called Medieval Europe.
