Looks like Amazon has Risk for their lowest price ever according to camel camel camel.

I never had any intention of buying this game but at that price I figured why not

It is a great game and the only version I'll ever play. I have three copies, one played, two unplayed. I paid around $44 for each. Great price here.

Is it really "unplayable" once completed?

I'm very pleased to say this is my first "for me" purchase this whole sales season. I've held myself back quite a bit, but my family has always loved Risk and this was a no-brainer. And I get it before Christmas too! Maybe I can play it with my family over the break.

Thanks for the post!

It's playable, the only changes I've made after completing 15 games and playing future games is not giving the specific player bonuses they obtained (continent naming bonuses and missile bonuses) and using an alternative method to give out missiles

I wish I had your self-control. Every time I said "this is my last 'for me' purchase of the year," something else awesome comes along at a no-brainer price.

But this is my last "for me" purchase of the year! I swear!

For real. A week ago, I told my wife that I was done buying games for the year.

I bought two new games (Risk Legacy and Sekigahara) this morning. whistle

Yeah, I have said the "This is the last one honest" to my wife thing several times already. At least this one I can force other people to chip in.

FYI, during checkout I noticed these words next to the product image:

"Toy | Rejects from Studios"

$23.52!

I bought it at $29. Amazon seems to have changed their policy and will no longer refund if they drop their price within days of a purchase.

Oh man... I don't think I can resist any more. I'm not sure I'll find a dedicated group to run through this, but at just over 20 bucks, it's worth a shot.

I feel like that's a bad move on them, people are just buying new copies and returning the new one as the old one. It's costing them more in the end.

That's because they are assuming that you are asking for a price match by default, which they don't do. They aren't even looking to see what a price protection policy is.

Buyer beware if this deal pops up again. I got my copy today. All corners were taped back together with shipping tape. Ironically the "What is undone can't be undone" tamper sticker next to the handle had been removed and reapplied with the help of some more shipping tape. This game has clearly been opened. Contents appear to all be there but I can't say the same for the mystery packets and boxes. I would be mad if I started to play this and it turns out some of the secret stuff was missing. Back to Amazon it goes.

Dead! $47.48. I was going to be in for a second copy since my first copy is UNLIKELY to be played through with the group it started with, so I would have a fresh start with a new group. Oh well, bad decision (?) averted.

Oh no! I hope it's new...it's a Christmas present. Well, if it's screwed up back it goes. We have an amazon store now so returns are free.

Mine showed up all taped too. I haven't opened to see if everything is there

Mine arrived a few days ago and seems fine. I cut the "What is done..." sticker and things look good inside. That was the only thing I had to remove to open the box. It's been a long time since I bought my original copy and don't remember how that was sealed. But this all looks good here.

I think this is the way it is supposed to be. Mine was the same way. I believe this is how it is shipped from Hasbro. Has package-tape-looking tape on a couple corners and underneath the "What is done.." sticker.

*Edit* Just did a quick search and found a couple of reddit threads discussing the same thing. I am thinking that maybe they started "reinforcing" the box recently. Perhaps they had issues with the single sticker breaking and the box edges coming apart?
