I'm neither proud nor ashamed to say I've played all but the last 2. And personally, these games haven't really taught me anything ("useful").

Their comment about Risk is very timely. Could be said the same thing about the recent "historic"legislation. Of course, I'm sure they didn't mean that when they made the comment. LOL

They also seem to think that Acquire is a "kids game":

Quote:
In Acquire, the instructions say, "You make money by forming corporations, buying the right stock at the right time, as well as merging and expanding corporations in which you own stock." That sounds about right. But then again, is it smart to turn stock market investing into a kids' game?

Huh? The comment about Risk talks about taking over the world. I am at a loss to think of any "taking over the world" legislation.
