It only gets better Clive! Make sure everyone avoids spoilers. Tonight we opened the 3 missiles pack and apparently the face I made rivals the N64 Kid's reaction.
This game is awesome and well worth the money spent. I've already played more games of Risk than most of my other expensive designer games so I don't care that it's being marked up. That's what makes it special.
The only packets we have left are the Capital City and the 30 troops + missile pack.
The only bummer is that you can't experience it again. I considered making my own war game with similar mechanics and enjoying the reactions my friends would have.
Some people have suggested trading finished games with other people's finished games. I don't see that happening too often but I think we will see pictures of completed game boards. I have thought about how this legacy mechanism could be brought to other games. The only thing I have thought of so far is a city planning game - think sim city - where players play planners who have to create a designated numbers city hotspots to win. The board and rules and start up and cards could change. In the end you have a unique city. Perhaps the 'factions' could be represented by different types of planners. For example social planners who want a strong social network of services and then economic developers who promote business and environmental planners who are looking for green space and sustainably built buildings...just a thought..and for now I will be ore than happy to keep playing Risk Legacy!
