Woot! BBG represent! The article's author pulled my photo of my monthly Risk group from BBG, and even credited myself & BBG! Nice! Exclamation point! The article itself is a bit general, but I'll brush that aside. Not mentioning Risk: Legacy is just silly though...

Very silly. And quite general.

Why would someone write an article about such a specific brand and then provide vague, general information? It was like reading about a Sunday farmer's market. Carrots are also available...

Methinks the author lost a bet with the editor...

It's one of those annoying articles written by someone who is almost completely ignorant of the subject he's writing about (and probably proud of it). Risk inspired Settlers of Catan? Puh-leeze.
