Risk: The Game of Global Domination. Risk is a classic board game that has been destroying friendships since 1959. Unlike Monopoly, Risk is simpler in that you do not have to handle money; instead, you attack your peers on neighboring territories in search of conquering continents. This game involves a lot of strategy and alliances, all of which can be wrecked by other players. Here are some ways to destroy your friendships while playing Risk:
1. Backing out of an alliance too soon
Seriously? It has literally only been one round, and you’re going to destroy our alliance already? Cool.
2. All players ganging up on one player
This is probably me being a sore loser but nothing is more annoying than having four other players attacking you from all sides and all you have to do is roll the dice and watch your troops go out one by one (or two).
3. Rolling the dice all over the board
Were my pieces there and your pieces here?
4. Defender rolling one dice
Doesn’t it just make more sense to use both dice if you’re defending 30 pieces? I don’t have time for this.
5. Taking over one territory on my full continent
Nothing is more frustrating than taking away my bonus troops just for you to put one lonely troop on the territory you just stole from me.
6. Putting all your troops in Australia
There’s one way in and one way out. You can build a pretty large defense there and just rack in the troop bonus, but it annoys other players.
7. Getting a six on every dice roll
That just ruined my chances of winning.
8. Losing your territory to someone with half your troop size
I am just a really bad roller I guess.
9. Your friend is spread out throughout Asia
This is just a dumb idea 'cause then it's just easy to attack them, and then they get mad and throw a hissy fit.
10. Friends making up rules
No, you can’t attack my Venezuela from the Middle East.
11. Stalling the game
My mother is yelling at me to go home. Sorry mom, but I’ve dedicated three hours to this game, and I have to finish.
