Review for risk game thrones board

Price was $59.99. My husband and i are risk lovers already and we love that this game lets us connect to one of our favorite tv shows. It took us a while to figure out all the rules and complexities of game play, but we have had a lot of fun with this game. I like that we can play it as a 2-player game as well, whereas a lot of risk games are not as fun with just 2 people. The special forces, ports, characters, etc. All make it so that this game can become a lot more strategic and less reliant on luck - though in the end, having good dice rolls is a must! i have found the game pieces, cards, etc. To be of good quality - no different from other risk games played.

Introduction

My boyfriend wanted this game, so i purchased it for his birthday. I was not really looking forward to playing because i've never played risk, it seemed quite complicated, and my boyfriend often drives me insane when we do anything competitive. However, i was a damn fool. This game is so much fun, we've played it probably two or three times a week for the past month. There's multiple different ways to play, and unlike many board games, it's still great for just two players. . Definitely a great gift for someone to open because it's hefty, attractive, and has really nice presentation. My only complaint would be that sometimes it's hard to differentiate the colors on the map and pieces.

Risk: Game of Thrones Board Game Review (RI104-375)

Nice twists to risk gameplay. Love the fact that the game has built in flexibility with rules and gameplay choosing elements of traditional risk (skirmish) with more game of thrones elements (dominion). And it even suggests that you play with the elements you like and ditch the ones you don't. Even has built in balance for player turn with houses (stark, lannister, etc determining order of play) and bonuses for players starting towards the end. Really like the fact that this can be played by up to 7 players (two boards are cool, albeit space consuming). Just recently purchased it and have only played a couple of times, but i think this has finally replaced lord of the rings trilogy edition as the go to risk game in my household. Now, if it weren't for the gameplay and options for diversity, i probably would have given this game 3 stars (as it is i knocked it to 4) due to some quality control issues. I was very surprised the first time i picked up one of the territory cards. Very flimsy/thin and cheap feeling. We own tons of family board/card games and these cards are pretty bad. I'm not sure they will last as much as we will play this game. The board and the other pieces seem to be constructed well, but my biggest knock on them is the coloring. The light gray of stark and mint green of martell can be a bit confusing depending on the lighting of the room, but my biggest gripe is the coloring of the board. The vale of arryn being the biggest problem. Territories out to the edges seem to be darker than the middle. To the point that you almost can't see islands such as the arbor or tarth and can't even read old town. And with all the dark colors it can be hard to see borders between territories. For the price of the game i expected better cards at the least, but considering there are almost 200 cards i guess they decided it was too much cost or took up too much room with thicker cards. . Edit: upon further playing some two player matches, you can run out of single army pieces to use with no spot for additional three pieces on the board. You only have 30 singles and there are a lot of territory spaces. Had to use different colored pieces during gameplay. The gameplay itself still holds up. The biggest trick is finding the balance between how much gold is generated per turn and how many objective points to obtain to declare a win depending on the number of folks playing. -U. Taylor

I was so excited to find this version of risk! i eagerly opened the box and memorized every part of the handbook and pieces.

Her only complaint was that the directions could have been slightly more detailed. Since purchasing we have played the game twice putting over six hours into each play through, so be sure to have plenty of free time to invest before starting a game. This game features three game modes including classic risk. There are two game boards included. You can use one or both boards depending on what game mode you choose.

The F.A.Q. for Risk: Game Of Thrones Board Game (Usaopoly)

As a fan of both risk and game of thrones (show and books) i was very excited to get my hands on this game. I'm happy to report that this version of risk is the most enjoyable that i have ever played, and is fun even if you are unfamiliar with the show. I have played the 2-player and 3-player versions of the game at the time of this review. . The biggest change to classic risk is the introduction of gold as a resource. At the beginning of a players turn, the player will gain additional armies and gold, based on the number of territories occupied. Additionally, some territories contain castles and/or ports, which give bonus armies and gold, respectively. Gold can be spent at the beginning of your turn to buy objective cards or maester cards. Objective cards are just what they sound like - accomplish the mission described by the card, and you are awarded points toward winning the game. Maester cards give you access to a random one-use ability which requires additional gold to use. Some are during your own turn but others can be used during your opponents. The cards have a wide variety of offensive and defensive uses, and can dramatically alter the course of you or your opponents turn. These are a great addition as new strategic options are presented, and the game becomes very dynamic. Power will shift between players quickly with a well timed card. Fans of the show will love how thematic the cards are, as their abilities make some great references that are very much in the spirit of got. One player might plan an invasion only to have it derailed by a wedding between the players houses, or a defection of traitorous armies to the opposing player. There were multiple instances during our games where several players were cackling with delight at thwarting an enemies best-laid plans with the perfect card. . On top of these one-time use maester cards, each player controls a house modeled after those in the source material. Each house has 4 character cards which provide abilities that may be used once per turn by spending gold. The abilities are themed to match their characters. For example, davos seaworth is a character for house baratheon whose naval skill gives a bonus in battles involving a sea port. It's a nice touch that gives each army a slightly different flavor. These differences aren't so drastic as to upset game balance, but rather just add a bit of variety to offer differing playstyles. . Long time risk players will notice that armies are much smaller in this version than in classic risk, and this is an undeniably good thing. Gone are the days of 45 unit armies squaring off for ten minutes of dice rolling attrition. The smaller armies can be upgraded to pack a stronger punch by way of tokens which allow to to add +1 to your die roll or exchange a 6-sided die for an 8-sided one, for example. Having more concentrated armies helps speed the game up without sacrificing the satisfaction of fielding or facing a powerful army. Additionally having smaller armies makes it much more difficult to "hole up" in a corner of the map and play too defensively. This is made even more true by the addition of ports to some territories. Ports of matching colors can invade one another as if they were adjacent, meaning players separated geographically can still fight if they are connected by the sea. . From a manufacturing standpoint, all game pieces are of a very high quality. The two boards, westeros and essos, are beautiful, accurate maps. The game pieces themselves are very nicely detailed (particularly the baratheon stags, although i fear some may lost some antlers in the future). All of the cards have a high quality print, with high definition character photos. . I have one minor quibble with the game, and that is the invention of "house ghiscari" as one of the playable factions. Other houses are targaryen, stark, lannister, baratheon, tyrell, and martell. Ghiscari was created using several (very) minor characters to give an oppositional force to the targaryens on the continent of essos for 2-person games, or for 6-7 player games which involve using both boards at once (! ). Simply put, as a book or show fan this "house" is pretty lame. The combined screen time of all four of your characters is less than most individual major characters. I understand why they made the decision to create them, but they are definitely the least exciting faction to control from a thematic standpoint. . As i mentioned before, i have only played this with 2-3 players. The 3 person games took about 3 hours to complete. Game length is certain to increase with the number of players, especially if several are unfamiliar with the rules. Being familiar with the basic risk rules will expedite learning, but there is some adjusting to be done with the new rule additions. I suggest playing with the objective cards that give victory points rather than playing until all but one player is eliminated, so that you don't end up with a bunch of friends sitting around for an hour while two players duke it out to the finish. One thoughtful rule change was to provide small bonuses to players whose turn comes 3rd or later (such as some starting gold) so that they aren't helpless, watching all of the other players smash them to pieces before they even get their first turn. I thought this was a very clever way of leveling the playing field. . Overall, i would highly recommend this game for risk fans. You don't have to be an avid got fan to enjoy it, but being familiar with it will absolutely enhance your experience as you understand all of the references.

What's better than being king of the iron throne? ! exactly, nothing. I love to break out this game because most people assume it will take all night to play, but are surprised when it takes only about 2-3 hours to play a 3-4 person skirmish. Obviously, there is a more advanced play option that allows you to get into the weeds with the got theme, but i have always been a huge fan of the original risk board game, so when i saw this, i knew i had to invest in it. Enjoy!

L. Pamela, Wakefield says

I bought this gift for a friend who adores both risk and game of thrones. Seemed like the perfect combo. So far we have only played the simple skirmish mode, however this game offers a new challenge with the new dominion mode. This is the perfect game for fans of game of thrones. For larger gaming parties the set offers an additional board of essos to dominate. My only complaint of the game is in the design itself. While the map boards are wonderful some of the colors are a bit too dark. This makes it extremely difficult to read the black territory text on certain parts of the board. Some of the token pieces could have also been slightly different in color (the gray and green) to make it easier to find your armies at a glance. Other than that the game has been an absolute hit.

O. Hakala, Isle of Wight

Son loved his gift! beautiful detailed pieces! brand new, no damaged to package, no missing pieces and for a great price! item described as exactly! well made and top quality! excellent price too. It was shipped out, the very next day! extremely fast shipping! this is an excellent seller! i couldn't ask for more!

O. Dorothy, Washington says

As a fan of the show i picked up this edition of risk to have in my collection. I played risk before but it being got themed really got me wanting to play. The base game is still risk, obviously, but once you've played that a few times try dominion. It took the game to a whole different level. . In dominion you get to use some of the characters from the show, it includes 7 of the main houses/families in the show. It ranges from the starks to the martells. Another really cool thing is it includes two maps, essos and westeros, which are part of the got world. Each map is used in different occasions, depending on how many people you have playing. I've gotten the chance to play with just two people which takes place on essos, and it works wonderfully and it engages you through adding a lot more depth to game with gold and maester cards(which truly change the game). . Also, if you have more than six players you can actually combine the two maps and get a world at war game going. It is hectic but s lot of fun trying to take over the territories across two physical lands. I've gotten the chance to play this and it is truly a great iteration of a classic game. . In the end, if you enjoy risk this edition adds a new depth by adding characters you wouldn't regularly have. If you're a fan of the show and have never played risk, pick this up, risk is a lot fun and involves deep strategy. If you like both risk and got, this is a must have.

X. April, Arizona

Best game ever. I have never played risk before buying this game and we play every weekend. I would highly recommend it for people who like games and are competitive. The shiny board can be annoying in some lighting, some territories are almost the same color or fade into the color they used for water (black-ugh why black! ), and the green player pieces look really similar to the grey pieces. That stuff doesn't warrant less than five stars.

I. Clara, New Jersey says

I was looking into getting a risk board game, and decided to go for this one, mainly because of 2 things:. -the theme, if you are a game of thrones fan or know people that do, this is a perfect game to play for gatherings, the components are really interesting and stand out from the standard risk versions, even if you don't watch the tv show. -also this is the only version of risk that i found that allows for up to 7 player games out of the box, and we are a big group. . You can play standard risk in this one with up to 7 players, you gain armies depending on the territories/castles/ports that you control or by trading random territory cards that you get everytime you make a successful attack, and the game ends when a special card gets drawn from the territory cards deck. Also you can play dominion mode which has special objectives that you have to accomplish in order to get points, there are card tiers that have easy to hard objectives, in this mode you get to use character cards with special abilities that you buy with tokens, the goal of this mode is to get the most winning points, and you can track them with the score boards. . I introduced the game to people that have never played risk, we played a 6 player skirmish game and it took us 3-4 hours to finish it from explaining to ending, i found that it would be better to introduce the game to people by combining the skirmish and dominion modes using the objectives cards, and tracking winning points, since it gives people a goal instead of throwing them into the battle without much knowledge of what to do. . The presentation is really good in this game, the two game boards have a nice finish and texture, they seem durable and are big (you need a big table if you are thinking about playing with the two boards) the fonts and colors used are nice and thematic, all the figures are very pretty and once you get them all in the board it looks so good and gets you into the game, the tokens are made of cardboard and do their work, nothing fancy, the cards seem to be made from cardstock and seem fragile, but unless you are careless, bend them on purpose or throw water at them, they should last since you dont need to handle them much, the only bad thing is that the baratheon and martell figures have some weak parts that may be prone to breaking, also the white walkers, savages, neither the northern wall appear in the game, besides that, everything is great. Also, i don't seem to have the grey/green problem some people are reporting with the stark and tyrell figures, the colors seem pretty different to me. . I really recommend this game to anyone looking for a risk board game, even if you don't follow games of thrones, this version lends itself to make custom rules and objectives since you have extra components that don't come in other versions of risk, i knocked 1 star due to the material of the cards and some weak points on the martell and baratheon figures, otherwise, this is a great package if you can find it for $50 or less.

As a fan of both the books and the show, i thoroughly have enjoyed playing this game since i purchased it a few months ago. The maester cards add an exciting twist to the standard risk gameplay and the objective cards shorten the game for those who don't like playing 8 hour risk marathons. That being said i do have a few things to nitpick:. - the green pieces used to represent the tyrell. House are very similar in color to the grey pieces of the stark house. This can cause some confusion while playing. - the whole idea of a "ghiscari" house doesn't make a whole lot of sense thematically, but i understand that the makers needed to represent a 2nd presence from essos. I just find it difficult to believe the people from qarth or those from slaver's bay would care anything for each other, let alone try to reach out their domain to the free cities. - i wish for the choice of the seventh house, the greyjoys had been chosen instead of the martells. Other than bickering among each other, the martells don't show much capability of working together as a family, and i think if the greyjoys had been used as a house (using balon, theon, asha, and victarion respectively for character cards) it would have been a better choice. Not to mention little kraken figurines would have been awesome. - one last wish - instead of just representing two values, i wish a third figurine had been made for each house to represent units of 5 because it is very easy to run out of units toward the end of games when you have complied lots of armies. . All this being said, still a good game that's fun to play.

I agree with pcphill - the production quality does not match the fabulous game play. The piece colors are not optimized for the dark board - which has some difficult-to-distinguish (for my older eyes! ) territory borders. I took metallic sharpies and drew around the border lines of the vale of arryn and that helped a lot! also, the green of the house tyrell is not as pictured! it is a very faint greenish gray, so it is hard to distinguish from stark. Not good quality control at all. And, yes, cheap cardboard. Lots of it. I guess i'll get my laminating machine warmed up! i think my husband will make trays for the player boards. It's a very well-thought out game - i have never been much of a strategist, so other than usually being the first one out, playing a game of risk gets a bit boring for me. Not this game - i love what it adds in complexity and unexpected twists and being able to introduce (and play a much shorter version of) the game via the 2-player skirmish mode. It is definitely a time commitment, though! being able to kill off an opponent's mellisandre was my high point for sure! i agree with another reviewer that the game objective cards etc. Mean the actual play is nothing like got - but it's one dimension of the play. So far, very enjoyable as a themed, more complex risk, though.

I love risk, i always have, the one problem that seems to pervade all renditions of this game is that over the past 20 years they've started to lower the number of 'units' included in the game. This is particularly frustrating in the games of thrones edition as there are literally not enough units to accommodate singles in every territory of a both boards game, and by the end of a single board game the player who is dominating has too few units to down grade his 3 unit pieces. Other than this issue, i love all of the new mechanics, perhaps including small glass marker beads in the future instead of the more expensive plastic ones currently used for single units might be advised, or include a partner app that will track unit totals. Thanks for the great gift that i gave this as.

When you open the box, you can see all the nice detailed soldiers and their cool little boxes and everything you need. Every house' troops are detailed and they look awesome. Even if you don't know anything ablut got, it is still a fun risk game. The good thing is, it has a very good instruction in it which makes everything pretty clear and helps you get the job done faster. Plus, you only need 2 players to play it, the essos map is for that and it is still very fun to play. The only bad thing is that the packaging is not so good, the box was a little bit damaged for me but there was nothing to ruin the fun of the game. If you want a nice game to play with your friends who knows got, definitely get this game.

Risk is a great game, the got edition is even better. The ports especially makes for a great element to gameplay and strategy. The maps are large and the pieces are great looking. The only down-side i can think of is that the stark (gray) and the tyrell (light green) armies are a bit hard to tell apart. I'm thinking about repainting the tyrells to a bit darker green. . The two maps enables great variety as to how many players, any number from 2 players (head-to-head) to 7 players. . Buy it, enjoy it. Everyone i've introduced this game to has loved it.

I bought this as a christmas gift for my girlfriend and she absolutely loved it. Her only complaint was that the directions could have been slightly more detailed. Since purchasing we have played the game twice putting over six hours into each play through, so be sure to have plenty of free time to invest before starting a game. This game features three game modes including classic risk. There are two game boards included. You can use one or both boards depending on what game mode you choose. If you are a fan of risk and are looking for a deeper experience this is the game for you. The new game modes add so many new factors to the game. If you are a fan of game of thrones and risk this purchase is well worth the money.
