Today’s Try It isn’t edible, nor did I find it on Pinterest. And, actually, I didn’t try it on a Tuesday. So basically today’s Try It is a total sham.
I love board games. Board games are one of my favorite pastimes. Growing up, we’d play board games (or card games) as a family at least once a week. It was awesome! And really brought out the competitive side in all of us. However, there was always one board game I flat out refused to play: Risk.
Even though I had never played it, I hated it. Taking over different parts of the world and a game that lasts longer than Monopoly? No thank you. I’ll take Scattergories or Disney Trivial Pursuit any day, but not Risk.
Huff the HUbs lurves Risk. He and his brother and dad get together all the time to play Risk (or the equally boring Settlers of Catan). Over Christmas, I was roped into playing this with HtH, my bro-in-law and my father-in-law:
Yep, its the Walking Dead Risk!
Though I love TWD, I was skeptical at how this game could be fun. My skepticism was short-lived.
This. Game. Is. AWESOME.
With WD Risk, there are five different groups that you can be in control of, including Rick’s group and The Governor’s group. Its played a lot like regular Risk, but there’s also walkers involved. They can spawn in any given territory at any given time and you have to battle them, as well as other players for control of the board.
I lost the first time I played, which is to be expected. Then, I played two more times with my sister, her husband, and HtH. Sigh.
HtH and I learned something about my family: they. are. RUTHLESS.
The first time we played? HtH’s group was obliterated and I barely survived. The second time? I was obliterated.
I decided I’m going to play a lot over the coming months so I can dominate against them when they come back in July.
I highly, highly recommend this board game! Its so much fun! And its one of those games that, even in you’re in the lead for a while, everything can change with the roll of the dice and a zombie outbreak. Seriously folks, hours of undead fun for the whole family!
