I just won a game by taking North America.
Really depends on what everyone else is fighting for.

When do you have time to play a whole game?

You can't count a game with 2 beginners and Rafi :)

After having read this,

it's clear that I was mistaken in duking it out over Australia with Rafi on the offensive.
Risk is opportunity

Tldr. Attacker should have the advantage, no?
I don't you made a mistake, I think player 4 just didn't play optimally in the west. Had he played differently it would have been a different ballgame.

With the revised version (published from 2008 onward, with close-to-original rules also included), the play time is supposed to be greatly reduced. Maybe they're using that?

Am I the only one who just doesn't like risk?

No. It's not that great a game and takes too long.
I no longer have constant Internet access, so you won't be seeing quite as much of me.

People also think Monopoly takes forever to play. Should never take more than 2 hours for people playing by the rules who know how to play.

Have y'all heard of Risk Legacy? (It's no good for Shabbos/YT, which might have you reject it sight unseen...)
