One of my friends collects all the Risk variants and we play random ones at dinner parties.

Risk? Blah.

Too bad they just copy/pasted the Halo theme onto an existing game rather than designing an original one.

Gear of War, Doom, Uncharted, Resident Evil, Bioshock...just off the top of my head, all have their own original boardgames with their own mechanics, not just a reskin of another game.

If you guys like Risk, I highly suggest trying out Wallenstein/Shogun. Same game but two different themes, and much much better than Risk.

There was also an old Aliens boardgame - which a fan has recreated here in flash form that you can play for free: http://www.newgrounds.com/portal/view/408816

Enjoy and good luck keeping your squad alive lol.

I like Risk because a lot of people are familiar with it and sometimes people I play with don't want to learn a new game.

I'm slowly breaking a few friends of that. I started with Tsuro and Zombie Dice and am working my way up to Elder Sign and Settlers of Catan with my end goal being Arkham Horror.

While I agree totally (I still like Risk, but I have Shogun and it's Tenno's Court expansion and they're AWESOME), but that being said I'm still gonna give this some consideration, being the Mass Effect link.

Wow, that sounds awesome. Love RISK, Love Mass Effect. Great combo right there. Pretty much a day one purchase.
