Oddly, SWMBO (She Who Must Be Obeyed) likes Risk. We have three different versions of it, including my ancient version from childhood. Naturally I assumed that she would be as excited as I was when I found this for a good price on eBay.
Perhaps I was a little bit optimistic. On the other hand, she did smile as she was shaking her head, so there is still hope. I'm looking forward to playing this, at any rate.
