I originally had a resistance to picking up a copy of Risk: Legacy for the same reason you mention. After recently starting a campaign with friends, I highly recommend grabbing a copy and giving it a try.

The permanent changes to the game go beyond gimmick. This design concept does two things wonderfully; it actually transforms from something familiar into a new game by unlocking changes to the rules over time, as well as providing a visual record of the groups’ game sessions when placing scar stickers on the board.

I am very impressed with the multiple engagement triggers this game employs through smart design.

That’s why you buy two copies! One to play and one to keep in its original format. The point is you can modify it about 15 times and then the “finished” game is still playable for as long as you want.

Regarding Risk, I don’t know if I could play a game where you permanently modify the game board. I think it breaks my collector sensibilites. I guess that’s the gimmick of the game, but I like pulling a game out again years from now and having fun at it once more.

7 Wonders ever played and is a very dynamic and interesting game.

Risk: Legacy did not play, and heard talk lightly about the game.

I gotta add that I love that Notifications are working again. There was a bunch of reviews and tips I got to catch up on in the games I’m watching. It’s a great feature.

Love both these games. Completely different bits of fun, but both are just that – tons of fun.

Both games look very exciting and new. I played the original Risk along with Monopoly in my high school days! I would love to play both of these games.

Like both of these games. 7 Wonders is also one of the few games I’ve reviewed…back before my 2 year old started demanding my free time. 🙂
