Classic Risk is getting a Westerosian overhaul this August. USAopoly is releasing a Game of Thrones themed Risk set next month that comes with 2 separate game board maps (Westeros & Essos), 7 noble houses to play as (Stark, Baratheon, Lannister, Martell, Tyrell, Targaryen & Ghiscari), and a ton of cards, tokens, and coins. The game plays 2-7 power hungry people and is looking to retail for $74.95.
Jess: While the price is pretty steep, the game looks beautiful and I adore the little minis that each house gets. That said, I am still not a huge fan of Risk. Perhaps the game will have altered rules to make it a little less time consuming, but when you are fighting for the Iron Throne, you have to expect that it will be a long, arduous battle.
