So we heard about it on Turn 8 and here is some more information on that new RISK game which is coming from Hasbro…
Pretty impressive don’t you think? It has a slight look of Dust Tactics about it, especially with that big walker. Now check out this awesome shot of the board…
RISK Legacy is taking a very long established board game and turning it into a game that is meant to span not just one session, but many. Where usually your game world resets after your session has finished and you begin from nothing when you return the next week, every game of RISK Legacy will have an impact on future games…an interesting concept.
The game employs a ‘sticker’ system where small tabs are applied to regions of the board showing different twists and turns of dominance across the world. But would you really stick things down onto your board game?
An interesting quote from the publisher of the game is…
“In Risk Legacy, every game you play will change every future game. A decision you make in Game 1 could come back to haunt you in Game 10. The risks you take in Risk Legacy are not like those in any other board game. You and the other players will shape how your world evolves: its history, its cities, even its factions and how they fight. Cards and stickers will come into play. Cards will go out of play forever. You don’t forget past betrayals – and neither does the game.
Unlock new rules and watch events unfold as you play more games. No two games will EVER be the same.”
There is certainly a sense of experimentation with this concept, but if it pays off it could really change a lot to do with the board gaming world. We shall have more news for you as things unfold with this game.
Interested in this new concept?
