Risk co-opts another video game franchise with Risk: Mass Effect Galaxy at War. It's the classic board game of global domination elevated to a galactic scale. Play as Alliance, Cerberus or Reapers, scrambling to determine the fate of the Milky Way.
Risk: Mass Effect has three modes. The first, Basic Training, is standard Risk. The second, Galaxy at War, is fast paced and strategic individual and team play. The third, War Assets, involves quick card and dice gameplay. I'm curious as to how those second and third modes play out.
Just don't fall victim to one of the classic blunders -- the most famous of which is "Never get involved in a land war in the Terminus Systems."
