Editor-in-chief says: Risk was one of the first board games I have played on my computer. Not only the game's graphics were impressive and far superior to the other competitors, but the game introduced new features as well. I recall the SameTime feature being quite useful, with the players taking turns simultaneously. I enjoyed the variety of generals from the 18th and 19th century, such as Aubert, Marmont, Campbell, Wellington, D'Erlon or Barbacena, whom I learned about in school. Being able to control them, even as virtual characters, was really fun for a 14 years old teenager.
