Warzone as a tabletop game?: 8/3/2019 07:36:54

It's hard to enjoy Hasbro's RISK® after getting used to Warzone (which is patently better than Hasbro's RISK®). However, Warzone has all sorts of well-thought-out game mechanics that are hard to implement at the board game level.

Does anyone have RISK® "house rules" or some other mechanics to make a physical board game (like the inferior and frankly deficient Hasbro's RISK®) play out more like Warzone? I've tried just doing 0% SR combat mechanics by hand, but imo they don't work that well in the no-fog, sequential-turns situation imposed by playing the game in person.

Warzone almost converts vanilla Risk into something like an Eurogame, introducing layers of strategy and skill to a glorified beer-and-pretzels game. Wish it were possible to play it on an actual, physical board.

To make fog semi-work, all opponents must not be able to see each other’s territories. A “spectator” would have to do the moves and update relevant players of the new situation without letting the other player know.

For attack analysis (with 0% luck modifier) you could use https://danwlgames2.000webhostapp.com/WL_WZ/WL_calculate_attack/WL_calculate_attack.html. Had to rename the website as the provider decided to auto-delete my account and website associations due to being “inactive”.

I have a RISK board game, my friends opted to throw the pieces at eachother and use the neat manual that looks like files to arrest and deport me.

I'm boycotting your website, Dan, so I can't use it.
