Excellent adaptation of Risk
April 27, 2005

I thought this was a great adaptation of Risk.

The best aspect I think is the two team game play. A problem with classic Risk and other games that are of an "everyone-for-themself" style is that when there is 3 or more players, some unlucky player always seems to get gang attacked; that player doesn't have a fighting chance. So I definitely prefer the two team aspect in Risk: Star Wars which provides more balance.

The cards and the addition of ships that modify the dice rolls of attackers and defenders is a great modification too.

The only downside to this game is an end-game inbalance. Like in the movie, the separatists and Emperor Palpatine get to unleash their trap to kill all the Jedi. That's well and good for a movie, but when this happens in the game, the game-play becomes very imbalanced in favor of the Empire. The Republic doesn't seem to have a chance.

I've only played the game a couple times now, so I could be missing something, but it seems that some rule modification is needed for this one aspect of an otherwise well-balanced and fun game.
