We own a board game that is a lot of fun. It is called "Riks".

You may know it by the manufacturer's title: Risk.
-but as long as we have entertained this boy at our premises, it goes by the name "Riks".

One time years ago, we found this amazing game in a closet, offered it to him to play with instead of the same old wooden train set we always provided, and voila.

An obsession with Riks was born.

Some kids like to play it more than others.

Certainly, the game pieces are riveting. In a military sort of way.

The horses are obviously standing at the edge of the Indian Ocean to get a drink. I'm not sure why the cannons are there, though.

In case you wondered, this version of "Riks" goes by a loose, variable set of rules that go with the flow.
Some people go with the flow more than others.

When this particular battle was over, I allowed #1 Daughter to make herself useful somewhere else. After all, not everyone can appreciate a one-world system run by a seven year old.

Much more fun for me than our "riks" game which features little plastic pyramid shaped playing pieces. What's that? Who knew that some sets come with artillery and fanfare? So much better! I probably would still not venture to play a game with my little buddy, but I just might be tempted!
