Coming Soon: RISK – NCAA Edition

September 17, 2011


Thanks to a connection at Parker Brothers, I can now report that the NCAA has teamed up with the family board game maker to release a sponsored edition of "RISK," as evidenced by the leaked game cover above. If you can recall your childhood, you'll remember "RISK" as the game where the main goal is global domination over your opponents. Now, it hasn't been confirmed why this partnership has occurred, but we can only assume that the monetary benefits were too big to ignore.

I 'm not sure how well this will go over with fans of both sides, but I can assume it will end like many of the games of "RISK" I was involved in as a youth, with no one winning and everyone involved on the verge of throwing punches. Actually, I'm pretty sure every game of "RISK" ever played has ended that way. No one wins, ever.

The release date has not yet been announced, but many board game insiders are guessing anywhere between 11 to 27 months. At the moment, no price has been set, but many of those same insiders are saying that it will be much higher than it's actual value.
