No, Onyx is a snake.

@  Arazyr : (21 January 2018 - 01:12 PM)

Something I only just "got" last night: Of course IDW's GB Blackrock is associated with Onyx Prime. Onyx is a black rock.

Bet a lot of military people won't want to work this monday. ;(

@  Pennpenn : (21 January 2018 - 07:27 AM)

It seems sort of intuitive for a lot of people because it's the first day in the week that you're working.

@  Nevermore : (21 January 2018 - 04:54 AM)

Germany considers Monday the first day of the week.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (21 January 2018 - 01:34 AM)

The judge obviously had a more material motive than the one he claimed, there need to be some serious investigation of that case.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (20 January 2018 - 05:04 PM)

The reason is even worse. :(

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (20 January 2018 - 04:34 PM)

That moron is a shame to his profession.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (20 January 2018 - 09:34 AM)

I just think a Judge going on and Jury Tampering, trying to make the Jury think a sex taffiker is innocent is sickening. *won't say why he did that as that goes in P&R*

@  Sabrblade : (20 January 2018 - 09:21 AM)

Heh, the schedules for my work weeks begin with Saturday

@  wonko the sane? : (20 January 2018 - 07:01 AM)

Thing about the US is... you can say that any time you want as much as you want. You're still going to get shot, but it might not be because you said that though.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (20 January 2018 - 02:20 AM)

You just did.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (20 January 2018 - 02:18 AM)

Can I just say that right now... I hate the USA?

@  NotVeryKnightly : (20 January 2018 - 01:34 AM)

There are languages where the days are named for numbers and Sunday is "one". Like Arabic.

@  Pennpenn : (20 January 2018 - 01:31 AM)

Isn't it sort of a religious thing for Sunday to be the start of the week but most people just go with the first day they go to work for the week?

@  unitremover : (20 January 2018 - 01:02 AM)

I feel like I've known plenty of Americans who'd say Monday is the first day of the week.

@  Pennpenn : (20 January 2018 - 12:57 AM)

Personally Monday will always be the first day of the week for me. The notion that Sunday is somehow the first day of the week seems completely nonsensical to me.

@  Pennpenn : (20 January 2018 - 12:57 AM)

I'm fairly sure it is in Australia, but that tends to get blurred because of US influence.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (20 January 2018 - 12:19 AM)

(It's Sunday here in the U.S.)

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (20 January 2018 - 12:18 AM)

Anyone here live in a country where Monday is considered the first day of the week?

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (19 January 2018 - 08:40 PM)

Maybe?

@  Patchouli Kn... : (19 January 2018 - 08:38 PM)

But do they search barf?

@  BlackMax : (19 January 2018 - 08:38 PM)

Under water, the fish don't stink.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (19 January 2018 - 07:42 PM)

I read that at first as "Everyone is a fish...."

@  TheMightyMol... : (19 January 2018 - 06:08 PM)

Everyone has a fetish, I guess.

@  BlackMax : (19 January 2018 - 05:56 PM)

I parsed it as "search barf" at first.

@  MEDdMI : (19 January 2018 - 12:14 PM)

But did you get a Snowbombcyclopsragnarokdoomstorm like the US NE got last week?

@  Nevermore : (19 January 2018 - 11:40 AM)

Netherlands? We got one hell of a storm here in Germany the other day too.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (19 January 2018 - 01:59 AM)

Who sings the first part of the GIJoe The Movie theme song? (Cobra) Sounds so familiar.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (17 January 2018 - 10:46 PM)

Also true.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (17 January 2018 - 10:40 PM)

I hate brick and mortar stores around here.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (17 January 2018 - 10:38 PM)

But I like the feel of the brick and mortar search a bit more. And I can see inside packages at brick and mortar. True, Amazon has a good return policy, but I like buying once and settling.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (17 January 2018 - 10:37 PM)

I suppose I could save more if I bought more often from Amazon.

@  wonko the sane? : (17 January 2018 - 10:36 PM)

Closest I got to "free" was 30% off warpath, which just about lined him up to the canadian price had he ever shown up around me. The pile of loot saved me a pile, but it was still pricy.

@  Shrug : (17 January 2018 - 09:34 PM)

Yeah, I purposefully waited on them because I knew they'd be perfect "add onto orders to get free shipping" fodder. Already gotten two that way. Technically "free" and I barely had to wait.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (17 January 2018 - 09:21 PM)

That's how I feel about Prime Masters. Getting back into collecting last year taught me to be patient, which grants rewards most of the time.

@  Shrug : (17 January 2018 - 09:18 PM)

I want Starscream so hard after seeing him in person, but since he's the one being left behind by every other collector in my area, I feel like I can wait for a sale.

@  wonko the sane? : (17 January 2018 - 09:09 PM)

I mean: I maybe woulda jumped on starscream if I found a sale or something, but it wasn't a priority.

@  wonko the sane? : (17 January 2018 - 09:08 PM)

I only wanted the dinobots (cause... volcanicus.) but got saddled with three I didn't want due to the bundling. I'd still be waiting to order if I had waited on individual figures.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (17 January 2018 - 08:27 PM)

Ahh.. I just ordered the whole case cause I wanted too. :)

@  wonko the sane? : (17 January 2018 - 06:49 PM)

Mostly PotP dinobots. Plus some stuff I couldn't opt out of to get those dinobots. And CW warpath... cause he was on sale.

This game has been around for a few months now and I remember it was a bit controversial when it was first announced.

Basically, take your regular Risk game (world map, army tokens, dice, territory cards) BUT get ready to either write on your board - PERMANENTLY, put stickers on it, and maybe (having read the rules, no, not maybe - SURELY) also destroy parts of it such as cards. The idea is that constant warfare will permanently change the world - actions in game one by one player will have repercussions in the following games (such as renaming a continent, destroying a territory, founding cities which give bonuses). In a few games, your board of Risk Legacy will be remarkably different from someone else's because the actions will not be the same.

When it was announced, lots of people thought the idea was ludicrous, as the game calls upon you to write on your board and destroy parts of it. But when it was released, most of the critics I've seen were ranging from positive to raving praise. I even discussed it with a friend of mine at last year's New Year's party, and his reaction was "WTF??!? Why would anyone play that?". First thing I know, 2 weeks later, he bought the game and can't stop talking about how awesome it is. Him and his local friends are about at their 8th game, last he told me, and some parts have been destroyed, lots of renaming has been done, and new cards were added to the game (some in-game events make you open envelopes or packs which add to the game).

Well, today I caved and grabbed a copy. I read through the rules. The 1st game will look a lot like a regular Risk game, but the victory point mechanic is definitely something I'll have to grasp. Also, I like that the 5 factions will have not only a different look to it, but different rules - and my rules will be different from yours (1st game, you actually apply stickers to your faction card, and destroy the unused choices) but I think I'll have a hard time choosing from either Die Mechaniker, the Imperial Balkania (as I like the 2 looks) or Khan Industries (Big Battlemechs, LOVE - but if I let others play it, I'll have justification to yell "KHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAN!!!")

So... Anyone try it? Any war stories you'd like to share?





Oh... and the game is a damn temptress... One of the packs, hidden from the others...

I want to play a few games before I even want to contemplate doing that icon-fire.gif

But damn, than envelope stuck on the bottom of the box is like sticking a big red "DO NOT TOUCH" button in a Loony Toon Cartoon. You KNOW you're going to push it eventually.

I just noticed also that the gameboard is numbered - mine is Earth #524.

I'm not clicking. I want to *play* those games before finding what is in there. THis thread wasn't a "anyone knows what's in the packs?" but "has anyone else tried this game, and what do you think?"

HUUUUUUUGE Controversy on the 'Geek. Lotta people aren't too keen on permanently destroying bits of a game you're paying $60 bucks for. I'm one of them. I appreciate the novelty and idea of permanent changes to the game board, with the cavat that once you've played the requiste twelve games, your now stuck with the results for all time. Don't like that bit much.

EDIT: Devcon, you might want to check out the session reports on the 'Geek. There are several that are spoiler free, and give you a good idea of what to expect.

I couldn't bring my self to destroy the game itself. The concept is really awesome but the whole Destroy pieces and stuff is something I just couldn't do.

It isn't a relic. I always like how a new pair of shoes looks, but I buy them and little by little they are destroyed every day. If you buy a book of crossword puzzles, it is basically understood that each page is only good once and every time you play there is a permanent effect on the book. Just get yourself a regular Risk and also a Risk Legacy and don't mess up your regular Risk.

My friend got the game, but made scans of all the stickers and card sheets, and laminated the entire board so we can start over fresh if we so choose.

It's pretty awesome. We've only got two games in so far, but we're looking forward to more.

Yes that is the way I would go. Still we still need to play my Bro's LOTR Risk. Man I had a Star Wars Risk at one point too but lost it when I moved back home from Fort Campbell.

We're big risk fanatics. I had a copy of Risk: 2210 that got some very serious play since I first got it, damn, more than a decade and a half ago. Between us, we have just about every variation of Risk there is. The Trilogy Edition of Lord of the Rings has been a big favorite for a long time. We actually have both PT and OT SW risks, but both make too many sacrifices for theme to be that awesome.

We only have the LotR version that came out around The Two Towers. Reading the instructions does make it sound like a fun game.
