Well the last patch screwed it up for me and it's difficult to play now, that didn't help!
One of the things that burned me is they said: "oh all the stuff will be there, we just want to make it more user friendly, so some of the data/options will be 'under the hood'". This just ain't so. They took a lot of stuff out, and I don't mean the changes (most of which I'm ok with). But maybe I'm just a sore... um.. complainer?
It's still a good game overall, and certainly worth the price of admission.
And Risk... ahh, my friends and I used to play that (board version) a couple times every week. We always had to make up new rules though to prevent people from repeating the same strategies that gave an unfair advantage. Great game.
