Metal Gear Solid: Risk
I was kinda sad when I found that the MGS board game, which I thought could be a cool espionage style spy-game, was actually just a retooling of Risk. But, I gotta admit, that’s one bad-ass looking board.
Much like Risk 2210 (a great game, btw), the game has alternate rules and win conditions in addition to the usual Risk play style.
“The game board transports players to a Metal Gear Solid saga with a custom designed map of earth that includes six zones and spans 42 territories. Among the game contents are: 275 custom plastic playing pieces representing five private military companies, neutral armies and cities, a custom Outer Haven battleship and game board, 8 Boss Cards, 40 Drebin’s Cards and 42 Territory Cards and 8 Rewards that can be earned. The packaging for Metal Gear Solid Risk features custom artwork by Yoji Shinkawa, Art Director of the Metal Gear Solid franchise.”
I’ll try to post up what the alternative rules are when the game releases, for those interested.
