My 8-year-old son and I have just started playing Risk, which I never got into as a kid. He loves it, but I’m not sure if it’s a solid game over the long term. It seems like it might be unbalanced with the idea of huge armies being able to win battle after battle in a single turn, so it might get boring/lame once we get good at it. If you disagree, though, I’d be interested to hear.
He’s also had interest in Settlers of Catan (Star Trek version), his friend showed it to him. What do you think of it? Any chance an 8-year-old could handle it?
