And Damn Asia..I always skip it and just try and hold enough territory to keep the other guy from getting the army bonus for it if possible. Now taking over the Americas and africa is the way to go!
It's more the people I've been with that have turned me off games. L&M and the girls get far too spazley playing Monopoly and I get all wound up.
Also, I forgot to say that my friends got in heated discussions many times whilst playing Risk. I think they were aggravated but compelled, and it made them even more intense. I thought there were going to be fisticuffs a few times.
