That's pretty intense, dude.
I've never played the game myself, but I've seen others playing it for hours on end.
What the type A's need to learn is that it is just a game, nothing more, nothing less.
On 11/11 Durring the BuzzCast Molly mentioned that she is a big fan of Risk: WARNING Risk was created by the Devil!!!!!
I have lost friends because of this game. The board version does nothing but foster lying, deceit, and back stabbing. I have lost friends because of deals that were cut and had to be broken. It's ok if no one at the table is competitive. The problem is if you sit down at a table with a group of type A personalities, someone is going to leave pissed off because of a broken alliance, or reneged deal.
