Risk board game was created by Lucifier!

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.

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.

Try playing World of Warcraft with coworkers. Probably not a smart career move.

Anything you play online is going to have crazy people yelling at each other. It's just an interesting feature of online games.

Teaches young ones to deal with the crazy people in the world.

monopoly with the family back in the has a deal, dad has a deal. which one do you pick, either way you're sooo grounded and mom and dad don't talk for days, you begin to wonder of the stability of your whole social structure, in turn that begins to evolve into a need to latch on to any seemingly stable figure, in college that ends up with a girlfirend that dosen't actually respect you just kinda tolerates you while your friends talk about you behind your back, sooner or later you find out that she's been cheating on you with your ex-girlfriend and....oh, i'm sorry, nevermind...
