Risk 3D (2010)

First time playing Risk 3D

Traditionally, Risk is played as a board game on a flat 2D surface. Ofcourse such an interface gets boring after a while :)

Together with my brother, a.k.a. partner in crime, Remco, we completely reinvented the game so that it works on a much cooler 3D surface. The game is completely playable and offers many ways to extend the original game (we added Pearl Harbor, for instance). And last but not least, it is a lot of fun to play this way :)
