Back by popular demand, RISK III: Even Riskier scenario game of domination based on the Parker Brothers (now a division of Hasbro) game of strategic global domination.

June 13th at Mersey Road Paintball in Hubbards, Nova Scotia hosted the continuation of the very popular RISK scenario series produced by Tippinators Paintball Team.

Just like the board game, Mersey Road was divided into territories which each team would attempt to capture. Each territory had a point value based on size and accessibility. To further simulate the board game the playing field had large sections taped off as oceans, creating choke points and forced zones of conflict.

Point scoring was simple for the teams. Every ten minute period a team controlled a territory points were awarded. In addition to the ten minute awarding of points, timed ten minute respawns replicated the end of game turns.

Once again the refs on in captured territories were considered Head of State and were able to give players help in fighting through their territory. This overview provided to the players by the referees gave the players glimpse of the big picture of the entire game.

Players appreciate the Head of State feature of the game. Players coming from the respawn could decide to sure up lines of defense or exploit weaknesses of the other team.

“The Tippinators really know how to put on a game.” Said Danny Taylor from Lower Sackville, NS “Constant play, quick respawns, great reffing, the RISK series are the best games of the year.”

The game was an unqualified success. Thanks to the enthusiasm of the players the RISK series will continue in the near future. Tippinator and game organizer Chris Landry was very pleased with the event.

"Congrats to the green team on a strong win. Thanks to everyone for coming out to play," said Landry "We keep evolving risk at each new event, stay tuned for a late summer RISK in which we are going to kick it up a notch."
