He coach, did you get the playbook? I am still looking for a good power pistol/ RPO playbook and this sounds like a good option. Can you share the playbook if you have it?
thanks in advance!

coach Mike

Which game? Monopoly or Stratego

The greatest accomplishment is not in never failing, but in rising again after you fail.

Either.  I prefer Stratego because it's a war game.  Even though the box lid (used to) say(s) that it wasn't.  Any game with Generals, Colonels, Majors, bombs and miners is a war game in my book.  It also doesn't take as long as Monopoly.  Monopoly is more luck-based as the roll of the dice dictates which properties you can buy.  Regardless, I'm working on some PowerPoints for Monopoly, as I don't find it effective for playing in a 3-point stance.

Never had that one.  What was the premise?

Axis and Allies is a good strategy war game. Not going to lie, I have never played, but my older son and his friends played. Way to long of a game for me. They played for three days, 3 hours each day.

The object was to take over the world.  Game board was a map of the world and each player would mass armies on their borders and roll dice against other players with the highest roll winning the battle and eliminating an opponent army.

World domination. It is fun. I play the mobile version with my kids. I always turn them on each other. I have never lost to them.

It's definitely a DP game.  Lots of aggression can be created from it.  I lost friendships in High School over it.

We played some bitter games of Risk when I was onboard ship for most of Desert Shield.  Then they moved us to the desert before invading Kuwait and we never played it again.  Got real busy when the real life shooting started.

Played a lot of Risk 50 yrs. ago, after a few yrs. thought it too simple & boring.  Lately played again because some friends wanted something fairly simple; still thought it boring...but then! They came out w some official variants that made it interesting again.  People had long been coming up w their own variant rules for Risk, & Parker Bros. came out w some that were still pretty boring.  But recent versions -- Mission Risk & Team Risk, mostly -- will probably take a while before the games all seem the same again.

If you're interested in a game very similar to Risk but more complicated, I recommend Samurai Swords (formerly Shogun).  The drawback is that games will go slowly at first because there's more procedures to remember.  After you learn them, games will still go a little slower compared to Risk because there's more to think about and procedures are a little more complex than the dice rolling in Risk.  You have more choices as to priorities among the resources you have.  It plays out on a map of Japan, which may be harder to relate to than the world map of the Risk board; you could probably adapt the play of Samurai Swords to the board of Risk if you made some adjustment as to numbers of pieces.
