{Wordless Wednesday} Lord of the Rings Risk



One of our favorite past times is playing games...board games, card games, and video games -- we love it all. Last weekend we sat down as a family to play Lord of the Rings Risk. It was great fun! I lost too many troops too fast and couldn't resupply my units, so I lost. (I'm the black orcs trying to defend this little corner of the North). Nonetheless, it was still a great game and we had tons of fun during a cold, rainy afternoon.



Now it's time for some Wordless Wednesday Fun!


Link up with the direct link to your post(s) containing photos, crafts and adventures. I love to read through and be inspired by all of the fantastic happenings of the week. Be sure to visit other's posts and share some comment love! Happy Wednesday!

  4. Sounds like an interesting and fun game. Thanks for hosting. I've never been good at games. When young my sisters drove me crazy wanting to play games all the time. Then my kids loved games and I did get more into them. Hubby and I play games sometimes now that we're retired, but I have to confess that he is very competitive and we sometimes end up at odds...but never stay mad about it. haha

    1. I am not competitive at all. My husband and daughter sometimes get into the mood, but I just let them go. I just like playing, I think it is fun bonding time, especially with a longer game like Risk. Thanks for stopping by and sharing your thoughts! Have a great week!

    1. Connect four is awesome. I hope you and yours are safe! Board games are perfect for times without electricity. We play a lot when we camp, though that is losing electricity by choice. Thanks for stopping by and sharing your thoughts! Have a great week!

    1. There are lots of great games to play. I believe they do have a Star Wars edition of Risk. I think the game play is a little altered, but the overall strategy is similar. Thanks for stopping by! Have a great week!

    1. Chess is a great game. One of those that is easy to learn and hard to master. I know how to play, but I wouldn't say I'm good at it. It is definitely fun to learn though, you absolutely should! Thanks for stopping by, have a great week!

  14. Amanda,

    We loved playing board games with our kids growing up. Lord of the Rings would be one DD#2 would love since she's a huge fan J.R.R. Tolkien. Thanks for visiting & joining my WW linky party! ;)

    1. It is a blast. You can even play with the ring moving along the board to Mordor. The entire time we played, I kept thinking, we have to read these books with Zoey, who is just getting interested in epic fantasy. Thanks for stopping by and sharing your thoughts! Have a great week!

    1. I do like the Lord of the Rings version because they include optional rules that add in themes like following the ring, good vs evil and a couple more. We don't really play with them, but it's cool they are there. Thanks for stopping by! Have a great week :)
