I have had this conversation elsewhere, but I did not get to any conclusion.

Does anybody know where I could buy a Lord of the Rigns RISK set which ships to the UK? Because I am at a loss as to where I could find one.

Thanks for you're help.

Andúril, I have the LOTR Risk game, and I bought it in Waterstone's. WH Smith had it at the same time - last Christmas.

When I was in our nearest Waterstone's a few weeks ago, they still stocked it, so if you have one near you, check it out.

Some day, we must meet up and play it - I'm unbeaten so far! []

I consider myself a Risk Master (but maybe not on par with Mandin). However, I managed to get myself beaten by a 10 year old in the LOTR version.

Ah, but Thorin, the tactics and demographics of the Lotr version are so different from the conventional version.

That's probably why I was so handily beaten. Yeah, that's it!

And I think now is an appropriate time to quote Eddie Izzard:

"Hitler obviously never played risk when he was a kid.... Eastern Europe, not a good idea... Its true! That Eastern European Russian area is impossible to hold! Papua New Guinea! All the purples! That's where you wanna go! And you just build up and build up! And then you take over the world!"

A chain of shops called Gamleys (I believe that's how you spell it) sells the Lord of the Rings Risk game, if you have one near you and are still having problems finding a shop.

I saw some sets in HMV. They cost £29.99

I saw them in Glasgow, but chances are you'll find 'em in another HMV.

And Waterstone's, WH Smith, and I've seen it on eBay as well.

edited for idiocy, due to having seen ROTK which has affected my brain...

The best way to play it is by playing with the real rules and the strongholds and rivers.
Forget the mission cards, sites of power, and leaders. []
