Quoting QXatFAT (Reply 13): I have never heard of this game. What is it about?
It's a little complicated. The board has all the planets of the solar system, each one the source of a specific commodity (Earth = water, Mars = robotics, etc). There is another planet on the edge of the board (through a black hole) that provides solar crystals, that can provide unlimited power. Each player has a spaceship and some cash (credits), and has to travel round the solar system buying and selling commodities (commodities are worth different amounts on different planets, that's how you make money) to gather the commodities necessary to travel through the black hole, obtain a solar crystal and bring it back to Earth.
To travel through the black hole you can lose a lot of commodities on the way, and you need a certain amount of gold, silver and diamonds to pay for the crystal. The commodities are restricted to less than those needed for all players to make the trip, so you have to trade with other players as well as on. YOu have to be sneaky and plan your journeys and trades, and keep vital commodities away from other players.

For those who do not know it, the idea is that you must "describe" a word or phrase etc to your mate by "drawing" a clue. No vocal help is allowed at all. Very frustrating and can be a completely hilarious experience with friends and a few good alcoholic beverages!

Quoting QXatFAT (Thread starter): Risk. By far Risk. All my friends love to come over and have our own tournaments of it. Everyone from the age of 16 to 50 come over. About 16 players. It is great. True World Domination! Haha.
I've played Risk on and off for 30 years. A great board game.
