Every time you two collab, my bank account shrinks a little more.

Great job once again to the both of you.

Noooooooooo! Ukraine must once again rise to the fog of war and prove it's strength!

That and being a completionist I need all the the Walmazan and Kevlar board game mash-ups that they do.

I'm with you on that... not a Risk player but I was going to get this one for my boyfriend. Come on, Ukraine - fight your way back into the fog!! :-\

EDIT: Though I feel bad for the artists who got rejectionated due to a rather vague rule, I'm SO GLAD this is back in the fog!! Hopefully, it will use its position as a springboard from which to infiltrate the top 3, and then achieve total world domination!

Any chance some one could post links or pics to the other shirts in this "trilogy"? I'm intrigued but can't seem to figure out how to find them... Thanks!

In the library with the wrench
Do Not Pass Go

Both are now out of print, try looking on teetrade.org, but they were popular designs and they don't seem to last long there.

There are few words to describe how much this shirt makes me smile. An instant classic in my book.

So, I've never played Risk before and am confused. Is Ukraine some infamous stronghold that if you control you win the game?

Not really. It's got a lot of borders, which means it's very hard to control. This is only noteworthy because of the Seinfeld episode (which is linked to above).

But GREENLAND? Gotta have Greenland.

Ukraine is nice to own if you can somehow manage to control Asia--fewer spots to build up your army. But trying to hold Asia is usually a fool's errand. Personally, I think the same about Europe--way too many spots to defend.

My personal strategy (if practical) is to capture Australia as soon as possible. If you can build up there early enough, people tend to ignore you since you're out of the way. But it's a nice way to get an extra two armies every turn and it's easy to defend since there's only one way in.

Last Risk post - I've never seen anyone really control Asia until it was just down to 2. And at that point, it's usually just two Conglomerations of Death (my term for the massive armies that accumulate on one territory towards the end of the game).

I've never decided if I agree with the Australia strategy. True, it's easy to defend, but what's your next move? Waiting for others to fight it out? Because it's not like you're gonna take over Asia anytime soon. I'll always go for North America if I can get it, and if not, South America/Africa combined.

Seriously, please let this shirt print.

One of my favorite games + a fun design. My Clue shirt may need a partner. I like the South America, sneak your way up to North American, double down on Kamchathka strategy myself

I had my wallet all ready to buy this shirt. Now, because the woot community failed me;), I will not be buying a shirt this week.
