Not for colourblind people
on 9 December 2012
My heart is torn writing this review, because I love the Starcraft idea and have been a fan since ninety-eight, when Starcraft added to and surpassed the mighty Warcraft. Also, Risk has been a central part of many a family gathering, alongside Escape From Colditz, Scrabble and the essential Pictionary.
Starcraft Risk started great... lots of fiddly pieces in the shape of Zerg, Protoss and Terran units. And then we started to play. Some of our players weren't quite so good with the colours, in that oh look - they've made some of the pieces yellow and some of the pieces slightly-less yellow.
Bottom line is, if you're even slightly colourblind, you can't play.
