It takes the nastiness out of the game of Risk, but still keeps the bare essence of the game - invasion and defending territory, all via luck of the roll. No one felt attacked or ganged-up on. Once all the islands are raided the game is over, so it is quick and light. No one gets eliminated.
The board is made up of islands. You sail your boat around looting treasure. Great choice of theme!
The boats are dice-flippers. While it's fun to use them to flip the dice, it was problematic doing it with your ships on the board. The kids kept moving their ships to flip the dice, then forgetting where there ships actually belonged. Cute idea but a little clumsy in practice.
Highly recommended IF you like games like Monopoly Jr and/or if you like Risk and want to introduce your kids to it.
If you want something with a little more depth and strategy, go with Catan Jr as it's also pirate-themed but has much richer gameplay. Risk Jr is good, Catan Jr is awesome!
1. The only cool thing about this game is the ships that launch the dice, but even as an adult, trying to do that with your ship on the board is difficult. Kids aren't going to be able to do it without picking it up and losing their place. Not thought through very well.
2. The game just doesn't work. The rules had to have been put together in 15 minutes. The rules don't explain what to do once there are no islands left for you to attack. Almost inevitably one person is left to just sit there through no fault of their own. The game doesn't explain what to do once you run out of pirates. Though it's completely pointless to really leave pirates anyways.
3. This game isn't like Risk at all. I wanted it to be a simpler version of Risk so that when my kids get older, they'll understand the basics. The only similarity is you roll dice for combat. Monopoly Jr. is more like Risk than this game.
4. Way too simple. My 4-year-old said "that was easy," and the game is 5+. The first time we finished took 10 minutes, maybe. I kept re-reading the rules, thinking I missed something. Nope, the game designers were just lazy and relying on the Risk name to sell the game.
