honestly, it never occurred to me why this game is called risk until i played it for the second time in my entire life. the first time i played it was when i was in primary school.
now i finally understood, because every move is a risk.
you win some, you lose some. when you win some, you might not really be winning and before you know it, you lost some. and then when you lose some, you don't really lose some. you're merely defending and preparing to slowly win.
