Janathon Day 19: Windy ride, Risk

I rode my bike Saturday about 6 miles in the wind. I felt as if I was going nowhere as I rode into the wind. I barely had to pedal with the wind at my back. Arctic air is expected to descend on northern Indiana sometime Sunday or Monday with temps near zero F Tuesday night.

I had planned to run, but my son and I played Castle Risk instead. He has been learning about world geography, and I think the game with a world map on it intrigued him. I’ve tried playing Risk with just 2 people, but I think it’s more fun with at least three. I suggested we play Castle Risk. Risk has a world map on one side of the board, and Castle Risk has a European map on the other side. We had fun, though I’m sure it would have been more fun had we had more players.

Just did a quick Yahoo search and there are more versions of Risk than I knew of. My game is probably 20 years old, if not older.

  1. I’ve never seen Castle Risk before – that’s awesome! Good effort with the windy cycle.
