But fear not RISK purr-ists, as Electronic Arts has confirmed that "you can absolutely play the classic board game" in addition to the promised "innovative ways of experiencing the timeless turn-based board game in both objective-based and world conquest modes."
Developed by Magic the Gathering: Duels of the Planeswalkers and Novadrome veteran Stainless Games, RISK: Factions is due in "early 2010." No word yet on price.
This reminds me of the Cat Bun war in Perfect Hair Forever. On the internet, nothing is obscure.
