A small Italian town is transforming its main square into a giant Risk board for a two-day tournament, it’s reported.
The piazza in Sant’Eufemia a Maiella, located deep within Italy’s central Majella National Park, will be covered with a 650-sq-m (7,000-sq-ft) board as part of the event later this month, the local Il Centro website reports. It’s billed as the biggest game of Risk in the world by the event’s organisers. Artist Liberio Furlini spent 15 days painting the huge political map of the world used in the game. Super-sized playing pieces designed to fit with the gigantic board will be used by those taking part.
