My girlfriend and I went out and bought a table at a yard sale for $20 and turned it into a custom Risk board!
Throughout college my friends and I would get big groups of people together to play Risk on our nights off, and we really enjoyed the Game of Thrones version since it was a 7 person game and you know... Game of Thrones was still good at the time.
