comment House rules to fix LotR Risk endgame
@JSBangs - yes, but every player before knows that too and can plan accordingly. The problem as is is that its in everyone's best interest to spend all their resources on their turn, defending just doesn't make sense for anyone.

@LittleBobbyTables - I will say its not uncommon for 1st seat to skip an indigo build for the first round, since he can get a manned quarry easily and grab one for free in the second build.
