La Valeur Ludique
Fred's post about a game of Risk made me think of Paris.
My first "real" job was as a junior PM for Kenner/Parker Tonka in Paris. I managed Ghostbusters and other boys toy lines. I had met Tom Hanks filming the movie "Big" at Rye Playland the previous summer, and I always felt a bit like his character Josh while working at KPT. We played a lot of Risk and aso used to try all the games that the inventors would send in and judge la valeur ludique - the play value - of the games. Priceless.
Come to think of it, I played a lot of Risk in Vienna, too.
Good stuff. Thanks Fred.

The link to Fred's post doesn't seem to take a person anywhere. I'm very keen to check it out.
