RFNGD "RISK TOURNAMENT" HISTORY ... UPDATED 01/03/2009
"Traditional" Risk Board Layout
view full size
Each year, the Ross Fun 'N Games Department hosts a Risk Tournament on the first or second weekend of January. The first tournament game was played at the Perry Township home of Blair and Paula Ross in December 1992 with the following participants: Jeff Carnagua, Larry Hensley, Mike Hines, Phil Majer, Blair Ross, and Paula Ross. In January of 1993, the second tournament game was played at Phil Majer's home, and Paula Ross was replaced by Conrad Rockey. The host site returned to Blair Ross' home for the 1994 tournament game.   Although Blair Ross again hosted the 1995 tournament game and has been the host ever since, the location was moved to Blair and Paula's new home at the BoileRoss Sports Complex in Franklin Township, and "the regulars" had now officially become Larry Hensley, Mike Hines, Phil Majer, Paul Risch (who replaced Jeff Carnagua), Conrad Rockey, and Blair Ross. The '95 tournament marked the last year for six players. In 1996, the tournament expanded to 12 players with a two game format. The top three from each board advanced to the championship game, while the bottom three from the preliminary round game played in a consolation game. In 1999, the tournament again expanded to include 18 players, with three prelimary round games. The top two from each board advanced to the championship game, the 3rd and 4th place finishers moved into the consolation game, while the 5th and 6th place finishers at each table moved into the "Boot Camp" game. The 18 player format is still being used today. The 2003 tournament marked the first time where all 18 chairs were actually filled for the tournament as last minute illnesses and emergencies were avoided! The 2004 tournament once again filled every chair but expanded its player base with nine players on the waiting list that included five previous players. 2005 filled all available seats and actually pulled from the back-up list two times in the final week to replace participants who had last moment conflicts arise; the waiting list also grew in 2005 to ten players with six having tournament experience. 2006 once again saw a full complement of 18 players participate, which included three rookies as well as a "last minute" (20 minutes prior to the doors opening) replacement. One of the rookies was Chad Ross, the Franklin Central High School senior son of host and three time RFNGD Risk Tournament Champion, Blair Ross! Chad was on the waiting list for the previous three years before finally securing a spot in the "Big Dance!" Additionally in 2006, the waiting list grew to 23 players, 10 of which who have already shed blood in at least one RFNGD Risk Tournament. For the 5th straight year, the 2007 tournament filled all available seats but did not have a single rookie player for only the third time in the history of the tournament and first since 2001. As has become expected, the 2008 tournament filled all 18 commander positions, but the final spot was filled with a last hour call-up by eventual Rookie-of-the-Year, Phil Prewitt. 2008 also saw the return of 1993 champion, Jeff Carnagua, for the first time since 1994. The 2008 tournament marked the first year since '94 that all previous battle winners ... nine with four earning multiple victories ... participated in the same tournament! The 2009 battle filled all 18 chairs, and no rookies participated for the fourth time in tournament history. For the first time ever, though, an available back-up player, Dave Bannon, was on hand and ready to fill in as required. The waiting list included eight players with previous battle experience.

ROCKEY EARNS 2ND VICTORY IN '05 AFTER BACK-2-BACK RUNNERSUP!
After finishing second for two consecutive years, Conrad Rockey broke through by earning his second championship in the 14-year history of the Ross Fun 'N Games Department RISK TOURNAMENT! The tournament began just after 6:00 PM on Friday, January 7, 2005, and concluded at 12:22 AM on Saturday, January 8, 2005. The championship table consisted of five of the six participants from the 2003 finals, while the odd man out from the 2003 finals finished 7th overall. Rockey's previous victory came in 1999.

In one of the most competitive finals in years, Rockey played his cards perfectly in leading his troops to victory. In the game's first elimination, 3-time champion Blair Ross eliminated finals new comer Jeromy White, and then Rockey took out 2001 champion Jim Bumb. After an extensive battle, Ross then wiped out David Retherford but left himself one card short with five of being able to immediately turn in his cards to refortify his forces. Having just turned in his cards, Dan Coyle only had one card in hand but Ross now had six cards. With four cards, Rockey was able to turn in a matched set and used his army to take out Ross and collect his six cards which just so happened to be two matching sets! Rockey's army was now able to overpower Coyle for the championship.

"Rookie-of-the-Year" honors went to Bill Smith, while the most improved year-to-year player who has not yet won a tournament was Jeromy White in improving from 18th place in 2003 and 2004 to 6th in 2005. The Consolation Game Championship was won by 4-time champion Mike Hines, while last year's winner Tim Sparks was the "Boot Camp" champion. Congratulations to all participants on a battle well fought!

Here are the official results of the 14th Annual RFNGD Risk Tournament:
01 – Conrad Rockey ... Overall Champion ... "Strategist Extraordinaire"
02 – Dan Coyle
03 - Blair Ross
04 – David Retherford

TIM SPARKS CAPTURES 1ST CHAMPIONSHIP IN '04!
At 11:40 PM on Saturday, January 10, 2004, the Ross Fun 'N Games Department crowned a first time RISK TOURNAMENT winner ... Tim Sparks! Participating in his sixth tournament, Tim could feel the karma within the opening minutes of the preliminary round when he was dealt an entire continent plus key surrounding border countries! The good fortune continued throughout the evening as Tim went on to capture his first championship to go along with his 1999 "Rookie-of-the-Year" honors. Tim's victory prevented Mike Hines from extending his winning streak to three and marked the second straight year where Conrad Rockey finished as the runner-up commander.

"Rookie-of-the-Year" honors went to Craig Carnes in a slim victory over Richard Bruce. The Consolation Game Championship was won by 3-time champion Blair Ross, while 2001 champion Jim Bumb was the "Boot Camp" winner. Congratulations to all participants on a battle well fought!

HINES DOES IT AGAIN IN 2003!
2003RiskTourneyChampion
Blair Ross presents Mike Hines with the 2003 championship certificate!
It's official! Mike Hines has done it again! Mike became the first back-to-back winner of the Ross Fun 'N Games Department RISK TOURNAMENT that started on Saturday evening, January 4, 2003, and finished at 12 midnight sharp on Sunday, January 5, 2003. His victory also catapulted himself into the lead in total tournament wins. Mike's 4th tournament victory (1995, 2000, 2002, 2003) moved him out of a tie with Blair Ross who remains in second with three wins (1992, 1994, 1998). No other winner has won more than once (Jeff Carnagua - 1993, Phil Majer - 1996, Paul Risch - 1997, Conrad Rockey - 1999, and Jim Bumb - 2001). Rookie-of-the-Year honors went to Jim McClain.
