You may not associate Jimi Hendrix with board games, but as you are about to find out, the former (and very brief)) member of 101st Airborne Division was an enemy of military strategy classics Risk .
an interview with Sirius (which actually took place last year, but only appeared thanks to some reddit posts ), Graham Nash – from Crosby, Stills and Nash – talked about some of his friends from the 60s and 70s and when he came to Jimi Hendrix, he remembers:
Jimi would play Risk on acid, and I have never – and I personally – never beat him at all. He was incredible at it. He was a military man, you know, he's a paratrooper, and I don't know if you know about Jimi, but no one ever beat him in the danger zone.
Only if you have your doubts about the memory of a 1960s rock star is there photographic evidence that at least supports the general premise that Hendrix (and his band) loved to play the game:
Crucially, we can't see the whole board in that shot, but if we could, I bet Hendrix laughs because he got Australia locked .
