A friend of mine was throwing out her old risk game because the board and box had become mildewy (if that's a word). Anyway, I happened to be there so I confiscated the game pieces. They must have potential right?

I have no idea what to do with them so I thought I'd see if any of you had an idea. They are plastic so they should melt but I've never done a lot with plastic before. Anyway, here are some pics and lend me your brains!

Any idea where I can get basic instructions? Oh, and since my husband seems to be coming to the conclusion that I need to stay away from the stove  Grin, anyone know how easy it is?

Let us know what you decide to do, and just to be safe, keep the fire extinguisher close at hand (Better safe than sorry!)
