Playing Arena (the Game!)

Ask Katy

Ok, I own the "Arena" board game and played it a few times, the box is in bad shape now, but everything is still there. Did the guys have anything to do with that? Or was it just a product of the time? Were there lunch boxes? Or other Duran Mania items from that time that stand out besides the silk wall hangings and mirrors?

"You’ve played it a few more times than they have! As a child, Nick, in particular, grew up loving board games and in the early years of band they used to play a game called RISK together which inevitably ended badly…sad to say, but they never got to play ARENA.

They were involved in the early development a little bit, and certainly the design, but Milton Bradley were largely responsible for the overall concept. Hope you won! Katy"
