The Game Of Risk

Risk Board GameRisk is a game of world domination, where the object is to conquer the world. To win, you must attack and defend – attacking to acquire territory, and defending to keep it from your opponents.

Play three variations: World Domination, Capital Risk, and Secret Mission Risk. This game will engage and challenge any player to join the ranks of world leaders!

The standard Risk board game includes dice, Risk cards, and six sets of miniature armies. The newer editions include new scenarios and objectives, and are stand-alone games (not expansions).
