Risk is a board game that simulates global domination and warfare and players compete against each other to conquer territories and control the world.
The classic version of Risk can be played with 2-6 players, but there are special rules if only playing with 2 players.
Players start with a set number of armies and take turns attacking and defending territories on a world map. The goal is to control every territory on the map. Players can earn additional armies by controlling entire continents.
A game of Risk can take anywhere from hours to days, depending on the number of players and how quickly the game progresses.
There are several strategies that players can use to increase their chances of winning at Risk. One strategy is to focus on controlling entire continents, as they provide bonus armies. Another strategy is to spread out and control multiple territories rather than focusing on a few. It’s also important to choose the right time to attack and defend territories and to form alliances with other players.
Yes, there are several different versions and variations of Risk, including Risk: Godstorm, Risk: 2210 AD, Risk: Lord of the Rings and Risk: Legacy. In total there are about 40-50 different variations.
