  1. I’ve always loved risk, but never really had anyone to play with, sad times!
    So I’ve played variations on my phone all of which are great fun but nothing like the pleasure of crushing your opponents in the flesh!!!!

    I described the game to my 7 year old daughter and she liked the sound of the game, so I jumped at the chance to buy it. I did actually try to find it in a store but nowhere stocked it, thankfully Amazon did!

    I have to say I prefer the old playing pieces, which were shapes like triangles, rectangles and cylinders now they are soldiers, cavalry and cannons maybe an improvement on the cylinders actually as that was a pain if the board got knocked and pieces rolled everywhere! I just found them easier to count out and view on the board.

    There are now new games to play quick versions like missions where you have to capture your opponents capitals, or take control of a specified continent or 20 or so countries, to be honest You naturally gravitate to capturing continents anyway, so we didn’t bother on those in the end, a game would still span a few evenings!!

    Gameplay is as good as ever, and as annoying when you are losing that is!

    My daughter won the first game, well I had to engineer that one to keep her interested.
    She enjoys it, the wife not so much. Second game I won, third game my daughter triumphed again but by her own merit, she took on board to control Australia as soon as possible, I’ve also never seen anyone able to destroy massive armies or defend with so few troops.

    This is still a game that can take a long time to complete, so don’t be tempted to add your rules or keep the cards counters sets to a fixed amount, it does speed up the game when you can trade in a set of cards that then increase the next time a set is traded in, eventually you can get large numbers of troops which can rebalance the game quickly or mop up the board.

    One thing we are guilty of is for each new game we deal out the country cards, rather than each of us choosing a country one after the other, I felt it wasn’t fair at the start if you have never played before.

    All in all still a great game. 
  2. Risk is a brilliant game and so well known I'm not going to say too much about the gameplay, just that this set includes instructions for several ways to play including a handy two player version. This set is beautiful, well made with lots of attention to detail and a nostalgic classic feel. The troops come in cool little card crates to keep them safe and a flatpack box is included to stash the cards. The box inlay is nicely laid out and pretty sturdy.

    It's worth pointing out that the dice arrive hidden in one of the troop boxes so if you think they're missing when first opening the box, check the rest of the items before complaining.
