Description Edit | History

Possibly the most popular, mass market war game. The goal is conquest of the world.

Each player's turn consists of:
- gaining reinforcements through number of territories held, control of every territory on each continent, and turning sets of bonus cards.
- Attacking other players using a simple combat rule of comparing the highest dice rolled for each side. Players may attack as often as desired. If one enemy territory is successfully taken, the player is awarded with a bonus card.
- Moving a group of armies to another adjacent territory.

1 Missions cards - ENG (v.02)
English version of the missions cards. Ready to print on A4 paper (each card is 5,15 x 7,0 cm). They are a little bit smaller than the usual since they were thought to be laminated. I didn't know which one is the official version and I found some with a pink army and others with white army. Therefore I made a card for each one. PS: this is a second version, after some grammatical corrections.

0 Missions cards - PT
Since my version of Risk didn't came with the missions cards and I didn't quite liked the ones available here on BGG, I decided to make my own. Ready to print on A4 paper (each card is 5,15 x 7,0 cm). This are the portuguese version of them. I'll translate them later to make an english version.

14 RISK Secret Mission Cards
I have several copies of Risk -- but, sadly, none came with the cards needed for the "secret mission" variant. I enjoy that variant much more than vanilla Risk, so I decided to make my own set of mission cards. I made a Napoleonic version and two different modern versions, for use with differently-themed editions. Note: The last page of the file is a printer test page you can use to see how the cards will look when printed out, without printing the whole file. If people seem to like these cards, I may make a more futuristic-looking set, as well. Enjoy!
