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.

0 RISIKO - NUOVA ERA -
Variante di risiko classico ispirata a Dune di Herbert. E' in realtà un insieme di regole di tanti giochi e varianti di risiko sparse per la rete.Ho riscritto le regole variandone alcune e lasciando intate altre. Avvertenza: il gioco manca di playtest nel modo più assoluto, dunque mentre lo giocate anche lo playtestate. I want to be a "Golden file upload"! If you make me a thumb at me, I make you a thumb to you! Enjoy!

One page of rules and 26 basic cards, with up to 40 cards usable with different ways to play Risk. Please pass along any thoughts to jmchattin (at) gmail.com.

3 RISK - Zombie Hordes
Bring Zombies into the world of Risk. Play the game like normal, though be wary when the game-controlled Zombie faction starts to spawn - if not handled quickly, they will spread! Playtested over years across the country, there's always room for improvement. Please pass along your plays and thoughts!
