The classic wargame Risk has been updated and revised for 2008. The graphics and components are brand new. Major and minor objectives have been added, along with cities and capitals, plus rewards for completing objectives.
The new version has a drastically changed victory condition: complete three objectives while controlling your capital. This shortens the game playing time to around 90 minutes.
There are three rule sets: Basic Training, Command Room and World Conquest. Basic Training is an introduction to the new Risk rules and includes a pre-existing setup for 3, 4 or 5 players. Command Room adds a randomized setup and rewards for achieving objectives. Both Basic Training and Command Room end when a player controls three objectives. World Conquest is an updated version of the classic Risk game of Global Domination: play continues until one player controls all territories.
This is the newest version, which is available as of November 28, 2011. It is version number 2 (v2).
This download is a three-page Microsoft Word Document.
The two player house rules found here, have been developed for playing the Risk Revised Edition 2008 boardgame . They can be used with the " Command Room " version , or the " World Conquest " version of play, for this game.
I hope you all enjoy !
Note, this game is also known as: Risk Reinvention , Risk Factor , Risk Onyx Edition .

I have created this .pdf file so that folks who own classic versions of RISK can print out the extra game pieces they need to play with the 2008 revised RISK ruleset. Simply print it out to a regular sheet of paper. For best results, glue it to a cardboard backing before you cut out the pieces. I designed the pieces in color, but also to be identifiable if printed in black-and-white. There are a second set of capital tokens that can be manually colored with a color marker or pencil crayon if printed in B&W. See the the RISK 2008 Revised Edition Rulebook for proper usage.
This book covers the new RISK rules, and potentially allows owners of any of the classic versions to play the new revised game. All you'd need is this rulebook, LordBobbio's star territory card reference, and the RISK retrofit game pieces (all downloadable from boardgamegeek).
You'll also need two extra dice for the bonus attack die, but you'll have to scrounge those up yourself. Have fun!
