The way my group and I played Risk and Risk Legacy is that the Defender can only defend his/her territory (which is being attacked) using units already occupying the said territory. He/she cannot move any units from adjacent territories to assist the territory being under attack (unlike the Attacker who can always send more troops, max of 3 at a time, to attack).
Is this the correct rule, or did we play the games wrongly? Thoughts please. :-)
The defender cannot move any troops.
And it is not really unlike the attacker. Two territories are chosen by the attacker, one attacking and one defending. Each attack is an individual thing, with 1-3 attacking troops. Once the defending force is eliminated, the attacker may move as many troops as desired from the attacking region (!) into the conquered territory (at least as many as were attacking and leaving at least one troop behind).
