I have just acquired a copy of Risk Napoleon 2007 from a French seller. The game, as I expected, is all in the French language. I have downloaded an English translation of the rules in advance of purchase and thought myself well covered. However, what I did not expect was the high number of Mission cards (obviously written in French) that seem to be more important for Victory points than mission cards included in later normal versions or, even more of a surprise, the highly detailed French text on the territory cards; a thing I have never come across in the many versions of Risk that I have bought over the years.
Can anyone tell me, is there an English version of this game or does anyone know of a translation for the cards as well as the rules?
I have played Risk for over 40 years and have just acquired my dream version and would like to play it to the full.
Thank you very much for your help
Since writing this thread I have Goggled these things and was immediately re-directed back to BGG where links to translations were found.
I have been using BGG for 18 months; have acquired many good games through it from honest sellers and have had many questions answered about new game rules and read many interesting threads on strategy.
BGG is a fantastic site for gamers - please never leave us BGG.

The files section has 3 separate files with translations of the basic game mission cards, advanced game mission cards, and the territory cards. It's a little inconvenient to have to cross reference the cards in your hand with the printout, but it's doable. I don't think actual English language versions of the cards are available.
