I saw a recent youtube video for an Axis A Allies game where the reviewer made mention of plastic factory pieces from some version of Risk out there. He found they worked very well side-by-side with the traditional factory pieces used in games of A&A only now they can represent the two different types of factories now available in Global games of A&A 1940, minor and major.

My problem is that I am very unfamiliar with all the various multitudes of Risk that have come out over the years. Does anyone know which version of Risk might come with lots of factory pieces?

Thank you for your time!

This version ("revised") has these city tokens.

It might be the one you're hunting.

I've been trying to determine what iteration for 'Monopoly' these items were from, in order to obtain even more of that!

You're welcome, while the "White Houses" accompanying those "Silver Hotels" appeared as some manner of 'smaller factory'-sort too! cool

Two other ideas, non-Risk.

Buck Rogers: Battle for the 25th Century Game also had factory pieces. I only know as I was hunting down the spaceship bits, which I was actually able to find from multiple sources for cheap, so there may be some of the factories out there too.

The city bits from the 1980s edition of Fortress America can also make good factories.

Grognads, I think you stumbled on set pieces from Fritz Lang's Metropolis, not Monopoly pieces...

One more for the pile, Dust has factory pieces as well.
