Picked this up at a thrift store. Missing Europe, but that was a happy coincidence as it made me come up with new rules to gain control of the continents. Now it plays a bit more like Risk Express. There's a good game in here, with nice cards. If anyone's interested shoot me a PM and I'll let you know the mods I made.

For a two player game I also bumped up the continents to 9 (two for Africa and two for Asia) to make sure most of the deck was used.

Lock and load, Brother Gunn

Can you post your variant idea here? I'm about to donate this game, unless your variant can bring new life to it. We rate the original as a 2. Though we may have played it wrong. (we had the continents face up).

Hey everybody,
If you get a chance to try out these mods I hope you like them. Basically the game plays the same, but you have different requirements to grab each continent.


This is what's necessary to grab each Continent:

Africa - Win this continent without using any mind control cards higher than 3 points.

Antarctica - Win this continent using only two mind control cards.

Asia - Win this continent with 5 points in mind control cards and 5 points in giant robots.

Australia - Win this continent using only even numbered mind control cards.

Europe - Win this continent using at least two mind control cards in sequential order.

North America - Win this continent with 8 points in mind control cards and 2 used special cards.

South America - Win this continent using only odd numbered mind control cards.

I agree with Alan - I also found a copy of this in Goodwill with no rulebook!

I'm going to tweak the original rules anyway, by using both this variant and the other one I found here on BoardGameGeek, which is to have each player use separate stacks towards claiming continents; both of those ideas combined should make this a decent game after all!

P.S. V L, you were playing it wrong - the continents are supposed to be facedown so players don't know what they're bidding on!
