If I used pawns from another risk set? Or are there some packets that might run us aground?

You could make it work.

But I don't know if it would be a good idea. There is barely enough room on the map for five players.

A Risk Legacy faction is more than just pawns. At a bare minimum you'd want this sixth faction to have a starting power, just like the other factions do. And you notice those spots on faction cards for more powers/scars as the game progresses? What if the game only provides enough to cover the included factions?

You could use one of the unused powers from the other factions for a starting power.

There are ways to make everything else from in the packets work too. It would take some adjustments on the fly sometimes. But it's doable.

This has been brought up before. without revealing spoilers, there are parts of the game that expect you to have 3-5 players and going over this number would break those elements of the game. That being said, if you are willing to read spoilers, check out these threads:

We are lucky that we always have the same 6 show up.
I was thinking one could sit out, but maybe one team could have two people in it (one person usually runs late). But then if games truely do run a half hour or so, maybe they could switch out...
thanks for the threads!

Yeah I figured about using my risk 2012 guys and just copying a card from mechs and using the other unused sticker. but later in the game there might be some craziness that occurs.

maybe an expansion might add one. I think we'll hold off and make do.
