Each player's turn consists of: - gaining reinforcements through number of territories held, control of every territory on each continent, and turning sets of bonus cards. - Attacking other players using a simple combat rule of comparing the highest dice rolled for each side. Players may attack as often as desired. If one enemy territory is successfully taken, the player is awarded with a bonus card. - Moving a group of armies to another adjacent territory.
"The game CAN be fun and is always good to bust out of the closet (or bookcase, in my case) for those rare nights when nobody feels like doing anything else, but feels like doing something anyway." - BGG user Junjun Gonzaga
"Personally, I think that games like Risk are a real thrill - you sit on the edge of your seat wondering if Jim will follow our 'agreed' strategy or turn around and launch a full assault on you." - BGG user John Clark
"Risk, by contrast, is a free-for-all where you have no other option than to learn how to manage your opponents' chaotic responses to your actions." - BGG user Randy
