Advantages: World domination! Easy to replace pieces. Multiple themed versions
Disadvantages: Can take a very long time for one game
Risk is a popular game among my friends. We all take pride in forging our nations and equal pride in crushing eachothers vast empires. I'm suprised none of us dream of world domination.
Risk puts you and your friends as leaders of the free world. You all start in your own little space and must expand and defeat eachother in a campaign for global conquest. Each turn you gain units dependent on how much of the board you own. Typically the winner is the last player standing but allied victories are possible just a little rare. Your units are represented by coloured army men each player having a different colour.
Risk is a very simple game to pick up, mastering it? That will take time. The regions are quite ballanced, that is to say that each continent has multiple points of access. Making it difficult to wall yourself in. Typically speaking if your at that point then your close to winning already. The game comes with more than enough pieces for each player and even then it's easy to get new player sets online.
Unless your lucky enough to have a good group of friends then you won't often play this to its full potential. Risk plays best with 4-6 people. Plus risk is a very time consuming game, especially for those who have been taken out early on.
Given you have the players and the time risk is a brilliant engaging game. I wouldn't reccomend it to everyone however. The time consuming side of things will put some off
Summary: A great game for those with the stamina to play it
