I have been playing board games every since I was a little kid. I stop playing board games because I started getting a little older and games like Monopoly, Chess, and Clue didnt really hold my interest anymore. Alot of my friends have been talking about the board game risk so I decided to play with them one night. I was addicted every since I played that one night. This is a classic game of military strategy, you will lead your armies across the world fighting enemies to try to get control of the world. It is a little difficult for kids under the age of seven so I would recommend not buying it for them. This game is truely amazing and never gets boring. It comes with six different color army peices including red, black, yelllow, orange, green, pink. The color varies it all depends on what Risk game you purchase. This game can be up to six players. I would recommend this game to anybody who is looking for somthing new. If you play with all six players this game can last anywhere from 1-8 hours depending on the will to win. This game is available were ever games are sold.
