What is the goal of Risk the game?
The goal of the game is to occupy every territory on the board and, in doing so, eliminate the other players. The game can be lengthy, requiring several hours to multiple days to finish. European versions are structured so that each player has a limited “secret mission” objective that shortens the game.
How long does a full game of Risk take?
You can play with 2 – 5 people (8 with older games, but those were removed because it could make games take around 8 hours or so). Games are long, a 4 person game is going to be around 30 minutes – 2 hours. It really depends on the turns and rule nuances used.
What is the easiest way to play Risk?
Wait to attack until you build up troops on a territory.
Attacking with a lot of troops early on spreads your army out pretty thin, which makes you an easy target for the rest of the players. If you want to win at Risk, think about if you really gain any advantage from attacking immediately.
