Now you can transport yourself back in time to another era when you play Risk 1959. This is a classic reproduction of a venerable family game. This continental card game may be from a different era, but the idea is the same. You still need sound tactical strategy and diplomacy skills to persuade your opponents to spare you and attack the others. The Risk board game is designed for two to six players. It includes six sets of wooden "army" pieces stored in clear plastic boxes, a deck of area cards, dice and a rule book.
