Risk: The World Conquest Game, 1993 Edition is one of the best versions of classic Risk. The map does not have the battle box or card turn-in record that later versions have (or the "golden horseman" to keep track), but the map artwork is superb, the figures sculptures are excellent, and it has something unique among all the editions of Risk. It has latitude and longitude lines. This allows for an easy modification for variant play using naval forces. The lat/long grid squares make excellent "sea zones" similar to the territories on land.
The Risk 1993 edition rules have 5 excellent rule variants, two player rules, rules for Capitols (shortens the game), and Secret Missions (randomly selected from included cards). The hard plastic miniatures are nicely sculpted Napoleonic figures.
The educational aspects of the game would include: basic geography, rapid basic mathematics, numbers comparisons, odds calculations, change making, hand management, prioritization,...
Box states that there are 360 miniatures. There are six different colored armies. Thus, each color should have 60 miniatures. Only the following were found in the box:
Green miniatures - 45 pieces Red miniatures - 54 pieces Black miniatures - 48 pieces Gray miniatures - 43 pieces Blue miniatures - 57 pieces Yellow miniatures - 53 pieces
That's a whole lot of missing pieces!
I loved this game when I was a child, however I was severely disappointed when I discovered the modern versions of Risk are cheaper quality and don't have all the army tokens. My little sister stole the version I brought myself as a kid, so I recently brought one here via Amazon that was slightly used.
The box was a bit worn, the edges were battered, but the contents were in great condition. The board was in fantastic shape and only 2 of the armies had been used. And it only cost $20. Overall a great purchase to recapture a bit of my childhood.
