It’s exciting. It’s unpredictable. It’s all about battling your way to global
domination, one territory at a time. And it’s easier to learn than you
might think.
A Look at Your Game
First, remove the game parts from their wrappings and discard or recycle
the wrappings. The parts are described below.
A Look at Your Game
Welcome
Welcome to the World of RISK.
The Gameboard
RISK doesn’t give you a whole lot of rules to remember, and that gives
you the freedom to focus on your strategy. That’s one of the features that
makes RISK so much fun to play.
Sea
line
You’ll decide things like where to place your troops, where to attack,
who to attack, and how often to attack. But when it comes to easing you
into the game, don’t worry – we’ve got your back!
If you’re a beginner, we suggest you start with the Introductory Game, a
version that’s designed to help new players get the hang of it. It’s also
good for RISK players who just want a faster game.
Notice that some territories are connected by sea-lines.
So How Does the Game Work?
In short, you control territories by having troops in them.
You get more troops at the start of your turn and put them on the board.
You use your troops to attack other players and conquer their territories.
At the end of your turn, you set up a few troops to defend your territories
and you may or may not get to draw a card.
The gameboard map is divided into 42 territories, which connect to
each other by either a border or a sea-line. During the game, troops will
attack enemy troops across these territory lines.
The territories are grouped together in six continents of different colors:
North America (yellow), South America (red), Europe (blue), Africa
(brown), Asia (green) and Australia (purple). If you control a whole
continent at the start of your turn, you’re rewarded with more troops.
The more successful you are, the more troops you’ll get to place on the
board. To save space, you can use a cavalry piece to represent 5 of your
troops, or an artillery piece to represent 10 of your troops.
There are 5
armies, each a
different color.
Each army
consists of 3
kinds of troops.

PLAYERS
Beginners will find this game shorter and easier to learn. You’ll still
have lots of choices on your turn, so don’t get frustrated if you don’t play
well for the first game or so. Before you know it, you’ll have a good feel
for which strategies work and which don’t.

Introductory Game Rules
Setting Up
You’ll roll black dice to attack territories, and red dice to defend them.
1. Each player takes an army of one color, and places it nearby to
form an off-the-board troop pile.
The Cards
2. Decide who will go first. Play will continue clockwise.
The Territory Cards
Each of these cards shows a territory,
and either one or two stars. During the
game, you’ll use your cards to get more
troops at the start of your turn.
Territory Card
The Cease Fire Card
The deck includes one Cease Fire card
that is used in the Introductory Game
only. It’s inserted into the deck, and when
it’s drawn, the game immediately ends.
Keep this card separate from the deck
for now.
3. Shuffle the territory cards and deal them out to all players. In
a 4- or 5-player game, there will be 2 extra cards. Give one each
to the players who are going last.
4. All players look at their cards. For any 1-star cards, place one
troop in that territory; for any 2-star cards, place two troops in
that territory. Be sure to place only infantry (the 1-troop piece).
You can trade these pieces for cavalry and artillery later, when
your troop numbers increase.
5. Now take all of the players’ cards and shuffle them back
together. Take the Cease Fire card and randomly insert it into
the card deck. The picture below shows roughly where you
should insert the Cease Fire card. Its placement doesn’t need
to be exact.
Cease Fire Card
Reference Card
The Two Reference Cards
These cards are useful if you’re learning
how to play the game. One side shows
what you do on a turn; the other side
is a guide to getting new troops at the
beginning of a turn. Keep these cards
separate from the deck, and keep them
handy as a reference during the game.

Bonus for Turning in Cards: During the game, your hand of cards will
grow as you take over territories. You can turn in one or more cards at
any time on your turn to get bonus troops. The Troops for Cards Chart

reinforcements to optimal use.
Cease Fire: If the Cease Fire card is drawn from the deck, the game
immediately ends and the player with the most territories wins.
What You Do On Your Turn
Below are the 4 actions you’ll do on each turn.
1. Place Your Troops
2. Attack
3. Maneuver Your Troops
4. Draw a Card if You Can
1. Place Your Troops
The first thing you do on your turn is figure out how many new troops
you get to place on the board. You’ll always get at least 3 troops. If
you’re doing well, you’ll get bonus troops as well.
Take 3 troops from your off-the-board troop pile and leave them in
your hand. Then see if you get any bonus troops to add to them.
As shown on your Reference Card, there are 3 ways to get
bonus troops:
Bonus for Controlling Territories: If you control 12 to 14 territories,
you get one bonus troop; if you control 15 to 17, you get 2 bonus
troops; and so on. Just count up your territories, then check the Troops
for Territories Chart on the board to see if you get any bonus troops.

By turning in these cards with a total of 4 stars, you get 7 bonus troops.
WHERE TO PLACE YOUR TROOPS
After you’ve taken any bonus troops, decide where to place your troops
on this turn. Place troops only in territories that you control, never in
enemy territories. You can place all of your troops in one territory, or you
can spread them out. It’s your choice.

Object: Be the first player to control a certain number of territories
at the end of your turn. The exact number depends on the number of
players in the game. See the chart below.
Bonus for Controlling Continents: If you control every territory in a
continent, you also get bonus troops (anywhere from 2 to 7, depending
on the continent). The number

start of a turn is important. Make it a goal
2. Attack
Roll the Dice: As the attacker, you roll one black die for each attacking
troop. The defender rolls one red die for each defending troop. All dice
are rolled at the same time.
Attacking is the main part of your turn. This is where you decide
where to attack, who to attack, and when to stop attacking. You can
attack as many times as possible on a turn, or not attack at all. It’s
your choice.
Resolve the Battle: Pair up the attack and defense dice from highest to
lowest. Then, for each pair of dice, do the following:
• If the attack die is higher, remove one defending troop from the battle
and place it in the off-the-board troop pile.
Introductory Game Rules
Introductory Game Rules
Choose a Territory: Pick a territory you control, and an enemy territory
to attack that is connected to it, either by a border or a sea-line. You
can attack only one territory at a time, and you can attack from only
one territory at a time.
• If the defense die is the same number as, or higher than, the attack
die, remove one attacking troop and place it in the off-the-board
troop pile. (The defender always wins a tie.)
Move in the Attackers: Take the number of troops you want to attack
with, and push them across the line into the defending territory. You
can send no more than 3 troops to attack at one time. No matter how
many troops are in your attacking territory, each attack can use only
1, 2 or 3 attackers.
After all dice pairs are resolved, the battle is over. See the battle
example below.
Unequal Dice: In most cases, the two battling players will not roll the
same number of dice, which means that either 1 or 2 dice can’t be
paired up. When this happens, just ignore the extra dice (the dice with
the lowest numbers).
Standing Guard: An important rule to remember is that you can
never leave a territory empty. You must have at least one troop there
to defend it. When you move troops into a territory to attack, always
leave at least one troop behind to stand guard. (This means that if
you have 3 troops in a territory, you can attack with only 2 of them.)
Battle Example
The Defender Plans the Defense: Now the defending player chooses
either 1 or 2 troops to defend with, even if there are more troops in the
defending territory. Unlike the attacker, the defender can use the last troop
in his territory to engage in the battle (no one needs to “stand guard”).
Russia rolls 3 black attack dice (one for each attacking troop). Scandinavia
rolls 2 red defense dice (one for each defending troop). The dice are paired
from highest to lowest. Each pair is resolved in that order.
1) The black 6 beats the red 4, so Scandinavia loses one troop.
2) The black 3 beats the red 2, so Scandinavia loses one troop.
3) The unpaired black die is ignored.
Now you have 1, 2 or 3 attackers facing 1 or 2 defenders. Let the
battle begin! See the attack example below.
Russia has wiped out the 2 defending troops in Scandinavia to win the battle.

territory if the defender still controls it; or you can attack another
enemy territory. Wherever you decide to attack, just follow the rules

How Many Times Can You Attack? This is a question that most new
players ask. The answer is: it’s totally up to you. You can choose not to
attack at all. You can attack one territory once, or attack it repeatedly.
You can attack different territories as many times as you want. The
only time you can’t attack is if you have only one troop in each territory.

• If the defender has no troops left in the territory, you won the battle
and you now control the territory. At this point, you must keep all
troops that survived the battle in the new territory. You may also
move more troops from the attacking territory into the new territory
if you like.

What if You Lose Your Last Territory? This happens, either by bad
luck, bad planning, or just plain inexperience. If it happens to you,
you’re out of the game. Give all of your cards (if you have any) to the
player who just defeated you, as his reward for knocking you out of the
game. Better luck next time!

For example, let’s say you had 15 troops in the attacking territory.
You can send only 3 troops into the battle. You win the battle and you
leave your remaining attacking troops in your new territory. You still
have 12 troops in the attacking territory. You may now move up to 11
of these troops into your new territory to join the troops already there.
You can’t send all 12 troops in because you must leave one behind to
stand guard.

Once you decide that you’re done attacking, you get one chance to
move your troops into a better position. Most likely you’re going to want
to put them in a defensive position while other players take their turns.
Or you might want to put them in a better position to attack on your
next turn. As you gain experience, you’ll have a better feel for the best
way to use this part of your turn.
Here’s how maneuvering works: Take as many troops as you’d like
from one of your territories, and put them all in one of your other
territories that is connected either by land or sea. In this part of your
turn, connected means within a chain of territories that you control.
You cannot cross enemy lines to maneuver your troops.
4. Draw a Card if You Can
If you conquered one or more
territories on this turn, draw the top
card from the deck and add it to your
hand. (Keep your cards private.) If
you didn’t conquer any territories,
you don’t get to draw a card. You can
never draw more than one card on
this part of your turn, no matter how
many territories you conquered.
Strategy Tip
Try to conquer at least one
territory on each of your
turns, so that you can draw
a card at the end. Turning
in cards at the beginning of
a future turn will earn you
valuable bonus troops.
How to Win
If, at the end of your turn, you control enough territories to win, then
you win. The number of territories needed to win depends on the
number of players. See the chart below.

3. Maneuver Your Troops
Classic Game Rules
2-Player Game Rules
3-5 PLAYERS
Classic RISK plays just like the Introductory Game, except for the
differences listed below.
First, even though there are only 2 of you, you’ll still have 5 armies on the board.
Each player will control one army, and there will be 3 neutral armies. The neutral
armies will just kind of sit there and act as roadblocks for the players. There will be
times when you’ll want to avoid them, and times you’ll want to attack them.
Setting Up
• In Classic RISK, you pick your starting territories instead of them
being given to you.
Unless otherwise noted, all of the rules of 3-5 player RISK apply here.
Object: Be the first player to control 30 territories at the end of your turn OR
eliminate the other player.

Have each player choose a color army. The remaining three colors will be the
neutral armies.
Remove the Cease Fire card from the territory card deck. Shuffle the deck and
deal 12 cards to each player. Players look at their cards, then each places 1
troop into territories with 1 star on the card and 2 troops into the territories with
2 stars on the card.
• Players roll a die to see who goes first. Play continues clockwise.
• One at a time, in turn order, players each take one troop from their
pool and place it into an empty territory, claiming it. This continues
until all 42 territories are claimed.
• Placing troops from the pool continues, in turn order, but now players
add troops to a territory they previously claimed, increasing the size
of their force there. You can spread out your troops evenly, put them
all in one of your territories, or anything in between.
• After all players have placed their troops from their pool, play begins
with the first player taking the first turn.
• Do not put the Cease Fire card into the deck. It is not used in
Classic RISK.
Deal out 6 cards for each of the neutral armies. Place 1 or 2 troops from each
neutral army into each of its territories (depending on the number of stars
shown on the cards).
Take all of the cards and shuffle them together.
Place one troop from each
of the three neutral armies
to the side of the board.
Place three territory cards,
facedown and without
looking, under each of
these neutral troops.
Players roll to see who
goes first.
On Your Turn
Winning
You win when you control all 42 territories on the board, meaning you
have eliminated all other players in the game.
In this longer game, it’s possible to run through the entire card deck. If
this happens, just reshuffle the discard pile to make a new draw pile.
13
At the start of your turn, before doing what you would do in a multi-player game,
you may do one extra thing: add 3 troops to any one neutral player. These 3
troops may be in 1, 2, or 3 territories controlled by that neutral army. You cannot
add troops to more than one neutral army.
Eliminate A Neutral Army
If you conquer the last territory controlled by a neutral army, and therefore
eliminate that army, you get the 3 cards that were placed under that army’s
troop at the start of the game. Add those cards to your hand.

2-Player Game Rules

• All players should count out a pool of troops, depending on the
number of players. See the chart below.
