Why Purchase

Risk is a game of military strategy that I have found many a teenage boy playing.  The goal of the game is global domination and you begin with five armies who each have forty infantry troops, twelve cavalry, and eight artillery.  Players take turns trying to march on other countries and forcing the opposing troops out.
