Probably the best version of Risk
Reviewed in Australia on 10 July 2021
For this review, I'll expect you know Risk and you love it. I needed a new copy of Risk. Other reviews raved about this Anniversary Edition and it's fancy packaging. I now realise they only meant the external packaging, which doesn't help when playing the game. Thankfully, this version has many different types of game rules: UK, USA, old, new. The board is solid and yet easily packed away. Sadly, the pieces are the regular plastic ones, not special, but there is enough for more than 4 players which is good. Sadly, the containers for each player's pieces are cardboard and fall apart quickly. In all, this Anniversary Edition is good value. This is how every set should be, but an Anniversary Edition should be a step above. In the end, I bought plastic containers for the player pieces and threw out all the flimsy cardboard packaging inside the box. This is probably the best version of the game available.
