It is wonderful to once again be able to buy Risk, my favorite board game, with wooden pieces like the ones I grew up with. They are nicer to play with, more durable, and altogether less tacky than the flimsy plastic pieces that have lately been sold with the game. The differences in the board and the cards seem much less significant to me.

I would have rated this version of Risk 5 stars but for one issue: it includes only the 1959 rules. These rules were revised in 1963, which greatly improved and deepened the game play. Since the rule booklet is not an exact reproduction of the original, and does contain additional information that was not published in 1959, I feel they should have included the revised rules, which have been the accepted standard for decades now.

(The major difference is the number of pieces each player starts out with. Risk lovers will know exactly what I am talking about; for everyone else, the details are available online, and definitely worth looking up before you play the game.)

Was thrilled when I saw that the game is available new in its original version with wooden pieces. While I am still glad I ordered it for Xmas, several things are worth mentioning. The board colors and fonts are a bit off from the original and there is no plastic box for the dice. Also, the box is flimsy. All four box cover corners split within the first couple weeks of moderate use. Despite these problems, I have thoroughly enjoyed playing the game with my daughter. However, at $29/$30, it is pricey considering it was manufactured in China. I am sure the makers are laughing all the way to the bank. You may want to consider finding a good used version on eBay instead.

This is the classic game of Risk, vintage map, wooden pieces, dice, and cards; it's easy to learn, and devilish to win. So glad I came across this reissue of the original set for its 50th anniversary. And at a price that is not sky high, this is a game to buy, play, and enjoy; it's not a gold-plated edition for collectors only.

I like having a set with real wood army pieces, but note that the game does NOT include the plastic containers for the playing pieces, currently pictured in the product photo. The pieces are stored in plastic bags. Of course, anyone who played Risk as a kid knows you need the lids to help move your armies from territory to territory during a large offensive. Or was that just my family?

This is the traditional, old-school version of Risk. It's not one of the new ones that continually confuse me with the changes in rules or the new scenarios. If you haven't played Risk much in the past 10-15 years and miss it, this is the Risk for you.

My teens started playing RISK with some friends who had an old version of the game. I ordered this one after looking at the store and seeing the ones with plastic parts. I like this version but I did print out the 1963 directions as suggested by other reviewers. Not sure what the difference is but my kids had been playing with those rules so we stuck with them. The only complaint I have is that I wish the little storage boxes were plastic instead of cardboard because we pull them out of the box while playing the game. I taped them over with packing tape so they will last though and it was a perfect fix.

Box does not hold up and it is not like the original as stated. We have only played the game 3 times and the box has three corners that already fell apart. Center crease of the game board is also already wearing off! :(. The original 1959 game has nice plastic storage containers to keep the armies in. This one has junky paper or cardboard if you want to call it that and a cheap zip lock type Baggie. I am disappointed in the quality of this game.
