The new version is not what I remember from twenty-plus years ago. As a previous reviewer has said, gone are the the detailed pieces, which are now just plastic arrows with one or three stripes on them. The countries are (I think) somewhat re-aligned and renamed, and the new rules for the "basic" version of the game have changed; thus, so has the strategy. Instead of total world domination, now you try to complete certain objectives. The troop movement rules have also somewhat changed, at least from how I remember playing, with the maximum number of troops being limited to three. Objectives are printed on cardboard chevrons, which seem durable enough (but like any game with lots of pieces, could be subject to being misplaced).
We have only played the "basic" set of rules at our house, and haven't graduated to the more complex (and more time-consuming) rules, but he enjoys it, and mom and dad enjoy playing it with him. Little brother gets in on the action by rolling for someone most turns, and giving "strategic advice." I don't think it will be much longer before he is actually playing the game himself as well.
In short, this was a perfect addition to our family's game collection, and I see us playing it often. I just wish the pieces were more visually appealing than the little plastic arrows.
In general, Risk is a great board game. It is one of the few board games where strategy goes beyond the pieces. Rhetoric and an understanding of your opponents temperament are essential to strategy in Risk. The game rules are simple. The only downside is that frequent die-rolling can make the game very lengthy.
