Risk legacy
Pawtucket, RI : Hasbro, Inc., [2011]
At its core, Risk Legacy is a strategy war game of Risk: Players control countries or regions on a map of the world, and through combat try to eliminate all opponents from the game. (Players roll dice to determine who loses units in battle). Risk Legacy differes from standard Risk in changing over time based on the outcome of each game and the players' choices. Choices made in one game affect future games. During the game, players write on the game, mark it, put stickers on it, and even throw parts of it away; however, this is not a "disposable" game. The first 15 games played on the board change the set up for future wars in this world. The game can continue to change beyond the 15 game campaign, and even when it finally does stop changing, there is a completely unique, customized copy of Risk that plays better than any other version.
