The best Risk versions and variants⎇ 2021

Are you looking for a really good risk version⎇? We have picked out the best 27 for you and compared them with each other.

Risk came onto the market in the USA in 1959.

Risk is now over 60 years old. It was launched in 1959 under the name Risk. However, Risk has its roots in the French game "La Conquête du Monde", which was already published in 1957.

Even today, new versions are still being released

New Risk versions and variants are still being released - mostly with slightly adapted rules but set in a different scenario (Star Wars Risk, Game of Thrones Risk, StarCraft Risk, Lord of the Rings Risk, ...).

However, the Legacy variant "Risk Legacy" brings a breath of fresh air to the risk principle. This version should be looked at by everyone who has had enough of the normal Risiko. If you don't have any friends who play Risk with you anymore, you should have a look at our list "The best board games to end a relationship or friendship" - here you will surely find new material to put your friendships to the test.
