RISK gets a new look and feel in 2008 with an updated map, new rules and faster action. Planning and executing strategic military campaigns has never been more intense as modernized rules streamline playing time to a fast and furious 90-minute average. New universal-themed playing pieces eliminate the Napoleonic-era timestamp of RISK, permitting players to engage in campaigns of conquest limited only by their imagination. In addition, rule updates increase the rewards of taking risks during each turn. “Relevant figures help update the game to today’s audience while objectives help add strategy and cut down playing time,” Rebecca Woelfel of Hunter PR told TDmonthly. Launch date: Fall 2008.
