Artwork from the original 1059 edition and it includes wooden pieces, and the original board design widely accepted as the first mainstream war game.

Never did like the plastic version -- they finally got it right once again.
This is just like the one my grandmother used to have--we would play it for hours! If you have fond memories of the old Risk, with the wooden pieces, you will not be disappointed.
