Custom Risk Game

Risk board

Risk is a diplomacy simulation tabletop game. The game revolves around taking over territories all over the world. By applying the SVU model (Simplicity, Variability, and Uniqueness), we can understand what makes this game so successful and learn how to make a custom game just like Risk.

  • Simplicity: though players can invest time in learning how to master the game, Risk can be picked up by just about anyone, even by children who may not have an understanding of the geopolitical undercurrents of the game – Risk, according to Hasbro, can be played by players as young as 10 years old.
  • Variability: Risk can take a long time to play – which can be great, unless you’re short on time. If you are, there are variations that make the game move along more quickly, including Mission Risk, where players focus on dominating a specific country instead of the entire globe.
  • Uniqueness: though not an exclusively political game, it can be used to teach concepts about how countries occupy other countries.
