Risk: Balance of Power is a two-player version of Risk on a map covering a large part of Europe (Iberia and the Balkans do not partake). The map is divided into 6 regions consisting of 30 territories. Some of the territories contain rough terrain and are harder to attack. There are 4 different starting setups for the 2 players. All of them include a neutral player.
To win, a player must keep his capital and achieve 3 goals. All goals are public. For each setup a different combination of 8 of the available 12 goals is used. In the Command Centre version, you are able to add support to the neutral player, and your defeated armies can be used to gain special bonuses. One of the bonuses even allows you to attack with (some) neutral armies. Armies are still raised based on the number of territories and any regions you own, but also on the number of cities. As in standard risk, area cards are still gained upon conquering a territory, and can still be used to raise additional armies. The army units are in the shape of small (flat) arrows.
