Possibly the most popular, mass market war game. The goal is conquest of the world.
Lead your troops. Take a risk. Rule the world! Rally your armies to march across continents. Carefully craft your strategy—you’ll face your opponents on the field of battle and they’ll give the fight everything they’ve got. Keep advancing until you’ve defeated all of your foes and taken over the world! Includes gameboard, 5 armies with 40 infantry, 12 cavalry and 8 artillery each, deck of 43 cards, 5 dice, two reference cards and rules.
Each player's turn consists of:
- gaining reinforcements through number of territories held, control of every territory on each continent, and turning sets of bonus cards.
- Attacking other players using a simple combat rule of comparing the highest dice rolled for each side. Players may attack as often as desired. If one enemy territory is successfully taken, the player is awarded with a bonus card.
- Moving a group of armies to another adjacent territory.
