Similar to what I posted about Monopoly Deluxe for DOS:
I've bought, owned, and played MANY different versions of Risk for PC and Android. But, this DOS version is the BEST BY FAR. Sure, it doesn't have all of the eye-candy of the newer incarnations of the game, but it has a *LOT* more features... and much better gameplay IM(NotSo)HO.
I have Risk for DOS, Risk for Windows 95, Risk II for Windows 98, the modern Risk for Android by SMG (these SO-CALLED "developers" are BRAINLESS BONEHEADS... Hasbro REALLY NEEDS to REVOKE their official license from them!), several Risk styled clones for Android, as well as the Windows 3.x port of Risk for DOS (also published by Virgin, although developed by a different group of coders and developers than the DOS version).
Risk for DOS BEATS them all, by far. Hell, the WinDoZe port of the exact same game even *LACKS* *NUMEROUS* features that the DOS version has! :duh: Risk for DOS is the ONLY version of computerized Risk that includes ALL of the game variants of the REAL board game that were popular at the time (Risk board game official rules circa 1989, US and UK editions).
Anyhow, two thumbs up... the best version of Risk for PC EVER!
P.S. The manual for the DOS version can be found here - http://www.lemonamiga.com/games/docs.php?id=1354 :)

Wise Old Man.The newer Risk games that came out for the Sega Genesis video game system, did have a Nuclear Risk option to one of the game scenarios.It was more like capture the flag, but if you didn't attack right, you would get routed.

Virgin once promised an "updated" take on Risk, where modern weapons and tactics would be incorporated along with changes in the way negotiations could be conducted. But sadly, the only place these rule changes ever showed up were in the classrooms where the Risk boardgame was used as a teaching tool; Virgin had apparently released the rules on the sly to a few teachers to beta-test the concepts, and they apparently spread like wildfire. Still, if you want Risk with Nukes, Nuclear War may be a better choice. Especially if you go the card game version, and include the "Python (Monty) Rules Set" cards from "Space Gamer.
