You’ll be happy to hear that this level – the last level – is not a very hard scenario.

Because territories are assigned by election, you will probably have a very different game than what I had, depending on where you make your base.

Here are some general reminders about election mode:

  • When you want a territory, don’t bid until the bar starts flashing red so you can get it for fewer points
  • When you don’t want a territory, bid early and often to raise the price – but be careful that you don’t end up buying it yourself!
  • If you quit the game before the first round begins, territory allocation starts all over, and every player’s first territory will be randomly reassigned

In this game, I ended up with most of Europe, so I placed all my initial reinforcements in it. However, black also placed 12 reinforcements in Europe, and I know that that will make it very hard to conquer the continent quickly. I see that North America is nearly deserted, so on my first turn, I place all my initial reinforcements there.

It’s not that I’ve given up on Europe – I’m still trying to stop black there as well – but North America is my top priority, so all my reinforcements are going there until it is conquered.

Once I’ve achieved this goal, I can essentially conquer the world at my leisure. As long as no one else holds a continent and I keep my hold on North America, I am essentially unstoppable. All other players besides silver and yellow die quickly. Silver is slightly stronger, so my two short-term goals now are to conquer Europe and break into Australia.

With my strong position, conquering the world will be a piece of cake. Finally, we have completed the Risk II tournament!

I hope you have found these videos helpful. I look forward to reading any comments you might have – my email address is at the bottom of the page.

So, for the last time…victory.
