Are you prepared to face the gods of ancient mythology in battle? RISK GODSTORM, a new game from Avalon Hill and Wizards of the Coast, offers players the opportunity to pit men and gods against each other in a war of shifting alliances and magical powers. Designed to appeal to everyone, from board gaming hobbyists to mythology buffs to those who enjoy the classic strategy game of RISK, RISK GODSTORM features exciting game play while evoking the mystery and lure of the ancient world. A game of RISK GODSTORM begins with soldiers and elephants representing a range of eastern and western mythologies: Norse, Greek, Celtic, Egyptian and Babylonian. Players can also use four gods — Magic, Death, Sky, and War — each of which wields supernatural forces. Richly detailed game pieces, including miracle cards, faith tokens, territory cards, and temples, guide game play. The not-yet-lost continent of Atlantis offers a special strategic opportunity, as the continent and all its occupying forces can be wiped out with the draw of a single card. RISK GODSTORM contains a lavishly illustrated, full-color map board of the ancient Earth and a secondary board of the mythological underworld. Enter a time of myths and legends. Enter a world of Risk Godstorm, where ancient faiths and fears rule. Battle across the Earth and in the dark regions below. Harness primal forces to strike with devastating power. Command five ancient cultures – Greek, Celtic, Babylonian, Norse and Egyptian – in a continent-spanning battle that will determine whose civilization reigns supreme. And rest assured, the gods will not sit idle in this war. Risk Godstorm is a new, stand-alone Risk extension with a mythology theme. Includes a secondary map of the underworld to extend game play. For 2-5 players.
