RISK is a classic strategy board game with the goal of world domination. Deploy troops, conquer territories, and eliminate your foes en route to victory and global dominance.
Step 1: Play Now
In the first step you will be playing offline against Human controlled players. Play with friends or A.I if you like but for the purposes of achieving 100% faster, play against 4 Human players.
Start the game and at the main menu select "Play Now". At the next screen, select your options. You will want to play World Domination, Automatic allocation, contiguous reinforcement and Cease Fire cards off. Important: Cease Fire cards will end the game when drawn, this can benefit you as the player but can also end a winning streak so it is recommended it be turned off.
Optional: After specifying rules and human players start the game, if you are not last in the turn order, then quit and start another game and continue doing this until you are last in the player order. You will have to play numerous games to eliminate 50 players so this step isn't needed but you can do so if you wish.
Play the game as all 5 participants but ensure that player 1 is the one you allow to win. Providing you're not first in the player order, use the other players to attack one another while ignoring player 1 as this will thin out their forces and make taking territories on your turn easier. As player one, take a continent like Australia, Africa or South America on your first turn for Base of Operations.
Be mindful when attacking, if you lose a battle you won't be able to earn Pick your Battles (reach turn 5 without losing a battle as the attacker), make sure you're attacking with say 5 troops to a territory with 1. If you lose no troops you will earn Perfect! if you do some how lose all your attacking troops press and quit the game, from the main menu select play now and the game will prompt you to start a previously saved game, press and you will be brought back into the game at the beginning of your attacking turn (post deployment). End your turn and continue to have the other players attack each other mercilessly.
On your second turn, deploy your now 5 troops and take another continent (South America, Africa or Australia if you can) and end your turn.
On turn 3 try for the 3rd of the 3 aforementioned continents. After which point you should be deploying a minimum of 12 troops per turn. On turn 4 you will earn This We'll Defend (so long as you didn't attack yourself) check how many stars you have, if you have 5 or more trade them in, if not; wait until you have 5 or more to trade. Deploy your troops at this point in a position where you would be able to take 7 territories. Maybe Asia/Europe or North America. Just make sure you can see a clear path to take 7 or more in a row. Take a territory and end your turn.
Once you have 5+ stars (be it turn 5 or 6) trade your cards for By Strength and Guile. At the deployment phase you will deploy 20+ troops for Shock and Awe and will easily be able to now get Breakthrough and possibly end the game. Put all those troops on one territory and make a push to take as many territories as you can and you will earn Be The Best for attacking with 10+ troops, ideally taking another continent (NA or Europe most likely) but be sure to take at least 7 as a priority.
Do what you like after taking the 7 territories and end your turn. On your next turn you should be able to end the game if you haven't already, deploy your 31 or so troops and eliminate the rest of the players to win the game and earn Crushing Victory, What we Have we Hold, Stalking Horse (If you were last in the player order),and Rise Above The Rest.
Trophies earned in this step:
What We Have We Hold
Stalking Horse (If you were last in the player order)
Rise Above The Rest
Be The Best
Shock and Awe
By Strength and Guile
Base of Operations
This We'll Defend
Pick Your Battles
Step 2: Play 2 more games either against Human players or A.I and win
In this step just complete 2 more games and win, eliminating as many players as you can. After Completing the 2nd game (your third in total at this point) you will earn On A Roll. This is another good opportunity to earn Stalking Horse if you had not in the first step.
Step 3: Online
This is where you will run into some serious competition. If you were playing against Human players that you controlled so that you could earn the trophies easier, you will find playing against other people very difficult, mostly because they will now actively attack you and stop you from taking territories. You will need to focus on defending and attacking. If you have any trouble during this online portion, go back and play against the A.I to practice up a bit.
Each season consists of 6 completed games. You get points for finishing 1st or 2nd, as well as eliminating players. You can quit at any point of a game you're playing poorly in and it is very common in the online for people (and you) to rage quit. Picture attacking a territory with an army of 7 only to have them all wiped out by a lone troop.
Trophies earned during this step:
Band of Brothers
The People's Hero
Step 4: Clean up
During this step you will play games to eliminate enemy players, take territories with 1 troop in them and attack territories with double the amount of troops. If you haven't defeated 50 players by the time you get to this point a sure fire way to do so is to play against 4 human players again and have them attack each other while allowing yourself to eliminate them. It is much faster this way but not as fun.
When attacking be sure to attack with at least double the troops of the defender. If you have 5 in Peru attacking 2 in Brazil you will gain progress. However, attacking with 4 will not. You must always leave 1 troop behind so you are always attacking with 1 fewer than the number in the attacking territory.
Attacking territories with 1 troop in them will more than likely build progress towards both Mopping Up and Overwhelming Force. You should actually have these trophies before you get to this point through playing online but just in case you don't, you can get them in this step.
Trophies earned in this step:
Stalking Horse (if still not obtained)
