Found on a trash can Friday night!

From 1963.

All the original cards, playing pieces, and dice!

The board is in pristine condition (never played?)--and the design is so great:

(I wonder who decided the whale should be wearing a cap??)


  1. To a mathematician (makemakika) Risk is the BEST BOARD GAME EVER!! So it is completely incomprehensible why anyone would throw out an intact game set like this. This find belongs in the all time best brooklyn manna hall of fame.

  2. I am so glad you also appreciate this awesome find!! (now i need to learn how to play...)

  3. I have the same version! What monster would discard such a gem????????????

  4. this is the best version they ever made! BRILLIANT find - I'm in awe of your sweet street score!
