Small World is the game you wanted Risk to be. Here, you control a fantasy race who has a unique attribute that will be randomly setup from game to game. You try to control as much territory as you can, until, you overextend yourself and need to send your civilization into decline. Worry not! You can get a new one and start conquering somewhere else. With simple combat rules and a lot of silly charm, there is a lot of mass appeal for this game.
