<![CDATA[Ever heard of the board game Risk? If you haven't then unfortunately I'm not going to be the one to tell you about it so go away now :). If you have heard it, this post is going to mention a quick variation on the original rules I tend to play with friends. There may be more in the future.
The modification we play most of the time is to Risk cards themselves. We found suddenly receiving 8 or 10 troops in a country of your choice too powerful (how anybody plays with the progressive-risk-card-reinforcement rule I don't know). So we decided that you only got the two reinforcements in the country on the card. The alteration is that it applies even the country is an oponent (we call it the Paratrooper rule). If you have paratroopers they just attack that country like normal.
