Possibly the most popular, mass-market war game. The goal is conquest of the world.
Each player's turn consists of:
- gaining reinforcements through the number of territories held, control of every territory on each continent, and turning sets of bonus cards.
- Attacking other players using a simple combat rule of comparing the highest dice rolled for each side. Players may attack as often as desired. If one enemy territory is successfully taken, the player is awarded a bonus card.
- Moving a group of armies to another adjacent territory.
