Description

How can one determine how many armies are needed to conquer or to defend a territory in the board game Risk ? The notebook starts with the basic probabilities of a single round of Attack vs Defense, then works out the probabilities of conquering a territory. For a 90% chance of conquering a territory the Attackers should be 3 times the Defenders plus 1.
