About This Quiz

The world is a messy place, full of powerful morons, influential idiots and just a general rabble of people unqualified to run things. You could do their jobs so much better than them! Do you know what you should do? You should conquer the whole world so you can run everything! Then things will be perfect!

But where to start? Conquering the whole world requires the greatest war strategy ever devised, and a big part of that strategy will be around what you want to preserve, what you want to cultivate and what you think are the most important things. If you plan on taking the world by force, then the first places you conquer may be destroyed, along with their museums, universities, etc. If you plan to begin your conquest with soft power, that place may be the only place that is preserved. Either way, you have to take a long look at your endgame in order to work your way back to square one.

We are eager to have our place in history beside your name, so we will counsel you on where to begin your epic conquest of the planet. Just take our brief quiz and we will tell you where your bloody, real-life game of Risk will begin!
