Venture is a Risk variant. The map consists of provinces and each is occupied by one of the four players (either human or AI controlled). The participants take turns and can choose to attack any province which has its border near an owned territory. The result is both influenced by random chance and how many troops are in the defending and attacking province. After all players made their attacks, they receive reinforcements (the number depends on how many and which provinces they hold) which can be freely divided on owned provinces.

The game features five scenarios (stone age, middle ages, pirates, World War II and space) and the AI controlled characters are fictional or real personalities from these times, e.g. the pirate Jack Borrow or Erwin Rommel. Various settings can be customized before starting a new match, e.g. difficulty, the number of reinforcements or if the setup is random (faster) or if all players take turns to choose their starting provinces. Besides the classic domination (trying to conquer everything), there is an alternative game mode in which players need to protect their capital.
