RISK is a board game created by Albert Lamorisse in 1957. It was originally distributed in France by the name of La Conquête du Monde. In 1959 Parker Brothers brought the game to America under the name RISK. Currently Hasbro owns Parker Brothers and the copyright for the game RISK. There have been many variations of the game throughout the years, and now thanks to the internet, we can move from the table and play online with people around the planet!
