"Risk" Board Game to Become a Movie

Posted: November 4th, 2009 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
"Risk" Board Game to Become a MovieSubmit Comment
Sony Pictures has acquired the film rights to the classic board game "Risk," which was invented in 1957 by French filmmaker Albert Lamorisse as "La Conquete du Monde" (Conquest of the World). Two years later, in 1959, Parker Brothers (now a division of Hasbro) published the game we all came to know as "Risk."

"Risk" was unique because it introduced groundbreaking game concepts. It was the first board game to offer non-linear movement. Although the rules were simple enough, the strategies required to win the game were not. "Risk" pushed the envelope and remained unmatched by any other game on the shelf; quickly becoming a phenomenon with millions of units sold throughout the world.

Since that time, nearly a dozen different variations of "Risk" have mapped out battles in the "Star Wars" universe, Middle-earth, Narnia, the moon, and various periods in world history.
