The whole RISK thing

Postby KoolBak on Tue Apr 24, 2018 8:30 am

I recall the big snafu when Hasbro threatened the site and we claimed not to be risk related, etc. Well I use Bing as a search engine by default (earn a $5 gift card at Amazon about once a month for doing so) and when you type in conquer club there, our site comes up saying PLAY RISK ONLINE FREE....

Interesting.....do we WANT Hasbro to come thundering down again?

That's because you binged it. It's bill gates related, hasbro can't tell anything otherwise they could get in trouble with the FBI. Just don't do that on google.

It’ll always come up as a search term for CC. But if you look at the landing page you find:

Originally inspired by the board game RISK™, Conquer Club has taken Risk online, expanding the concept to include over 200 maps, playing bots, casual and speed games, numerous gameplay options, tournaments, clans and more! So now you can play a game like Risk online with many thousands of other players and an endless variety of styles.

If you wish to play casually, a few minutes per day is all that is required. If you want to delve deeper, Conquer Club offers many options for hardcore strategy game players and online Risk experts.

——

There are other places as well that says CC is not associated with risk or hasbro in anyway, and our classic has been changed from the original board.

I don’t claim to be an expert but all the safety precautions lack took are still in place far as I know

Risk written like that is not reffering to the trademark.
A bitcoin trading platform is a game of online risk too, in a way.

"Conquer Club is not associated with RISK™ online in any way. Copyright © 2006-2015 by Big Wham LLC"

here they are reffering to the trademark. in your other quote, that's like, your interpretation that he's talking about the hasbro game dude. You got lots of imagination for sure.
