comment Can I create my own version of Monopoly and distribute it ?
@Joe it's also worth noting that some US states have additional IP law, such as Texas' "Trade Secret Law" (actually a collection of favorable decisions in case law, not statute nor regulation). Canada, the UK, Australia, all differ. France goes well beyond them.

comment What games are similar to Risk?
@RaYell There are at least 4 different Shogun games - The one published by Queen Games looks like risk with cubes, but is a civ-game in play. The Milton-bradley one, renamed Samurai Swords, uses d10's and is really an Axis and Allies variant more than a risk variant. Neither of which is the same as Shogun: Total War.

Green is often 20 rather than 25, especially in casual gaming or when chips are used for non-poker use.

Could, but won't, as I've no experience with them, and so adding them would violate the basic SE guidelines on how to answer.
