Box continues to encourage creativity and innovation with its ongoing parade of challenges, competitions, and hackathons. Its latest quest to engage the developer community arrives in the form of a Risk-inspired online battle: BRISK. BRISK started as a typical Box challenge; however, to date it has developed into its "own wondrous virtual world, complete with it’s own servers, it’s own API and it’s own set of rules."
