War On Terror board game seized by police (via Schneier) Discuss Next post
"Surely no member of the public is going to believe that a board game could be used as a weapon?"
War on Terror, similar to games like Risk, revolves around creating empires that compete and wage war.
But there is a twist - players can poke fun at the rhetoric of world leaders like George Bush and Tony Blair...
In their cardboard version of realpolitik George Bush's "Axis of Evil" is reduced to a spinner in the middle of the board, which determines which player is designated a terrorist state.
That person then has to wear a balaclava (included in the box set) with the word "Evil" stitched on to it.
