Product Review [unpaid]: War on Terror Game

Ok, this is awesome:
If you are looking for a way to get on the NSA watch list, this is it. Just get yourself a copy of War on Terror, the board game.

Just listen to this awesome discription:

Each player starts as an empire filled with good intentions and a determination to liberate the world from terrorists and from each other.

Then the reality of world politics kicks and terrorist states emerge.

Andrew said: "The terrorists can win and quite often do and it's global anarchy. It sums up the randomness of geo-politics pretty well."

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.

Police confiscations of this game in the UK have proven once again that you can have peace or you can have justice but in a dictatorship by committee, you probably won't get both.

While in the USA, you still have freedom of speech, so long as you don't say anything illegal.

I think I'm gonna stick with the Ren and Stimpy classic "Don't Whizz on the Electric Fence."

Like my man Ice-T said, "Freedom of speech...just watch what you say."

So weird you linked to an article about UK authorities confiscating this game...I just finished watching V for Vendetta last night. Meh.
