War on Terror – The Boardgame

Now everyone can fight the ‘War on Terror’ in the comfort of their own home by playing the War on Terror boardgame:

It’s got suicide bombers, political kidnaps and intercontinental war. It’s got filthy propaganda, rampant paranoia and secret treaties …

… and the Axis of Evil is a spinner in the middle of the board. You can fight terrorism, you can fund terrorism, you can even be the terrorists. The only thing that matters is global domination – err, liberation.

I particularly like the oil factor:

Everyone starts with the best intentions. Then things start to get cramped. Then you notice your neighbour has more oil than you. Before long, war is waged, nukes are dropped, revolutions are fought and terrorists are doing your dirty work, before turning on you…

Evidently some folks in the UK developed this game over a period of two years after observing how lies and hypocrisy, among other things, were being used to justify the ‘War on Terror’ and the invasion of Iraq – as if these deceitful ploys were the rules of some sort of twisted game. I commend them on a job well done.

    I thought of making a board game called “War on Terror” a few months ago. It wouldn’t be too entertaining though because it NEVER ends… ever.

    Ah, but our game does have an ending… Either an Empire wins, the Terrorists win or sometimes you even have World Peace.

    That said, we do have ‘the long war’ version of the rules which no one has ever finished yet.

    I am awaiting the coalition of do-gooder americans to protest the game… I do believe had this game been invented by someone in America over the last 6 years they woulda got “judged”…

    Ahhh the tolerance of europe… and the friggin ignorance and ineptitude here. The shameful drone mentality we have adopted.

    It’s disgusting.

    Reminds me of a board game I used to play, Cults Across America.
