Sure, it’s meant to be satirical, but still..the War on Terror at home? Seems someone has come up with a way for everyday average citizens to get involved in the War on Terror by playing a board game. You can be the dirty politician, the big oil man or the terrorists themselves…but either way you get to play your own version of the game the government is busy playing. Even though it’s obviously an anti-war game, I still don’t think we should downplay what our troops are going through because of this war. You can be the judge though – check out the site for the game at War On Terror The Board Game. From the site:
We don’t know what will happen in the world, but all we ask for in playing War on Terror, the boardgame, is open-mindedness. Instead of expressing knee-jerk horror and outrage at the casual and indiscriminate funding of terrorism in our game, accompanied, as it is, by tongue-in-cheek humour, think about real-world events. Think about what separates a terrorist act from a sanctioned act. One takes place within the rules and one without. And who writes the rules?
