War on Terror: The Boardgame

An independent group of game developers has just released a new German-style board game called War On Terror. It looks like an absolutely hilarious (and horribly cynical) "simulation" of the modern war on terror, complete with oil dominating world politics, countries funding terrorism illicitly, random accusations of who's the axis of evil today, and an evil balaclava. Go read their short summary of how to play the game for more, and then go look at their Empire Cards and Terrorist Cards. For even more information (including reviews and pictures), check out the Board Game Geek War on Terror page.

I normally don't like wargame-style board games, but I think I might just make an exception for this one. Now if only I didn't have to pay for shipping from England ...
