Commissioned By: 'TerrorBull Games' publishers. Playing cards from 'War on Terror - the boardgame'.

Purpose: BANNED by toy fairs and major retailers around the world, War on Terror, the boardgame has touched a nerve we never new existed; a nerve that is sensitive to satire, but numb to the horrors of war. While the likes of New Internationalist praised the game for its realistic vision, some find the lack of guidelines difficult to stomach. There are no goodies and baddies, no real allies, only money. And one wrong spin of the Axis of Evil and you're suddenly persona non grata. But don't panic, it's just a game. Have a look at the website: War on Terror Website
