It’s that time of year again, when normally intelligent people walk into shops and buy boardgames for Christmas, despite the obvious fact that a.) it means spending more time round the table with relatives on Christmas day, b.) they always lead to rows, and c.) nobody understands the rules after six glasses of port anyway.
Nevertheless. If you must insist on some post-turkey dice-rolling antics, how about this War On Terror boardgame? It’s described as a cross between Risk and Monopoly, except with more oil, suicide bombers, coups and a spinning Axis Of Evil that randomly decides who the bad guys are.
Be warned, though, this game could lead to Political Discussion round the Christmas dinner table. So make sure you remove the turkey carving knife before playing. BUY IT
