"Black is now enslaved by white."

That's bad enough, but then...

"Just as well, really, they're so primitive they need the boost it'll give them."

(It's true - in this game, there's no player elimination, instead the population is enslaved - and shares it's slaver's advancements, until it's freed by revolution or collapse.)

Since the NECA reboot:

"White Power"

*edit to explain* NECA added statistic cards to each of the heroes to explain there powers. If a character had a special power they just put a colored square around one of the numbers on their click wheel. You read the card to know what that power is. The most powerful special character powers were just a black line not colored in at all. These became known as "White powers."

We play our D&D game at another table while the clix players are there and we constantly here about how "great their white power is."

My favorite such memory was when a frustrated player named Randy ejaculated "I can't reach Climax!" during a game of Colorado Rails.

("Climax" is one of the cities on the map; see the photo.)

It may be unintentional, but some people would not stop laughing.

"I've already taken a chit."
"Who's chit is that?"
"Why in God's good name did you move that chit?"

Needless to say I play with some immature gamers, but I can be just as guilty.

It's happened multiple times, when I've been examining where to place my new element on the board. I look at one of my opponents boards and say "oh, I don't have to worry about you, you don't have any nuts."

Totally unintentional.

Not so much heard as read, but... The names of the unit values in this game use the original Italian abbreviations. So the Basic Unit value is VBU, Heavy infantry are FP, etc.

As a result, Demoralisation Value is VD. Every unit in this game has VD, of some level or another...

First time I played this game there was an older woman with the group, over the course of the game she said several offensive things.

"Aggghhh there are blacks everywhere!"

"The blacks are overrunning the capitol!"

After one of us had killed several minions out of the capitol...

"Yeah! Now keep those blacks out of our town!"

I kept telling her, but she just kept on with the offensive statements.

While working at the group home last week, a dad(visiting his child) saw this on the table and said, "Whoa cool! What's this?"

I gave a brief rundown of the [hi]story and what some of the pieces represented.

He said "Ahh, so it's pretty much a simpler version of Risk."

He wasn't playing the game. Nothing that was said was politically incorrect, sexist, racist, etc. But hot damn was I ever offended! Or maybe just sickened. Or maybe just saddened. Or maybe all of these. shake
