According to declassified info from the US, Osama Bin Laden was apparently interested in Steve Jackson's Illuminati New World Order card game.

Got me wondering what games other evil maniacs (real or fictional) would be into. I'll start it off with Kim Jong-Un.



PS- If you're interested, I found the article about Osama's "bookshelf" here: http://qz.com/408897/the-eclectic-and-paranoid-osama-bin-lad...

Kim Jong-Un would definitely always be start player, since he never powers his cities.

I'd not be surprised if this one was in Osama's top ten.

I have it on good authority that Kim Il Sung and Kim Jong Il really liked World in Flames. They designed it, even.

This not entirely serious geeklist has more details.

Osama Bin Laden would have probably liked this one as well if he was into conspiracy games.
