A War On Terror board game designed in Cambridge has been seized by police who claim the balaclava in the set could be used in a criminal act.

The satirical board game was confiscated along with knives, chisels and bolt cutters, from climate protesters during a series of raids near Kingsnorth power station, in Kent, last week.

I wonder why the reporter didn't also interview the designer/manufacturer of the knives, chisels, and bolt cutters as well? Would have been just as relevant.

Because the game is far more dangerous.

It's the game that teaches people how to use the knives, chisels and bolt cutters. It's in the rules, right next to how to suffocate someone with the balaclava.

Local interest. The designers are from Cambridge.

Right on!

More power to the authorities! Risk taught me how to take over the world (I only wish my wrist was strong enough to roll the dice) and Clue taught me how to swing a candlestick in the library in order to commit a murder!
