The article mentions "realpolitik", which doesn't turn out results that would fit with the description, but if they made 12k sales, they might be on BGG.

And a Risk where a player randomly spends a couple of turns as the terrorists? Awesome!

(edit : removed my misinterpretation Also, if the article is right, the police acted quite stupidly)

It's War on Terror. Pretty much any game that's in the -real- news will rocket up the Hot Games column on the left there.

I think you have just done that! Balaclavas are not a Muslim garment, they have been worn by all kinds of people (including terrorists, I agree).

I used to wear a balaclava as a kid on a cold winter's day on my walk to school.
Mmmm warm and snuggly.

Ah! I didn't I though that they did... English is not my first language, I mistook balaclava for a burka. Sorry... (I'll edit my first post)

Thanks for the replies!

I recently found out at a drag race track that females wearing fireproof balaclavas with just their eyes visible is very, very attractive.

Brilliant, the image of a slightly tubby, balding Gaming Geek, wearing a burka will haunt me for the rest of the day
