Description Edit | History

The world's most notorious board game just got a facelift!

Since its launch in 2006, many notable individuals and publications have identified War on Terror, the boardgame - the first release from the independent TerrorBull Games as uniquely important to the present era. University lecturers have used it in the classroom. PHD theses have cited and analysed the game and recently the second largest daily newspaper in Spain, El Mundo, claimed that War on Terror is "perhaps the best board game in the world and maybe of all time". This new edition builds on the success of the first, bringing the themes of the war on terror up-to-date and adding new interest and playability to the game.

This second edition includes a tonne of new artwork (there are twice as many illustrations on the box cover alone) and many juicy new elements: 10 new cards, "Indigenous Terrorists" and a new, possible ending to the game: "Holy Nuclear Armageddon" (spectacular, but very messy).

The rules in general have been tweaked, but not drastically rewritten. The rounds have been sped up and the gameplay overall is kinder to those players who like to have medium or longterm strategies. The terrorist player also has a few more choices and so is more interesting/rewarding to play. There is still plenty of the fun and happy chaos that permeates the original though, don't worry.

For a full, detailed list of the new cards and the new rules, check out the website: http://www.waronterrortheboardgame.com/rules/
