Stalin, never totally understanding the game, picked "Dynamite".

Oh man.... I remember seeing that mock-up back when the trial was going on. It was so funny. "Pen Missile!"

"You don't know Tiger Claw?"

Right. On the other Hand, WWII-Cosims would be pretty boring, though.

Does anyone remember a band of yesteryear called 'Frankie Goes to Hollywood'...well they had this song called 'When Two Tribes Go to War'...the accompanying film clip had a boxing ring with a Ronald Reagan lookalike and a Yuri Andropov lookalike (that should date it..and me) belting the crap out of each other in front of a baying mob...I remember thinking at the time "That's the way to do it!"...a perfectly safe and entertaining alternative...

The sketch is from That Mitchell and Webb Look http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/That_Mitchell_and_Webb_Look

They originally did this sketch on the radio http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/That_Mitchell_and_Webb_Sound ,and I think that version was a little funnier. Don't know if it's online anywhere, though.

A T-Shirt company here in Australia was going to make a T-Shirt with this on it (or similar), but were stopped for some reason I can't recall.

Would have been more amusing than the pithy tops you see wandering around now.

Cheers,

Giles.

Probably because there was some swastikas on the picture...

See no evil, hear no evil, etc.. shake

I've always wondered what it would be like to watch Hitler and Churchill play a game of Rise and Decline of the Third Reich.

That's easy to envision.

The reason the Nazis lost is simple: whenever they got into really deep strategic planning, some fool would halt the whole discussion by crying

"Godwin's Law!"

Wow, so you mean that the actual method of determining the outcome was in fact even more simplistic than Axis & Allies: Europe ? Who'da thunk it?

I imagine because of the swastika in the picture. They were probably afraid it would be promoting Nazism. Oh well, it doesn't stop the individual from creating such a shirt for themselves.
