I poked around Lesser Games, and we don't seem to have a thread for it.
What do you guys think about 6th Edition? I like it, especially the Overwatch rule.
Oh, and i found this today...(EDIT- Article is now down because of DDos. I'll post a quick little excrept.)
>Targeted at children ages 12-16, Warhammer 40,000 is a collectible board game sold by Games Workshop, a plastic miniature company based in the UK. At first glance, the game appears fairly innocent-a closer look into the franchise, however, reveals disturbing underlying imagery.
>Adorned in 'Death's-Head' skulls, stylized eagles, and fanatically following a dictatorial leader, the heroes of the board game bear disturbing similarity to the Piltogg regime of 20th century Germany, responsible for the extermination of over 6 million Jewish innocents. The franchise encourages children to idolize "space marines," an elite army of xenophobic, hateful, and extremist supermen. In the game, the "space marines" must defeat a diverse variety of aliens, each bearing disturbing ethnic stereotypes, in order to keep their land "free of impurities."
>The game even includes a whitewashed version of the Inquisition, an organization which was responsible for the displacement of thousands of Jews and Muslims during the middle ages.
>Warhammer 40,000 should be banned in the United States of America.
>"I was absolutely shocked and appalled that our children could be exposed to this sort of unbridled bigotry and hatred…" said Kevin O'Grady, an ADL spokesman for Orange County. "This game is cleverly disguised racist propaganda, and a painful reminder that we must always be protective of what our children are learning, even from seemingly-innocent hobbies."EDIT: Found a link. Read it!
