I want to play. Maybe someone can get this for our next Portland Fark party?

That does sound a little more fun than the game of "Overt Hitler" that we've all been trapped in for months.
 
2017-09-06 04:14:39 AM  
It is fun.

Though, I was hoping the headline was referring to the other secret Hitler game, where you, while talking to somebody, surreptitiously make a two-finger Hitler 'stache and a Hail Hitler salute, without them realizing what you're doing.

It's best when a co-worker knows what's happening, but your boss doesn't...

I wish I had enough friends of family to play this.

Friends have never been my forte. (LOOOOONG story)

And I have alienated all of my family within a 250 mile radius.

It's sucks being the 'liberal' black sheep of the family.

'liberal' in quotes because I'm not a 'true liberal'

I just simply have waaaaaay more liberal leanings than I do conservative.

"I advised them not to call it that," said Luke Crane, Kickstarter's head of games. "I said don't call it that. My exact words were perhaps a bit more colorful."


Perhaps they could rename it "Secret Trump."

you actually got trump stickers if you backed it in the kickstarter, so you really could change the game to "Secret Trump"

Cagey B: That does sound a little more fun than the game of "Overt Hitler" that we've all been trapped in for months.


Yeah, right.  If you were trapped in a game of "Overt Hitler" for real, you couldn't actually say that without fear of being placed under arrest and being sent to a place like Dachau (opened just 2 months after Hitler was appointed Chancellor).

Claiming the current Republican president (or whoever the current Republican candidate happens to be) is literally Hitler marks you as a hysterical moron.  And it's counter-productive, because if there every really happens to be one, no one will believe you because you cried "Wolf!" *EVERY*FARKING*ELECTION* since the end of WWII.  Literally.

When she did that, I honestly couldn't believe it. It was about as obvious as you could get. I'm not sure if she did it on purpose, with the wave after so she could say "Oh you silly liberals, seeing things and making up stories!"  Or if she did it, realized what it looked like, and hastily waved because she knew she was about to be a meme.

If only that's as outrageous as it got. How native I was to think it might be.

careful man, ditty doesn't like having the president referred to as his boy. He objects to many things the Trump does, even though he defends the administration's actions regardless.

It's pretty good for a re-skin of "Avalon". If you have people at your table who can get into a little role-playing, it's a hoot.

"Guys, I swear I'm not Hitler. I just need to borrow some gasoline and matches for my party in the Reichstag building tomorrow. We're playing... go fish."

Furthermore, ditty could echo those sentiments at work and more than likely get a pat on the back.  If you made any statement at work supporting Nazis (literal Nazis, not the anybody I disagree with usage), you would be shiatcanned instantly.  Neither would get you prosecuted by the government because we still have free speech.  But we are further away from Hitler by a thousand miles than we are not.

Hitler didn't fire up the gas chambers and ovens overnight. He was just a guy that swore he was going to put Germany first and make it great again.  Just as soon as they dealt with the damn undesirables that were making it harder for hard working Germans to live and work, and told all those meddling foreign nations to stay out of it.

I'd rather stop the need comparison here, before we start having Presidential supported Nazis marching in the streets and threatening the locals with violence. Oh, wait...

You know damn well it was more than a screen grab while someone was talking. She turned, thrusted her hand out and paused with a stoic look on her face, then smiled and turned into a wave.

I'd still put the better money on it being a mistake, just a wave to the middle distance that paused an uncomfortable amount of time before she realized what it looked like. But let's not pretend that those screen grabs were in the same ballpark. Hell, they had to cut off Obama's hand just to make it look right.

But Secret Hitler benefited from another, unforeseen trend: a significant surge in interest in fascism around the 2016 election

'Secret Hitler' sounds like a deodorant.
"Strong enough for a genocidal dictator, but made for a woman."

Funny how the game has the liberals as the opponents of Hitler.  Bigger government, government control over business, redistribution of wealth, and violence against those who disagree with their model is all very leftist.  There's a reason why Nazi includes "Socialist".
