I'm Andrew Sheerin, I designed the 'War on Terror' boardgame a few years back that got siezed by the police and generated death threats. Luckily, my follow-up game is about a safer topic - religion. AMA!
I'm a game design and co-founder of TerrorBull Games - we're a traditional games company that designs and produces what are called "radical games". But we don't think they're radical, we're just trying to do with boardgames what people have been doing for years with films, plays, books, dance, insert-your-chosen-form-of-creative-expression-here. In short, we believe games should be thought-provoking and fun, in fact they're at their best when they are.
Our new game has just been launched, called The Hen Commandments. In it you are the disciple of a holy chicken, trying to interpret its confused commandments. And you get to create a brand new religion while doing so!
Anyway, ask me whatever you want - board game design, death threats, getting banned, the UN anti-terrorist directive requesting a game of War on Terror.... whatever you like. And last time I did this, you were far too nice. How about some trickier questions this time - like how do I square my anti-capitalist stance with a mass-market model of production? Aren't I just preaching to the converted? What about the environmental impact of producing a load of plastic crap that'll end up in the landfill one day? Let's see your teeth!
Edit: OK, my fingers are starting to cramp, I better call it a wrap. Thank you very much for your kind, thought-provoking, intelligent, supportive and even insulting questions. It's been fun - and some of the best questions I've ever received. Two great things have come out of this: First, I'm kind of inspired to kickstart a reprint of War on Terror at some point; I had no idea there was still such appetite for it. If you're really desperate - forgive the plug - the 'high priest' level of our Hen Commandments kickstarter includes one of the last 100 War on Terror sets as a reward. Secondly, because this made the front page, Fox news want to interview me. Hah! That's the greatest gift anyone can give.
