Every Senator In America Is Getting A Copy Of ‘Secret Hitler’

Posted by February 25, 2017 Comment

In what I can only describe is the best political advertising campaign of 2017 so far, the company Goat Wolf & Cabbage who produce the popular board game Secret Hitler are taking political activism to a new level by sending every active Senator in America a copy of the game.

The company’s founder, Max Temkin, posted a video on his Twitter account Friday that the company had printed out letters to every senator saying the same thing, explaining the game and how it’s based on historical fact of how many politicians in Germany who were liberal ultimately allowed Hitler to rise to power, after being manipulated and allowing so many fascist policies to take hold of the country, until Hitler was in total control. The company even states that while the game takes place in 1930’s Germany, they hope “you and your staff might find the game relevant as you negotiate the balance of power with the Trump White House.”

It’s a bold move for a company of this type to take a political stance and possibly alienate some of its audience, but you have to applaud their efforts of using a board game to kick a bunch of suits in the backside. We’re anxious to see how many actually play the game, keep it, speak on it, or simply garbage it.
