The Independent magazine have included War on Terror in their list of '50 Best Board Games' - at no.5, no less! "A game with attitude ... "

More than the fact that it's our game, it makes me happy to see this kind of thing getting a mentionThe list's getting a bit of a panning online in the comments section, most likely from Board Game Geek purists that want the entire world to wake up to the rational and balanced beauty of German games. They have a point - there are many undiscovered gems that never get the exposure they deserve and this for them is a wasted opportunity. But the criticisms seem a little harsh - the 'Indy Best' lists never claim to be definitive and because of their desire to cater to everyone, are always full of glaring omissions.

We have to admit, we'd normally join in the sneering - or not even bother. But the inclusion of WoT is a pretty radical move, even for the Independent. Compared with the other games in that list, WoT is a truly independent release, fairly subversive, relatively hard to find and not to everyone's taste. More than the fact that it's our game, it makes me happy to see this kind of thing getting a mention.

And to right the wrong, here is a short list of some great games that you might want to try with your family if you're wondering if there's life outside Monopoly:
