A "Holy Sh!t WTF!" Kickstarter - Nazi history monopoly (I Sh!t You Not)


Uhm, right.

Nazi history monopoly. But according to update #1, the game has nothing to do with Hasbro, Monopoly, cute and disturbing as hell Hitler heads nor history as we know it. Alright, I'm assuming the last part. Maybe it will be a riff of Man in the High Castle. Or not.

But what is this game actually about then?


Yep, because the Hitler Channel has cut back on Hitler History and replaced it with Pawn Stars. Neo-Nazi board game anyone? I can only imagine what replaces utilities.

How much for the game? 55 bucks. How much does she want to raise? $50,000.

Yes Kickstarter, there does need to be a vetting process...

Tip of the hat to Marci Deleon over in the Kicksnarker G+ Community.

    2. I worked PAX Prime for CAH, and they were set up in their pavilion giving demos. Really hilarious guys and SO NOT Nazis. The game is a blast.

  4. I reported this to Kickstarter on Friday. They are definitely aware it exists and claim they've vetted it and that it's legit. Here's a screencap of the email exchange.

    1. Excuse the typos in the screenshot. My Galaxy Note was recently stolen and I was using a tiny iPhone to write the email :/

  5. Go directly to Auschwitz, do not pass Gehen!, do not collect 200 Reichsmarks. When in Auschwitz, roll a die. On a 1, you escape. On any other result, you meet an unspeakable fate and are out of the game. All your properties and money go back to the banker, as if you were never in the game. Nobody is even to speak of you again.

    Nobody is "Just Visiting" Auschwitz. It is instead "A place in otherwise lovely Oberschlesien with nothing to see."

    1. To escape, you probably have to roll 2d6 and get a 1...

  7. Every thing that mentions Hitler/Nazis is AFAIK only illegal in Germany itself. Glad you guys weren't around when Hogan's Heroes was on.

    That "see full bio" part was pretty sad. If that's her story (and writing style) this will disappear on its own and hopefully she'll move on to something happier and healthier with her life.

  8. I am working on a WWII special forces (OSS, SOE, Jedburghs, etc.) game right now using the Swords & Wizardry rules titled WWII: Operation WhiteBox. Maybe I should make it anime and commission her for the art. Happy Happy Hitler Time! So so Fun!

  10. Where's a Morpheus meme that says "what if I told you that Germany has thousands of years of history?" when you need one?
