2006dec31. Just spoke to a friend of mine. He was part of a three-person team that created the board game “Bootleggers,” which deals with the business opportunities created when a government goes on a morality kick to save people from themselves and bans a potable liquid. It was a hybrid European/American style game, so naturally they were eyeing the German/Italian market. When the game got over there, there was a problem – they didn’t know what “bootlegging” was, and they had no similar word for it. My friend said they would have done much better if they called it “American Gangster Bang-Bang!”
