Have y'all heard about this game?

For the link impaired:

Train is a board game that, at least initially, tasks players with getting as many yellow game pieces from one end of the game board to the other. In an average turn, the player can choose to move their train forward, put more people into the train, draw a card, or take a card. After reaching the end of the track with one train, the player draws a card revealing the destination they've arrived at.
All of the possible destinations are concentration camps. Auschwitz, Dachau. Brathwaite described the moment of realization as "a fall from a hundred feet up," once the now-victorious player realizes what he or she has just done.


Apparently people have broken out into tears once the destination card gets flipped.

Next . . . the Rick Rolled game. But don't tell anyone what the surprise ending is!

I think the concept behind the game is great BUT this can only be played once, since once you know the twist, the game loses the surprise element.

To be honest, i just don't see the point of this.
