The social deduction tabletop game Secret Hitler has been pulled from three Montreal game stores following complaints from the Jewish human rights group B’nai Brith Canada.
If you’re unfamiliar with Secret Hitler, this social deduction tabletop game was first released in 2017. The product of a successful Kickstarter campaign, the game divides a group of 5–10 players into Liberals and Fascists.
According to the game’s rules [PDF], the Liberals attempt to maintain the rule of law and keep things all nice and peaceful while the Fascists attempt to get Hitler installed as Chancellor. The Liberals win the game if five Liberal policies are passed or Hitler is assassinated, and the Fascist team wins if six Fascist policies are enacted or Hitler is elected Chancellor any time after the third Fascist policy has passed.
The game is understandably controversial considering its content, and now it has been removed…
