I just saw this, and had to check the date to make sure it wasn't an April Fool's joke.

That site tried to save 62 cookies on my PC.

Quote :
the game encourages players to become obsessed with mentally escaping the restrictions of prison life, which could threaten “the safety and security of the institution.”
Concern about mental escape smacks of totalitarian thinking. And anything can be said to threaten safety and security--a catch-all rationale for treating people like mere things.

And doesn't Risk pose a threat because it encourages inmates to think about plotting the armed takeover of the world?
