Curt Schilling irks Native American groups with board game


A company part-owned by Curt Schilling is developing a board game in which English colonists are pitted against Native American tribes. Titled "King Philip's War," the game is based on events in a conflict between the 1600's involving the two groups.
Native American groups aren't too happy with the game's developer, MultiMan Publishing, to halt production. It may have something to do with a die players can use to generate "different combat scenarios, such as an ambush, massacre or spying."
So far, Curt Schilling isn't backing down.

"But Schilling, who won World Series with the Arizona Diamondbacks and Boston Red Sox, said historical events should not be whitewashed for fear of offending someone. King Philip's War helped forge early American identity, even if it "clearly exposed the horrible side of humans in some cases," he said.

"If everyone intent on keeping historical events stopped at content that might seem offensive, we'd lose sight of the horrific mistakes this nation, the world and the human race are capable of, and that would be a horrific thing," Schilling said in an e-mail sent through his publicist."


It doesn't look like the protests will stop Schilling's company from releasing the game. I'm still waiting for the "Curt Schilling Put the Blood on the Sock" game myself.
