Picks and Pans Review: Capital Punishment

UPDATED 12/07/1981 at 01:00 AM EST Originally published 12/07/1981 at 01:00 AM EST

The inventors, two young Maryland businessmen, last year marketed Public Assistance, whose board contains paths called "Able-Bodied Welfare Recipient's Promenade" and "Working Person's Rut." The game was denounced by blacks and feminists. Whether it expressed red-neck prejudice or parodied it, Public Assistance led to this follow-up, in which players try to keep "innocent citizens" from being wiped out by "criminals" whom "liberals" have sprung from prison. The game is less interesting than discussing whether the person who bought it is reactionary ($15).
