Funnily enough, it's all because the pluralisation of TVs was missed in the first translation (French), and some very explicit interpretation caused by a portuguese grammar quirk.
Start -> French -> Eng: "We must move these refridgerators. We must move the these color TV"
That -> German -> Eng: "We must shift these colour television set".
That -> Italian -> Eng: "We must move this the color television set".
That -> Portuguese -> Eng: "We must move this the game of television of the color".

I feel cheated about that screw up.

Translating "set" to "game" is weird indeed. "set" should be "conjunto" in Portuguese, not "jogo". But the translation program seems to use Brazilian Portuguese, and I've heard Brazilians say "jogo de xadrez" with the same meaning as "chess set", so maybe it comes from there.

Xocrates wrote:What demented kind of Portuguese dictionary are they using? It translates mother as "matrix".

Well, "matrix" translates directly to Portuguese as "matriz", which can also mean "relating to the/a mother". Still I second your demented, as it is a very flimsy link.
I think it comes from the difference in capitalization. "mum" and "mother" give two completely different things.

I've just ruined all the fun, no? :roll:

With civilians looking on total awe

Now some Introversion quotes (awesome topic, had to resurrect it):

Darwinia: Please try not to harm or scare the native Darwinians

You do not ask with darwiniens for NATO that they damage nor not to
scare the attempt,

Video game design with soul

The material that judged that the additional version of the intuition
of the sensitivity of the disposition for the judgment conceives the
game of the calculation of the software of the meditation the brains,
the thoughts introverted

Unfortunately, DEFCON 1 doesn't translate into anything.
