Der Spiegel writes today about a brilliant idea of a Polish research institute – a Monopoly-like game – to teach young people about communism. Here is how the German publication describes this idea:
A Polish research institute has developed a board game to teach young people about life under Communism. In the game, which is inspired by Monopoly, players must wait in endless lines at stores for scarce goods. For added realism, they have to put up with people cutting in line and products running out — unless they have a “colleague in the government” card.
