It’s a decade-old game about German politics. Who’d guess that it would be such a good game and so popular!
Players are political parties managing their limited resources, bidding, bluffing and negotiating in a battle for seats in seven regional German elections. Multiple mechanics work seamlessly together to simulate the competition, cooperation, manipulation and betrayal involved in the quest for power.
This game is big, has a ton of great components and is something that ever gamer should own.
