...to remind them of how socialism always turns out. This board game will give goofy and intercst a glimpse of what things will be like when they've succeeded in abolishing evil corporations and putting benevolent government in charge of everything.

Polish game recreates communist shopping hell

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-12380433

Poles have been queuing to buy a new board game called "Kolejka" (The Queue), which recreates the tedious shopping experience of communist-era Poland. "We hope it will show young Poles how difficult it was to buy everyday supplies like sugar, bread or furniture," said Karol Madaj, the game's designer.

The game comes in a box designed to look like it was wrapped in brown paper and tied with string. On top is a coupon, which the communist authorities issued so they could ration items like meat.

Between two and five players compete to be the first to buy the 10 items on their shopping list.... The problem is that the shelves in the neighbourhood shops are empty and players must queue without knowing which store will soon get a delivery.

That's silly. Socialism just hasn't been run by the right people yet. Goofy would do a much better job.
