When I’m not writing columns and shaking my fist at the sky (same thing, some say) I’ve been designing a boardgame.
“A President for Europe” is a slightly tongue-in-cheek game where players are party leaders in a future European Union battling it out to be elected President of Europe.
Who will win, and can they stay in power? Or will the Russians rig the whole thing? This is a game of high politics and low tactics, doing deals, carving up votes and trying to stop the other leaders stabbing you in the back…if it wasn’t illegal, I’d insist it be played in a smoke-filled backroom.
Design and testing is still going on, with a provisional plan for it to go on sale at the end of the year. Watch this space.
Drop me an email (see link above) if you want to be kept informed.
