"Politiker ärgere dich nicht" (Boardgame)

Storytelling for Schmidt Spiele®

Our idea

Schmidt Spiele® released a thrilling politician-version of the popular classic boardgame “Mensch ärgere Dich dich®” right before the 2017 Bundestag election. On the board game everything is possible: Christian Lindner (FDP) throws Katrin Göring-Eckardt (Alliance 90 / The Greens) just before the finish and Martin Schulz (SPD) outdated Angela Merkel (CDU).

Cross-media coverage and involvement in the Bundestag – Angela Merkel signs the game live on TV. Posts by politicians such as Cem Özdemir, who plays the boardgame “Politiker ärgere dich nicht” (Politician, don’t get annoyed”  with his son.
