The Waiting Game

'Communist Monopoly' Teaches Downside of Socialist Life

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.
Too late for Christmas Winter Solstice, but the game finally arrived in stores just in time to satisfy at least some of the comrades on the waiting list. The rest of you comrades remain on the list for next Winter Solstice.

I can't wait to stand in line at the stores that no longer have it or will have it next month sometime. This will be so fun to play. Does the currency fluctuate in worth as well or that the Zimbabwe edition, "Everyone's a Trillionaire" when they buy bread.

I denounce the creators of that game! Endless lines waiting for scarce goods? What's that if not the most enlightening social(ized) life, creating strong bonds through the community?

Instead of shaming Marxism equality, we should be redistributing the houses of the creators of another even more evil board game, portraying kapitalist pigs and evil megacorps, and their practices of stealing our money: Greed Inc. ... corporated

Look at the box... depicting those despicable little green papers... shame.

Nothing warms the cockles of my heart more than to see a rich, greedy capitalist pig getting wacked by the gulag police with a club in hand, ready to spend some quality time in the Peoples Prison.

Hmmph! This "game" appears to be one-sided and does not show the good side of socialist experience, like getting to know life stories of friendly fellow-workers while waiting on line for 8 hours for loaf of bread. Or, that special rush of adrenaline when the person waiting on line ahead of you unexpectedly dies of a heart attack and you get to move up in line as soon as comrade undertaker removes the body. But don't get me wrong - life in workers' paradise was not just about the joys of waiting. There was also the thrill of hunting thru back alleys for comrade black market guy who you hoped will sell you necessities of life at 10 times the official price and not cut your throat and just take your rubles instead. And if you managed to buy something, it was one big thrill ride trying to evade secret police who want to arrest you for encouraging the illegal black market.

It is truly unfortunate this game cannot bring the total reality of existence under a benevolent regime to life especially the parts about the gulags, "psychiatric" hospitals and executions.

Comrades, our progressive fellow toilers for the masses in Poland have created a board game for the Children™ which will teach them the joys of standing in line and the rewards for knowing the right left people. Click here to see for yourself!

Didn't they invent the RUBIKUBE in Poland?

Comrade Jibaro, the kapitalist Rubik's Cube was invented in Hungary, so Poland is probably safe.
Even if it were to back fire, we countered Rubik's with the People's Cube. Have faith. The Politburo demands it.
