Communist Monopoly ‘Queue’ to encourage competitive bread buying



Officials at the Research Institute in Poland have come up with the concept, which will see players tasked with buying a list of essential items like bread and toilet paper.
Rather than try to force other players into bankruptcy, though, Queue will encourage them to line up in an orderly fashion to get into state-owned shops.
Doesn’t have quite the same ring to it as building a property empire, does it?
Still, the game’s creator Karol Madaj believes it will be a valuable educational tool – and fun too… probably.
‘The game not only makes players understand shopping in Poland under communism. It also teaches them what queueing is like – something people seem to have forgotten,’ he said.
Sounds brilliant, right?
Instead of Chance and Community Chest, players will draw wild cards that can be positive – getting them sent to the front of the queue because of a Communist Party connection – or negative, such as seeing a shop closed down for ‘decadence’.
Get ready for some wild game night parties when this baby hits the shelves.
