Sunday Die Macher!?!
- Yep it's me again, still begging for a player or two to fill out to
five in Die Macher this Sunday, July 1st. For those that don't know Die
Macher is one of the most "involved" of the German style games there
is. It has a few subsystems that all come together around the theme of
the German electoral system. You represent one of the parties in that
system and by manipulating your party's stand on various issues and the
media, using some underhanded means of manipulating your opponents'
parties, publishing polls, allying with your opponents when needed,
taking money from special interests, etc. you strive to become the
victor. While the learning curve is a bit steeper than most of these
games we play once you've got it you'll be surprised how easily it
flows. It's all actually fairly intuitive.
It's a negotiation game but there's really no backstabbing involved,
just cut-throat politics! No, no, just kidding, it's more along the
lines of how can I get ahead by climbing in bed with so and so.
Start time is 1pm (sharp! And that means you Campbell! ;-)),
location is in Norwood MA, right off route 1 just a couple of miles
north of the Walpole Mall and conveniently located near an Outback
Steakhouse for dinner afterwards. So far I've got myself, Matt H,
Campbell, possibly Bill R and we're looking for a 5th (and possibly a
fill in for Bill since I haven't heard back from him after he expressed
interest on Tuesday).
Email me and I'll fill in the details.
