“Communist” Monopoly makes bread the currency of choice

Wednesday, 26 January, 2011

Queue, a new board game that is being hailed as the communist equivalent of Monopoly, was recently launched in Poland. Whereas Monopoly’s objective is to ultimately buy up every property on the board, while bankrupting other players in the process, the aim of Queue is to acquire as many basic food and household items, such as bread and toilet paper, as possible.

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.
