Bürokratopoly, awarded from the Federal Agency for Civic Education,
is an educational game from a historical context: In 1983 Martin Böttger
invented »a parlour game with a negative-hostile character that shows
alleged ways to gain and lose power in the GDR«. This is how the Staatssicherheit security service described the game in their files. The aim of the players is to move up from a simple worker to general secretary.
The DDR Museum revised the game together with educators and game experts and created supplementary educational material.
The educational game Bürokratopoly is only available in German.
