Imitation - game copies from the GDR Michael Geithner and Martin Thiele were born in the GDR. But they only spent their earliest childhood in the workers 'and peasants' state. They do not remember the divided Germany. They remembered the board and card games of their childhood, handmade unique items that suddenly disappeared after the fall of the Berlin Wall. It was only some time ago that Geithner and Thiele understood: The imitation games tell in an unusual way about everyday life in the GDR. Under the title Imitation Game Copies from the GDR, Thiele and Geithner have been collecting board games since May 2011, which GDR citizens recreated with scissors, glue and a lot of imagination. An idea turned into a collection with over 125 games, which are presented for the first time in a publication: On 156 pages they travel back to the gaming landscape of the GDR and show hundreds of color photographs of handmade games such as Monopoly, Heimlich & Co., Sagaland and many more . In addition, the reader will find historical documents, Stasi files, interviews with game makers and texts by renowned authors, including: Stefan Wolle (Scientific Director of the DDR Museum), Bernward Thole (founding member of the Game of the Year), Cynthia Schönfeld (Director of the Deutsches SPIELEmuseum Chemnitz), Sebastian Wenzel (freelance journalist, zupieler.de).).
