Playing History has developed in cooperation with the Stasi Archives (BStU) and the DDR Museum a game with 48-pages of accompanying material, which can be played in educational institutions of all kinds as well as at home.
Background: November 1989. Under the pressure of the civil movement, the GDR leadership has to retreat further and further. The dictatorship is in an open crisis, from which it will not recover. The Ministry for State Security was not unaffected by this. Even before the Fall of the Berlin Wall, the destruction of documents is ordered by Minister Erich Mielke on 6 November.
In the game, the players change perspective and work for the Stasi. The goal is to destroy as many documents as possible before the citizens bring about the inevitable end.
This card game is suitable for 2-5 players. It can be unpacked immediately and participants can begin playing without reading a game manual beforehand. The rules are self-explanatory, which makes the game attractive for more inexperienced players.
