‘Construction & Corruption’ board game launched
December 21, 2017 – A new Canadian board game, Construction & Corruption, sees bribery and doing as little work as possible as the main factors in successful contracting.
The Montreal-based developers describe it as a negotiation game where players bribe, cajole and convince each other. “No bribes or promises are binding,” they said.
The basic premise is that the less work you complete, the more you get paid. The longer you keep – or delay – your contracts, the more money you will receive. As the summary says: “But be careful! Too much money and not enough work can carry the stink of corruption, which might bring about a federal investigation! But even worse than that, success carries the sting of jealousy, and other players may try to attack you well before the cops find out!”
