Lucia Communist board game

Experience communism in a new Polish board game similar to Monopoly.

Players try to buy basic goods but food supplies run out before they reach the counter. If a bed is needed, they may be offered stools instead. Players needing the shop's last pair of shoes can get edged out by someone holding a "mother with small child" or "friend in government" card.

"We may laugh at it today, but it was not funny for them, when they were wasting their lives in lines."
