.... or better: card game!
Mensch ärgere dich nicht (the German version of Ludo) turns 100 this year *whohoo* which means a lot of game variants. I was involved in three of these and I'm pretty excited to see these in stores.
The card game includes 40 table cards with 40 different characters plus "number" cards you actually play with. My editor gave me an idea list and I mulled several weeks over the final look. The shape is (roughly) based on the "Pöppel" you normally use in Mädn and they look like this:spieltz.de/blog/wp-content/upl…
If anybody wonders why the characters are lacking feet.... Pöppel don't have feet.
I think I did over 43 chracter illustrations and after the Swiss partner asked for 2 special illustrations I sadly had to skip Medusa (with her snake hair in hair rollers) and the Scream (the Munch one...). Just so you know what you're missing.
Up from today you can order the card game online or check in local stores. They should be available in Germany, Austria and... Switzerland though Switzerland got another package design with Helvetia and Wilhelm Tell.
I know some other countries will follow but for these information you'd rather check on boardgamegeek regulary. They list the country versions quite fast.
