Crowdfunding since 2010
The card game „Stimmvieh“ ironically addresses a German election campaign. While all parties are bidding for votes and for realizing their election platforms, often the real issue is fundraising through donations and public refunds. Supporters can vote for campaign slogans and for who the campaign donators will be. Besides, up to 36 supporters can become politicians by placing their portrait onto a card, the back of the box or even its title. The gameplay is language independent.

Kollegiale Kritik - cooperative criticism

Ich habe das Glück, seit ein paar Jahren nicht nur zum Spielanleitungsseminar der Fachgruppe Spiel in Göttingen (s. Link) eingeladen zu werden, sondern dieses gemeinsam mit Andre Maack vom Ravensburger Spieleverlag moderieren zu dürfen. Ein Workshop, den ich dort inzwischen organisiere, ist das "Anleitungswichteln". Wie beim Weihnachtswichteln wird zugelost, wem ich eine Anleitung schicke und von wem ich eine bekomme, um sie vorab zu lesen und dann vor Ort kollegial zu kritisieren. Ich habe gerade meine Email an die Kollegin fertiggestellt, die die Stimmvieh-Anleitung gewichtelt bekommt. Schon weil ich dafür die problematischen Dinge an der Anleitung aus meiner Sicht benenne, lohnt sich die Übung. Das Seminar findet immer vor dem Spieleautorentreffen in Göttingen statt (s. Link).

I am lucky enough to not only be invited to the game rules seminar by the German Fachgruppe Spiel (see link, sry, German only) in Göttingen, but to even be allowed to moderate it together with Andre Maack from Ravensburger Spieleverlag. One workshop I have organized for a few years is a "Secret Santa of Rules". Just like in a Secret Santa there's a lottery about who I am sending my rules to and who I get rules from. The latter I read in advance in order to criticize them cooperatively in the workshop. I just finished my email to the colleague who will get the Stimmvieh rules. For this I reflect what I consider problematic in my rules version. This alone makes the exercise worthwhile. The seminar always takes place place before the annual game designers' meeting in Göttingen (see link, German only).
