What is the project goal and who is the project for?

You are looking for a game for bigger groups (up to eight players).
Tiefe Taschen is explained and learned within a few minutes. If you like social interaction and lively discussions you will feel right at home.
To be a successful politician you will need alliances of convenience. Sometimes you might not remember your promises.
You will get to bribe and threaten the other players, and sometimes even to protect yourself.
There is no downtime, since everybody is playing at the same time.
