The GDR-Game was published in 2007 and since then, the DDR Museum sold thousands of it. Most people play it with their family to learn something about the GDR, but it is also a very nice game for your next birthday party.

The GDR is a serious topic, but the game is also very funny. Here is a question, I bet, you do not know the answer!

What did Ulbricht call "Monkey culture of Western imperalism"?

Here some possible answers:

A sandals

B coffee

C jazz

D bananas

Do you know the correct answer? I did not know it, but on the backside of the cards, you always find the right answer: C is right. The party leaders thought of american music such as jazz, rock`n`roll or swing to have bad influences on the GDR`s culture!

If you like to play the GDR-Game on your own, you can buy it online, in the DDR Museum or in bookshops.
