Politix is a game that takes a satiric look at Finnish political scene. Politix is a card game that puts famous politicians such as Matti Vanhanen and Ilkka Kanerva in the middle of a battle for votes, who at the same time try to cope with doping scandals, secret affairs and what not.
In the game, each player guides one politician and tries to persuade voters behind his/her party. There are many ways to lure the voters: if for example analytic argumentation seems do no good, you can always offer them some free coffee and cookies. Different political events, like a smoking ban or a tax hike, will affect the game. The party who manages best the vote gathering will win the game.
Politix can be played by 2-6 players and it takes around 30-45 minutes. Recommended player age is 10 years and more. Although the game is done in humoristic spirit, it still is a thoroughly thought out game which should please a gamer as well as more casual player.
