Afternoon dalliance

Indian elections board game

We picked up “Elections: the Race to the Parliament” board game in a souvenir shop along with some candles and a travel thermos. “New Game Board where you can capture enough States, win the Elections, and become the Pri-Minister of INDIA.” It’s neat to look at, but not much fun with two players. The chance cards are the best part:
Goofy brother masterminds publicity snafu. Move to No Action.
Opponent’s attack ads backfire. Go again!
Make secret deal with the governor. Win a state with no primary elections.
Tournament Cricket Victory leads to surge in polls. Move to the next State space.
Spouse involved in real estate scam. Wait 1 turn.
Your vice-presidential candidate actually makes a sensible speech. Go again.
