Dictatorship

Dictatorship is a one-on-one game in which the “dictator” chooses the path while the “peasants” try to uncover the path and make it from start to finish. Overall, the goal is to overthrow the dictator by completing physical challenges, dictator trivia all without losing their five lives before the game is over. “Dictatorship” focuses on the struggle between dictators and peasants and makes the players knowledgeable about the importance of democracy. This game gets the point across in a lighter and more general way about the unfairness of a dictator’s rule. During the game the peasants are at risk of losing lives to the dictator. Aside from being at risk of losing lives the peasant also must blindly attempt to uncover and avoid the dictator’s path - which represents their “power.” Once the peasant is victorious through finding their way to the finish, and having all their lives, they have officially overthrew the evil dictator and is the ruler for the next round of the game! Good luck and concur!
