Democrazy

December 22, 2018 in the Hexagon (France): a pretty mess… ^^’


The French bourgeoisie is still blocking the centre;
the yellow vests are trying to block the borders.

The board will clearly lose, but who will win?

* Democrazy is also a French card game where players vote to change the rules.
