It is today one year ago since I started developing the World Dumbination game. I had the idea for the theme and story of the game when I was trying to go to bed early to get some sleep. I had to wake up 4 in the night to traveling all the way to Ecuador, where I was going to compete in the Paragliding World Cup. Instead of sleeping I started thinking of world politics and leaders that acted like small children. This was when Donald and Kim argued of which one that had the biggest nuclear button, and many more things was happening. I thought someone should make a fun board game about this situation. I quickly understood that this should be me when the title World Dumbination suddenly appeared in my head. I also got the idea to how these leaders could be the only leaders left on earth, making up a story where aliens travel to earth to “rescue” the smart people from the unavoidable future of our planet…
President Donald Trump
– United States of America.
Trump is the character that inspired most of the cards in the game. He has got a giant ego, but is not too popular. Trump’s first goal is to build an amazing wall on the Mexican border. This takes quite some time and money, and of course Mexico wouldn’t pay for it!
President Nicolas Maduro
Maduro sits on the world’s largest oil resources, but with him as a leader his nation is close to bankruptcy. A leader who suggest that his people should breed rabbits so they don’t starve just have to take part in this game! Maduro’s first goal in is merely to remain in power.
President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan – Turkey.
When Erdoğan tore the theory of evolution from school books in Turkey, he easily qualified to be one of the characters in this game. His first goal is to become a successful dictator!
President Vladimir Putin
Putin sits on his rocking horse, not completely happy with the circumstances. His first goal is to reclaim some lost areas to be back in the U.S.S.R!
Supreme Leader Kim Jong-un – North Korea.
Kim is very popular in his nation and has a huge ego. Even tough Kim has been a good boy lately, he is not the guy you would thrust the most. His first goal is still to become a fearsome Nuclear Power, to do that he needs to find a Genius!
