Radio-Sende-Spiel [Radio transmission game], a Nazi propaganda board game

Object | Accession Number: 2008.356.1

Playing board for a Nazi propaganda game, Radio-Sende-Spiel: Ein luestiges Wuerfelspiel fuer vier Personen [Radio Station Game: A funny dice game for four people.] The game is based upon the sending of radio messages between transmission towers of the German Armed Forces within Germany circa 1942, thus Czechoslovakia and Poland are shown as part of Germany. The player's goal is to make it around the board while avoiding enemy or foreign radio stations. Radio transmissions are monitored by enemies of Germany. Cities outside German boundaries, such as London, Paris, Bucharest, and Moscow, are marked with red dots with question marks and must be approached with caution. The starting place is Stuttgart and the goal is Berlin.
