Object | Accession Number: 2006.475.3 a-h

Nazi propaganda board game, Radio-Sende-Spiel: Ein luestiges Wuerfelspiel fuer vier Personen [Radio Station Game: A funny dice game for four people.] The set includes a game board, one die, 4 game pieces, and instructions with the original box. This set has an additional game board with a game hand drawn on the back. The game is based upon the sending of radio messages between transmission towers of the German Armed Forces within the boundaries of Germany circa 1942, thus Czechoslovakia and Poland are shown as part of Germany. The player's goal is to make it around the gameboard while avoiding enemy or foreign radio stations. Radio transmissions are monitored by enemies of Germany and the 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. The game was manufactured in Nazi Germany after 1939.
