    With Wendepunkte you can play through a potential life in east Germany (at the time of the German Democratic Republic) and after the German reunification. You experience the pressure of the system, discrepancies in your potential biography and you need to make decisions living with its consequences.
    While playing you learn about the political turning point in 1989 which changed the life for millions of people completely.

    Wendepunkte is a simple, fast-paced and compelling card game. It's fun and different every time being played and it illustrates a part of German history.

    The game takes place over three rounds with three turns each. During a turn, all players choose one card from their hand to play, then handing the remainder to an adjacent player.
    After each player has revealed their cards simultaneously, the next turn starts with each player then selecting another card from the deck they were passed.
    All cards have different symbols on them which either allow you to play certain other cards or they forbid playing them because you're missing the right symbols on the cards you've already played.

    After round two and three, all players sum up the points on their played cards and the player with the most points wins the game.
