DETAILS

Question Time Board Game (2nd edition) is the best Australian game since Squatter, and perfect for anyone who follows Australian politics. It’s a cross between Trivial Pursuit and Monopoly – dice are thrown to go around a board, interspersed with general questions about Australian politics. Just like real life, the object is to get to the front benches and pass bills (by answering portfolio specific questions in areas such as Arts, Foreign Affairs, the Environment, Treasury…).

Political knowledge is rewarded, but so are tactics, sneakiness and alliances. And there are a number of different Wild Cards that can be used to disrupt know-alls – by sending them to the back benches, blocking a proposed bill, and WORSE. Question Time is one of the few games where any rule can be changed if everyone agrees.

And it’s fun ! The inclusion of Filibuster cards forces participants to speak to topics such as the separation of church and state, the national anthem, and federalism. Vexatious souls can merrily argue the most ridiculous points of view – as long as they don’t stop.

As well as fun, Question Time is a great educational tool and introduction to parliamentary politics. That’s what it was invented for. Co-creator Tess Shannon was tutoring in politics at Sydney University when she came up with the game as an tool for her students.

Senator John Faulkner received a prototype as a 50th birthday present and suggested a commercial release. A decade later it’s ready for folks who’ve never been a Federal Senator.

And people everywhere can now have a multiple choice go at naming Australia’s first woman premier (Carmen Lawrence), the term used for an affirmative vote in parliament (Aye), whether it was Prime Minister Holt, Lyons, Bruce or Curtin who didn’t die in office (Bruce), or whether Australia has a Bill of Rights (No), who said ‘please explain’ (Pauline Hanson), and what Kim Beazley, Malcolm Turnbull and Bill Clinton have in common (all Rhodes Scholars).

If you knew these answers, avoid the Rat Square, get treated well by Press Gallery cards, throw lucky numbers, get some Professor Richard Clever free answer cards, and do some deceptively good trading… you just might win
