Christy's World board game takes aim at Premier Clark
Teachers Loren Letourneau and Jean-Michel Oblette created the satirical board game
The ongoing contract dispute between B.C.'s teachers and the Liberal government has gotten a little more personal with the creation of a new board game called Christy's World.
The game, which is being promoted on the crowd-funding website Kickstarter.com, invites participants to "Race across British Columbia to shut down schools, privatize the industry and raise your ratings!"
It was designed by two teachers Loren Letourneau and Jean-Michel Oblette, who say they are teachers in Vancouver and Coquitlam.
The satirical game takes direct aim at Premier Christy Clark on both a personal and political level.
"In the game you play as Christy, a clueless, tyrannical political wannabe without a conscience or a college degree who works tirelessly to become British Columbia's most grotesquely unpopular leader," says the Kickstarter webpage, which the pair set up to raise money to print the game.
"Your objective is to crystallize power in an economic superclass by systematically destroying public education, privatizing industry and looking good while you do it."
The pair say they have already raised $150, enough money to start printing prototypes of the game, and they eventually hope to put it into production.
The Premier's Office has not responded yet to requests for comments about the game.
