Debt? It’s only a game
|Play at getting the
IMF off your back
If anyone thought that some debtor countries take their responsibilities to the multilaterals less than seriously, they won't be encouraged by the arrival of a new board game - Deuda Eterna.
Eternal Debt comes with the catchline: "¿Quien es capaz de vencer al FMI?" - literally, who can beat the IMF? It's designed for anyone from as young as 10 and the rules of the game make it fairly clear that the IMF is the bad guy.
"The main goal is to overcome all the obstacles and repay the IMF," it says.
The game, brought out by Argentine company Ruibal, bears a certain resemblance to Monopoly in as much that players roll dice and move their pieces around a square board. Depending on where they land they can make purchases or will suffer penalties.
