What is Die Macher about?
In Die Macher, seven regional elections in Germany take place sequentially. Players are in charge of national political parties, and must manage limited resources to win. Those with the most victory points at the end of the game win. Victory points can be earned in four different ways. In each region election, your party can get one to eighty victory points, depending on how well it does. A party that wins a regional election and has influence in the media will receive media-control victory points. The membership of each national party will increase as the game progresses, and this will give some victory points to each party. Lastly, parties score some victory points if their platform aligns with national opinions.
