GENIUS - IN THE CENTRE OF POWER
"Genius - In The Centre Of Power" by Cornelsen is the third title of a new generation of edutainment games. With this award-winning series, features of a high-class construction simulation were connected with substantial educational curricula for the first time. In the third part, which was developed in co-operation with the Federal Agency for Civic Education/ bpb and the ZDF (Germany's second public channel), players are able to assume political power by following the rules of the game of democracy.
We experience the rise of a political talent from the beginning of the journey as a normal citizen to the Chancellor of Germany. The player has to initiate and accomplish legislative policy concerning current problems until finally taking the opportunity to enter the Chancellery.
With the help of "Genius - In The Centre Of Power" a stylish, lively world of simulation opens up to the players, a world which broadens the features of the former games considerably. Policy is made from the perspective of the executive chair. The gaming tasks demonstrate the procedural character of policy as well as the need to find compromise. The players experience policy as peaceful intermediation of conflicts, which they get to know through concrete game situations.
