Simbabwe

1.8
02 April 2008

Political tyrant board game.

Overview

Simbabwe... You have to burn a lot of houses to become one of the world\'s foremost tyrants.

Welcome to Simbabwe, where the property is already owned and the houses built and you compete to burn and dispossess them. Plunder farms, deny grain silos to opposition supporters, rig elections, gaol opponents and taunt the Commonwealth as you use intimidation and stooges to create a mugaboly on power.

Compete with Robert Mugabe, Canaan Banana, Cecil Rhodes and Sir Godfrey Huggins to earn a place on the all-time EU travel ban list.

Easy to play but difficult to escape from, Simbabwe is a richly detailed, evolved board game with unscrupulous AI and editorial cartoon graphics.

Familiar gaming metaphors and an authentic OS X aqua interface minimise the download-to-despotism time. Detailed in-game help is provided to get players and their thugs up and burning as quickly as possible.

Features:

  • Challenging AI
  • Sophisticated inflation model: watch prices go up and savings erode every time you print money.
  • International reputation model: your actions determine whether you get aid, a travel ban or a slam dunk in the slammer on setting foot outside Zimbabwe.
  • Splenetic graphics
  • Vibrant sound effects
  • Over 60 dynamically triggered events, including adopting Marxism in 1988, the Land Reallocation Act 1992 and Operation Drive Out Rubbish
  • Detailed in-game help
  • Plumes of smoke

What's new in Simbabwe

Version 1.8:
  • Plumes of noxious smoke billow from torched other people\'s property
  • Bug fixes and tweaks
  • Version number incremented

I have iMac Intel Core 2 Duo and Mac OS X 10.5.2. This game (1.7.1) won't launch. Crash everytime I try to launch it.

I have uploaded a new version (1.7.1) that ought to address the problems some Leopard users have been having. Thanks for your patience. Please let me know how the revised code runs on your machine by emailing: software-support (at) thedailygrind.net

No, Esperanto uses ŝ for the /ʃ/ sound, so it can't be.

As a black zimbabwean, this game is hillarious and great to play it is a farce of everything that us zimbabweans have been through nice to be reminded of everything we have been through in the last couple of years and have a good laugh at it. Simbabwe is mushee steric!!!.

mushee steric: much hysteric: very funny? Is that Esperanto? Just curious.

Great game, but still crashes frequently and randomly. Have tried restarting and using Simbabwe as the only open program, but still crashes. G5 DP 2.7, 10.4.2, 1.5 GB RAM

When it crashes, could you please open Applications/Utilities/Console, save a copy of the log (from the file menu), and send it to software-support (at) thedailygrind.net ? Thanks

Hilarious at first, but not too advanced as games go - it's Monopoly only not as obvious which properties belong to the same group.

Isn't this is in extraordinary bad taste? Mugabe's murderous regime isn't a particularly amusing subject for a game.

Can I suggest boSIMnia next? Or perhaps SIMdi Arabia? Or hell, naSIM germany! Just because you can, doesn't mean you should, or you fall into the same filthy pit that Billy "get on with it" Connolly went to.

Get a grip. This isn't in the same league as what Connelly has been known to spout. It's a silly game, nothing to get upset about. Did you even play it? A round takes half an hour or less, give it a spin before you complain.

Another one of those case where the West sees him as evil while the landless poor there sees him as a hero.

If you can't laugh the face of horror and people who perpetrate it then curl up into a ball and cry. Parody is what makes the bitter taste of a world gone crazy bearable. Fun game, if a bit bland as it progresses.
