Libby Blainey is a board game enthusiast. When Tess showed her the [Question Time] game, her first question was “what are the strategies you can use to win the game?” This was a key moment in the development of the game. Strategy became the main focus to winning the game.
Both Tess and Libby recognised that many Australians don’t know much about Australian politics and political history. By introducing strategy cards into the game play Bingo! Anyone could win provided they used these cards wisely and played them with rat cunning against other players! “The idea is to win, at any cost – just like the real thing!”
Libby brought her experience and skills as a successful graphic designer to the game and the results speak for themselves. The game is visually beautiful, reflecting the ambiance of the Australian House of Representatives, as well as the history of the Australian parliament with all the past Prime Ministers represented on the board. -- Question Time game website
