Top Secret Monopoly is a game based on social system. In America, people don’t really know what China is and mostly, people stereotype
culture subconsciously. Mostly, people know another country by reading or watching documentary. But, I don’t think these are correct ways to understand a country because Audience can’t
totally understand a different social system without experience. So, in this project, I tried to translate a Chinese social system profile into a new form, game, which can bring experience to audiences. In this game, I tried to separate
Chinese society as three hierarchies, each
hierarch has specific way to make live. Player will play game while being asked questions. In this process, player actually is studying Chinese social culture without knowing. When player are playing game they have to follow the rule of game, which can be annoying because there are a lot rules are unfair.
What is the best way to get your daughter into a good elementary school?
A. Apply for the school the usual way
B. Donate a library to the school
C. pry into the school president’s
interests and try to bribe him/her
D. Force your daughter to get as many certificates as she can in order to improve her competitiveness.
Correct answer: ABCD (A-D work for the purpose but C will be most effective way with no doubt.) So, it means players have to follower the rule if they want to make live in the social system.
