The roleplay game Members allows for the player to take on the role of an EU member state. In the course of the game they are confronted with different questions that determine the further development of the chosen state. The goal is to introduce young people to the topic of politics through a playful approach. In the course of the game they come into contact with a wide variety of questions and topics and are encouraged to deal with them.
In order to use the game in the field of school education, it is designed to be played with a maximum of 27 players at the same time. Thus, it can be used as an alternative teaching method in secondary schools, in order to learn about European domestic politics in a playful way.
