  • Working out the Brexit deal requires patience, cunning, and forward thinking. Will you save the country, or unleash political and economic carnage?

    Designed by an historian, EU expert and political insider with over 20 years' deep knowledge of the inner workings of both Westminster and Brussels - and road tested by senior referendum campaign figures who "really enjoyed it" - this is the inside story of the Brexit deal. But could you do a better job than the politicians and Whitehall negotiators currently running the show? 

    You'll be

    - Shocked by the duplicity of your colleagues sneakily pursuing their own separate strategic goals;

    - Troubled by wobbly MPs ramping up the stakes;

    - Vexed by the prospect of more red buses;

    - And occasionally induced to do a bit of silliness in the name of fulfilling the democratic mission.

    This is a game of particular relevance for those studying politics, trainee civil servants, Brexit addicts, MPs with a sense of humour, and anybody trying to understand the dynamics of what is going on. Or it might be raining outside and the box does look rather nice.

    As a teaching aid, the concept is designed to allow for teachers and college lecturers to purchase a quality traditional board game from this site, and to download additional free DIY paper versions online at The Red Cell think tank website. That way there is a high standard game to teach from and to show how it works, while the whole of the class can make their own disposable versions (just requiring a printer, paper and scissors) and take part in groups.
