How to play:
Players select their tokens to start play. Each token designates their role in nonprofit art.
Marionette: Performing Artists/Designers
Blob of Clay: Writers/Composers/Visual Artists
Pawn: All technical/administrative/volunteer personnel (one token represents all)
Change Purse: Audience
Louis Vuitton Pocketbook: Donor/Funder
Fake Louis Vuitton Pocketbook: Development Director
Bent nail: Managing/Executive Director
Telescope looking up: Artistic Director/Curator
Microscope looking down: General Manager/CFO
Bloody leech: Critic/Journalist
Sorry: designated tokens for marketing/pr directors were deleted in the last budget cycle.
All players spin the Great Glass Wheel Of Art simultaneously in all directions and yell, “I Wanna!” The Wheel comes off its bearings; breaks into millions of pieces. Players move tokens anyplace in the room that feels most advantageous, regardless of the playing board or other players.
End of game:
Chaos. All players proclaim victory. None actually win.
WOW – you got this correct. I am the Development Director with 17 years experience in the Arts. I put my heart and soul into my jobs. I finally realized not only did I have to work to raise money, make sure the donor actually paid what they pledged, I had to fight the rest of the organization’s departments to make sure the funds landed where they were supposed to be. I am an artist, I am also an accountant. The accountant finally won out and I left the arts. I will pursue my personal arts and be happy and sane. Good luck to the rest of the team. it has been an experience!
