Description

This game is basically a computer game version of the popular German board game Mensch ärgere Dich nicht!, but it features its own addition to the original rules.

In Mensch ärgere Dich nicht!, two to six players trying to bring their four game pieces from there home into the finish row, by moving each piece one time around the complete board. On there way, they can kick out other pieces of other players which are in the way. Those pieces have to restart from the home. The player, who first has all four pieces in the finish row wins the game.

Mensch ärgere Dich (nicht)! uses the four player board (the real-life board has a four player board on one side and a six player board on the other side) and it can be decided if two, three or four players want to play (the computer can fill any missing human players).

The special rules of this version are special events that are usually triggered by stopping on a "?"-field. Events ranging from slower movement (halved dice number), faster movement, teleportation, backward movement, moving an opponents piece, kicking out a certain opponents piece (or even an own), earthquake (removing some pieces), alien abduction (removing one piece), swapping pieces and the trap (kicking out the piece which stops at the trap position).

Trivia

Some of the game's music/voice-overs are "borrowed" from other places.

For example when the UFO flies over the screen, part of the intro theme of The X-Files plays or when you win the game, UT's "Congratulations, you are the winner." sounds.
