Product Description

A day in public service--the usual horror. The colleagues in the town office are desperately trying to keep everyone working, in the tax office the civil servants are trying to avoid giving money to anybody and the ecologists in the environmental office can hardly accept the job office's plans to build even more plants.

Of course everybody works as quickly as possible, and the messengers are running for their life. That's no surprise, as all files have to be transported strictly through the official channels--all files?

Well, maybe one player or another will manage to speed up some files through less official channels. A telephone call here, a special delivery there, and in cases of emergency the consumption of energy-giving sugar pills increases rapidly. The main thing is to file things ("ad acta") at the right time. But be cautious: Delayed files might go into the shredder....

Players lead the town hall, the tax-, environment-, or job-office and try to file their own dossiers at the time promising the highest score.
